DeAngelo Williams to Start against Colts?

Unbeknownst to many DeShaun Foster suffered a toe injury during the Cardinals game that has kept him out of practice this week. Carolina growl reports that DeAngelo Williams may get the start.

Foster’s injury raises the possibility that second-year back DeAngelo Williams could start Sunday against the defending Super Bowl champion Indianapolis Colts.

This is what many Panther fans have been waiting for. Also, if your going to beat the Colts you have to be able to run the ball in order to shorten the game and keep Peyton off the field. I think D-Will is ready for a start.


Goings Gone to IR

the team announced they’ve placed reliable third-string back and special teams captain Nick Goings on injured reserve.

Goings sustained his third career concussion against Tampa Bay and was inactive against New Orleans and Arizona. He returned nine kickoffs for a 19.3-yard average and had three special team tackles.

We're going to miss you Nick on special teams coverage!


Panthers Add a LB/Special Teamer

PANTHERS ADD LB CURRY: The Panthers added some depth at linebacker and filled the void left by Goings on special teams by signing seven-year veteran Donte Curry.

Curry played five seasons with the Detroit Lions after beginning his career with Washington in 2001. He was released before the regular season by Detroit, but re-signed for two games before being released Oct. 16.


Fox Remains Evasive on QB Starter

At first it appearted that maybe I was wrong in an earlier post on John Fox naming a QB early. Not! Foxy is still up to his old tricks.

Carolina Panthers quarterback David Carr was a full participant in today's practice, and afterward coach John Fox said that if Carr was healthy he would play in Sunday's game against Indianapolis at Bank of America Stadium.
But, Fox said, that did not necessarily mean that Carr would start. That raised the possibility that both Carr and the recently-signed Vinny Testaverde could get playing time against the Colts.

That's it, make the Colts prepare for both QB's.
