Oct 15 - 12:55 PM

Fozzy Whittaker aggravated his quad injury during Sunday's tie with the Bengals.

Whittaker didn't seem too concerned about the injury. "I'll still hit it," he said when asked about his Week 7 status. Jonathan Stewart (knee) has a good shot at returning to the starting lineup anyway.
Oct 12 - 9:14 PM

Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker exited Sunday's Week 6 game against the Bengals with a leg injury.

Whittaker had been battling a quad issue the past couple weeks. He actually got the start in this one in a depleted Carolina backfield, but rushed for just 25 yards and one touchdown on nine carries. Ideally, he wouldn't have been in any fantasy lineups in this jumbled mess of a running back situation.
Oct 12 - 3:48 PM

Coach Ron Rivera confirmed that Fozzy Whittaker (quad) was close to 100 percent Sunday.

Whittaker got zero snaps as he was merely the emergency back behind Darrin Reaves and Chris Ogbonnaya.
Oct 6 - 12:42 PM

Fozzy Whittaker was active but did not play a snap against the Bears Week 5.

Darrin Reaves and Chris Ogbonnaya saw all the running back work for Carolina. There was no word on why Whittaker sat out, though he may have aggravated his quad injury. He is not on the fantasy radar.
Oct 5 - 5:14 PM

The Associated Press' Steve Reed believes Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker will get more work than Darrin Reaves against the Bears.

"The Panthers list Darrin Reaves as their starting running back, but don't read too much into that," Reed said. "I expect to see more of Fozzy Whittaker." Reaves will get the first crack, but Whittaker could earn the most carries with a strong showing. This is shaping up as a situation to avoid in fantasy.
Oct 5 - 12:24 PM

Fozzy Whittaker (quad) confirms he'll return for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Whittaker sat out Wednesday's practice, but was "limited" in Thursday's session. The ex-Brown will back up default Panthers starter Darrin Reaves. Whittaker is not on the Week 5 fantasy radar.
Oct 2 - 2:53 PM

Coach Ron Rivera is pretty confident Fozzy Whittaker (quad) will return for Week 5.

This qualifies as big news for the Panthers, as DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert are all sidelined. Whittaker projects as support behind Darrin Reaves.
Sep 29 - 12:55 PM

Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker (quad) is doubtful for Week 4.

With Jonathan Stewart (knee) also sidelined, Darrin Reaves and Tauren Poole will back up DeAngelo Williams. Whittaker remains week to week.
Sep 27 - 7:46 PM

Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker (quad) remains sidelined.

Whittaker is expected to miss Week 4, leaving only recent practice-squad signee Darrin Reaves behind DeAngelo Williams. Whittaker has likely blown his only chance at coming into re-draft value this season.
