    Panthers' Fozzy Whittaker: Avoids injury report Wednesday

    Whittaker (ankle) wasn't listed on the Panthers' injury report Wednesday. Unlike Jonathan Stewart (ankle), Whittaker actually made a limited showing in one practice last week, but clearly caution was exercised with the third-year pro. Nevertheless, Whittaker didn't make much of a splash during the regular season, and his lack of usage in the NFC championship game (just six of 72 offensive snaps) likely won't afford him many touches behind the workhorse that is Stewart.

    Panthers' Fozzy Whittaker: Limited in practice Friday

    Whittaker was limited in practice Friday, Lindsay Jones of USA Today reports. This was Whittaker's first action since his near-no show in the NFC Championship game, when was on the field for six of 72 offensive snaps. He is still considered questionable, but the picture could become much clearer with next week's practice reports.

    Panthers' Fozzy Whittaker: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Whittaker (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer reports. Whittaker has been tending to a high right ankle sprain since Week 16, which wiped away all game action through the NFC championship game. In that contest, he managed just two carries for minus-two yards and didn't catch his only target, but considering he earned just six of the Panthers' 72 offensive snaps, he's unlikely to play much of a role in Super Bowl 50.

    Panthers' Fozzy Whittaker: Active Sunday

    Whittaker (ankle) is active for Sunday's NFC championship game versus the Cardinals, Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer reports. After a four-week respite to recover from a high ankle sprain, Whittaker is available to the Panthers' ground attack, though Jonathan Stewart (ankle) himself is primed to receive most of the reps. Nevertheless, Whittaker could serve in a change-of-pace role to make sure Stewart stays fresh.

    Panthers' Fozzy Whittaker: Listed as probable this week

    Whittaker (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's NFC championship game against the Cardinals. As is fellow running back Jonathan Stewart, which caps Whittaker's fantasy upside this weekend, so long as Stewart is able to avoid any injury setbacks as Sunday's NFC championship game against the Cardinals progresses.

    Panthers' Fozzy Whittaker: Full practice Wednesday

    Whittaker (ankle) was a full practice participant Wednesday. Undertaking every practice to kick off championship week prep, Whittaker fulfilled expectations and is in line to make his first appearance since Week 16. Jonathan Stewart (foot) wasn't as lucky Wednesday, though his absence from drills was likely precautionary. If Stewart suits up Sunday against the Cardinals, Whittaker will revert to his typical reserve role out of the backfield.

    Panthers' Fozzy Whittaker: To practice Wednesday

    Whittaker (ankle) plans to practice Wednesday, the Charlotte Observer reports. Whittaker has been out since suffering a high ankle sprain in Week 16, but stands a chance of returning ahead of Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Cardinals. In order to do such, Whittaker will likely have to hold up well through the practice week, so his participation level should help project his status. While Jonathan Stewart (ankle) is cemented as the Panthers' starting running back, having Whittaker available would certainly be a welcomed development from Carolina's perspective.

    Panthers' Fozzy Whittaker: Won't play Sunday

    Whittaker (ankle) won't play Sunday against the Seahawks. With Whittaker unavailable this weekend, fullback Mike Tolbert and rookie Cameron Artis-Payne are slated serve to back up Jonathan Stewart, who is poised to return to action after missing the Panthers' last three games with a foot injury.

    Panthers' Fozzy Whittaker: Very iffy this week

    Coach Ron Rivera doesn't expect Whittaker (ankle) to be ready to play Sunday against the Seahawks. Though Whittaker's high ankle sprain figures to sideline him this weekend, following the team's first-round bye, the Panthers' backfield will be bolstered by the return of starter Jonathan Stewart, who is not on the team's injury report in advance Sunday's NFC Division Playoff tilt against Seattle.

    Panthers' Fozzy Whittaker: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Whittaker (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. Whittaker is the only question mark among Panthers that entered the postseason with an ailment, as Jonathan Stewart (foot) and Ted Ginn (knee) have avoided the injury report entirely. The backfield boasts enough depth (Cameron Artis-Payne, Mike Tolbert, and Brandon Wegher) to get by in the event of Whittaker's absence, but he wouldn't be afforded many touches anyway with Stewart back in the fold. In any case, expect Whittaker's status to receive clarity as the week draws to a close.
