Fozzy Whittaker (ankle) wasn't listed on the Carolina 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.
This was Whittaker's first action since his near-no show in the NFC Championship game, when he was on the field for six of 72 offensive snaps. He is still considered questionable for the Super Bowl, but the picture could become much more clear with next week's practice reports.
Fozzy 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 Carolina Panthers ' 72 offensive snaps, he's unlikely to play much of a role in Super Bowl 50.
Fozzy 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 Carolina 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.
Fozzy 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.
