All will try to contribute more next Monday night against the Patriots.
Brockel had one rush for 1 yard, Smith had three carries for zero yards and Hixon had one catch for 8 yards.
The Panthers are on a bye Week 4 and return to action Week 5 at Arizona.
Mike Tolbert, meanwhile, had 48 yards on nine carries, getting most of his work in the second and third quarters, when the Panthers pulled away. He added 41 yards on three catches compared to Stewart's 3 on two.
In five games since returning from offseason ankle surgery, Stewart has yet to rush for more than 43 yards, averaging just 3.5 yards per carry. Regardless of whether or not Williams is active for Week 14, Stewart figures to continue to play a significant role in the running game at New Orleans.
Mitchell also had four tackles, including three solo. He's averaging 3.9 tackles per game.
So naturally, he threw for two touchdowns and ran for a third yet again.
Granted, it wasn't a flawless performance. He also threw two interceptions -- both on errant passes, even though one hit a leaping Brandon LaFell in the hands first.Newton also overthrew a wide open LaFell on a deep pass down the middle of the field late in the second quarter.
But overall, he did far more good than harm in a 27-6 victory, completing 18 of 29 passes passes for 263 yards. He also led the team with a season-high 68 yards on five carries, including a 56-yard scamper midway through the first quarter that he might have taken all the way if a defender hadn't tripped him up from behind.
Newton has now scored multiple touchdowns in three straight games. He'll look to keep it going in a tough division matchup Week 14 at New Orleans.
However, reports the Charlotte Observer, the team is probably just being cautious with Stewart following his offseason ankle surgeries.
It wasn't the dominant performance we've gotten used to from Carolina, but the Panthers were facing an offense that averaged 34.8 points over its previous four games. And Carolina played without defensive end Charles Johnson for much of the second half.
The Panthers DST got a bonus on the game's final play, when safety Robert Lester intercepted Tom Brady. Officials threw a flag against Carolina, then picked it up, preserving the turnover.
The Panthers DST should be fearsome again Week 12 at Miami.
The Panthers visit the Saints in Week 14.
It was the sixth time this season that he recorded at least nine tackles in a game. He's averaging 8.5 in 12 games.
He finished with three tackles, including two solo. He entered the day with only four tackles all season.
Davis finished with five tackles (two solo), Johnson had four tackles (two solo) and three quarterback hits, Short had four tackles (two solo) and Lotulelei had two tackles (one solo).
Linebacker Luke Kuechly was second on the team with six tackles (one solo), which trailed Hardy's team-high eight tackles.
Jonathan Stewart, who did start, led the team with 14 carries, but for only 39 yards. And most of those carries came either early in the game, when the Panthers hadn't gotten a chance to switch gears yet, or late in the game, when the outcome was already decided. Tolbert carried the load in the second and third quarters, rushing nine times for 48 yards and catching three passes for 41. Unlike Stewart, who was unable to extend plays, Tolbert excelled in traffic, using his size to bounce off defenders.
Williams' status going forward is unknown, but Tolbert will look to make the most of whatever opportunities he gets Week 14 at New Orleans.
Scott is dealing with a knee injury. He has missed the team's last three games due to the knee injury.
Stewart has yet to play this season, and his availability for Week 9 is not yet known. He was able to participate in practice during the week.
The others are as follows: wide receivers James Shaw and Brenton Bersin, tight end Zack Pianalto, guard Hayworth Hicks, defensive tackle Sione Fua, linebackers Doug Hogue and Ben Jacobs, safety Robert Lester and running back Tauren Poole.
The 32-year Florence has spent most of his career as a starter with San Diego, Jacksonville, Buffalo and Detroit.
The Panthers face the Rams in Week 7.
Blackburn is dealing with a foot injury. He was limited in practice all week due to the injury. Blackburn has missed the past two games with the injury.
