  • Whittaker is officially inactive for Monday night's game against the Dolphins. Whittaker missed the last three games with a right high-ankle sprain, but he did not make an appearance on the injury report this week. The good news is the 28-year-old appears fully recovered from the injury, but is still being held out in favor of Cameron Artis-Payne as the Panther's No. 3 running back. Neither running back should see significant or consistent offensive chances while Jonathan Stewart and Christian McCaffrey remain healthy.

  • Panthers' Fozzy Whittaker: No go Sunday

    Whittaker (ankle) is listed as inactive Sunday versus the Falcons, David Newton of reports. Although Jonathan Stewart logged one limited practice this week, the Panthers backfield is otherwise healthy, so the offense can withstand Whittaker missing a third consecutive contest. Per Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer, Whittaker has been recovering from a right high-ankle sprain, making the decision a prudent one. Expect Christian McCaffrey and Cameron Artis-Payne to handle any carries not given to starting running back Jonathan Stewart.

  • Whittaker (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, David Newton of reports. Whittaker has missed the last two weeks with the right ankle injury, and though he was able to practice Thursday and Friday, it's unclear if he'll be healthy enough to contribute effectively by the time Sunday arrives. If active for the Week 9 contest, Whittaker would see the majority of his snaps on special teams.

  • Panthers' Fozzy Whittaker: Will not play Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Whittaker (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports. It marks back-to-back missed games for Whittaker, who was unable to practice this week. The 28-year-old has not seen consistent offensive snaps with the Panthers this season and currently has no timetable for his return.

  • Whittaker (ankle) sat out of Wednesday's practice, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports. Whittaker is in danger of missing back-to-back games for the first time since 2015. However, his consistently limited offensive snaps holds him back from being a viable fantasy option. Top running back Jonathan Stewart is battling a toe injury, but Whittaker still sits behind Christian McCaffrey on the depth chart, making it unlikely he logs substantial time.
