Stewart, Davis and Bell out for Panthers
By Pat Yasinskas
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers will be without several key players Thursday night.
Running back Jonathan Stewart (toe), linebacker Thomas Davis (hamstring) and right tackle Byron Bell (ankle) all have been declared inactive for the game with the Giants.
Either Bruce Campbell or Garry Williams will start in Bell’s place. With Stewart out, DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert likely will take on bigger roles. Davis has been rotating in as a situational player, so the Panthers likely will have to stick more with their starters.
The other inactives for Carolina are quarterback Jimmy Clausen, safety Colin Jones, guard Mike Pollak and defensive tackle Sione Fua.
