Wynne's DeAngelo Williams doubtful for Sunday's game against the Saints

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Jonathan Stewart is likely to get his

second straight start at running back for the Carolina Panthers

with DeAngelo Williams still sidelined with a sprained left foot.

Williams missed practice again Friday and is listed as doubtful

for Sunday's game against New Orleans. Williams hasn't played or

practiced since getting hurt in the final minute of Carolina's win

over San Francisco on Oct. 24.

Stewart managed just 30 yards on 14 carries in last Sunday's

loss to St. Louis in which the Panthers (1-6) had 25 net yards


Carolina will again be without right tackle Jeff Otah against

the Saints because of a lingering knee injury. Linebacker Dan

Connor is probable with a sore hip after practicing Friday.
