Panthers RB D'Onta Foreman was one of eight players who were out of pratice on Wednesday.
Panthers RB D'Onta Foreman managed just 24 yards on 11 carries (2.2 per rush) in Sunday's 13-3 loss at Baltimore. There's no lopsided score to blame for taking work away from Foreman here, and Chuba Hubbard claimed the team's only other 4 RB rushes (for 0 yards). Next week brings another tough defense in a matchup with Denver. The Broncos have proved vulnerable at times against the run, but Carolina's general offensive struggles won't help. We'll see who lines up at QB for the Panthers in that one. Then comes a Week 13 bye.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) It was almost inconceivable that the Panthers' running game might improve after trading star running back Christian McCaffrey to the San Francisco 49ers. Carolina has averaged 159.5 yards per game on the ground in the four games since McCaffrey was traded; it averaged 90.3 yards per game in the six games with him in the backfield. The Panthers have recommitted to the running game under interim coach Steve Wilks, and D'Onta Foreman has proven to be the ideal back for the system - a tough, physical back who wears down opponents.
Foreman has gone over 100 yards in three of four games since the McCaffrey trade: 'Grateful for this opportunity'
D'Onta Foreman wasn't the only Panthers running back that make an impact in the team's Week 10 win.
