Nov 8 - A team source has confirmed with Fanball publisher Paul Charchian that Carolina is expecting running back Stephen Davis to be unable to start Sunday's game against Tampa Bay. The team plans to have De'Shaun Foster as its starter, with Davis possibly seeing limited action. The source also noted that Davis plays his former team, Washington, next week and wants to be as effective as possible in the revenge game.
Views: The Panthers beat the Bucs in week two in large part due to their effective running game, so don't be surprised if Foster gets a large workload. A final determination will be made shortly before game time. Check back at Fanball for the final verdict on Sunday morning.
