Stephen Davis is OUT this week.

I guess the coaches thought Davis was jumping the gun on his return...I think most of us expected this anyway. Foster could have a decent game this week.

The AP wrote:CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Carolina running back Stephen Davis will not play Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons because of a knee injury.

DeShaun Foster, who ran for 174 yards and a touchdown filling in for Davis two weeks ago, will start instead.

Davis had arthroscopic surgery on his knee Sept. 17 and missed Carolina's win over Kansas City. He was supposed to miss anywhere from two to five weeks, but said he hoped to be back for the Falcons game. The Panthers were off last weekend.

``It's disappointing, but I want to be smart about when I go back in,'' Davis said. ``DeShaun's doing a great job, going in there and making plays. We've got guys that can go in there and get it done.

``I just have to get myself better and get myself ready.''

Davis said he had not ruled out returning next week to play against the Denver Broncos.

He plans to watch the game against Atlanta from the sidelines Sunday and help Foster as much as he can.

``I can see some things that he probably can't see during the game, that's basically what I'm doing,'' Davis said.

I have both Davis and Foster and the last thing I need is for this to turn into a RB controversy. I think the next three to five weeks are going to be a headache trying to figure out who to sit and start if Davis heals and Foster has another solid game. I also have Westbrook and on his bye, I'm thinking of starting both Panter RBs if Davis is playing. My other RBs are Moe Williams and Dominic Rhodes. Should be fun... :-?

I think Davis wants to get back before Foster has any more big games!
