RB Stewart, LB Davis out for Panthers vs. Giants

Running back Jonathan Stewart and linebacker Thomas Davis are listed as out for the Carolina Panthers' game Thursday night vs. the New York Giants.

Stewart has sat out practice all week with what was called an ankle injury. Head coach Ron Rivera clarified Wednesday, saying Stewart had a sore toe. 

“It's one those things where if we're playing on Sunday, he's got a much, much better chance than he does if we're playing on Thursday,” Rivera said Wednesday. “He came out and it was still a little stiff, a little bit sore. They're going to continue to work it out and see how he is.”

Davis suffered a hamstring injury this week and has had limited participation in practice this week. Coming off his third reconstructive knee surgery as well as a strained calf in the offseason, Davis has been used situationally in games and occasionally on special teams.

Also out for the Panthers on Thursday is right tackle Byron Bell. He sprained his ankle late in the Saints' win on Sunday. Garry Williams took the majority of first-team reps Wednesday and is expected to start in place of Bell. S/ST Colin Jones and G Mike Pollak are also out with shoulder injuries.

Inactive but not injured are QB Jimmy Clausen and DT Sione Fua.

Please tell coach Rivera not to let the team
Wear the blue uniforms. They are bad luck!

Marty Hurney is a no-talent ass clown.

Marty Hurney is worse at being a GM than Joe and Ron are at being journalists. And that's bad.
