Panthers add another body at running back

With Mike Tolbert going on injured reserve/designated for return this week and Jonathan Stewart unlikely to play, the Panthers had to make a roster move Saturday.

The team announced they promoted Tauren Poole from the practice squad. To make room for him on the roster, tackle Garry Williams was placed on injured reserve, thinning them out at another position. Williams was their swing tackle, meaning their only reserve at the position is now Canadian undrafted rookie David Foucault.

Poole was in camp with the Panthers last year and on their practice squad, but went to camp with the Steelers this year.

The Panthers plan to have DeAngelo Williams back this week, but he missed the previous two with a hamstring strain.
