CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers placed starting running back DeAngelo Williams and wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery on the inactive list for Sunday night's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
It was the second straight week on the list for Williams, Carolina's all-time leading rusher, since suffering a hamstring injury in practice a week and a half ago. Carolina signed Darrin Reaves off the practice squad on Saturday as insurance.
The Panthers also placed running back Fozzy Whittaker (quad) on the inactive list.
Cotchery suffered a hamstring injury during Thursday's practice. Signed as a free agent from Pittsburgh during the offseason, he had caught four catches in each of the first two games for a combined 78 yards.
