Panthers QB Newton, RBs Williams, Stewart to play
Ron Rivera says help is on the way for the Carolina Panthers' offense. Rivera says he expects quarterback Cam Newton and running backs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart to play in the team's second preseason game Aug. 17 against Kansas City. All three practiced Sunday after missing Carolina's preseason opener against Buffalo. That should help an offense that managed just 75 total yards in the first half of Carolina's 20-18 loss to the Bills.
