CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart and starting right tackle Byron Bell have been ruled out against the New York Giants. Linebacker Thomas Davis also is out for Carolina.
Stewart and Bell didn't practice all week and were listed as questionable.
Garry Williams will start for Bell.
The Giants will be without three offensive starters — receiver Hakeem Nicks, running back Ahmad Bradshaw and right tackle David Diehl — as well as receiver Domenik Hixon and defensive end Adewale Ojomo because of injuries. All five were ruled out Wednesday and didn't travel to Charlotte.
Cornerback Michael Coe and tight end Adrien Robinson are also inactive for the Giants.
The Giants will dress just four receivers: Victor Cruz, Ramses Barden, Jerrel Jernigan and the rookie Rueben Randle.
