Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams is out for Sunday's game against the Bengals, the team announced Friday.

Running back Jonathan Stewart will be a game-time decision, the team said

Williams is currently hampered by a high ankle sprain. He has played in two games this season. Stewart has not played since Week 3 with a sprained knee. Mike Tolbert, the team's third running back, is on short-term injured reserve with a hairline fracture in his leg. 

Darrin Reaves, an undrafted rookie, received the majority of the snaps at running back last week, followed by Chris Ogbonnaya.

Report: Bengals WR A.J. Green will not play Sunday​

Carolina averages the second-fewest yards per rushing attempt in the NFL. The Panthers are 3-2 on the season and play at the Bengals on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.
