DeAngelo Williams (ankle) worked with trainers on the side at Wednesday's practice.

Williams hasn't played since week four and he shouldn't be in any fantasy starting line up. His playing status is uncertain, he isn't fully healthy, and a match up with a solid Seattle defense is not the formula for solid fantasy point production.

Fozzy Whittaker (thigh) did not participate in practice Wednesday.

Whitaker was unable in week seven, and the percentage of him missing week eight continues to increase. Regardless, Whittaker shouldn't be started as Carolina is going up against a stiff Seattle defense.

he Panthers announced they've released longtime defensive back Charles Godfrey.

Godfrey has registered 19 tackles this season for the Panthers and has spent all of his seven year career with Carolina. He will likely get pickled up by a team in need of a veteran defensive back.

Panthers signed S Robert Lester and OT Martin Wallace to the practice squad.

Just a little bit of defensive depth here, but neither will have any remote fantasy impact.

Panthers sign OG Chris Scott from their practice squad.

Just building up some offensive line depth. Really. You can't have too much o-line depth, people.

Panthers are releasing S Charles Godfrey, according to his agent.

Godfrey has been with the Carolina Panthers for seven seasons but the defense has taken a huge step back in 2014 and changes had to be made. He led a Panthers' defensive backfield that was allowing over 250 yards per game through the air.

NFL informs the Panthers that Luke Kuechly shouldn't have been ejected from Sunday's game, and wont be subjected to a fine for contact with an official.

The contact with the official was deemed accidental, so everyone is moving past it. No word on whether or not Keuchly and the official have communicated, but it shouldn't matter at this point anyway.

Panthers DB Robert Lester cleared waivers and became a free agent Monday.

Lester will be looking for another team to sign him sometime in the near future. He spent most of the time this season on the practice squad after having three interceptions in 2013.

DeAngelo Williams may return to practice on Wednesday.

Williams is still nursing his high ankle sprain that he suffered in Week 4. Jonathan Stewart beat him back into the lineup this past week in their loss to the Packers on Sunday. Even when Williams does return to the Panthers' lineup, he won't be anything more than a low-upside committee back, a RB 4 or 5.

Byron Bell (elbow) and Trai Turner (knee/ankle) are getting MRI's on Monday.

Byron was forced to leave Sunday's blowout loss to the Packers with an elbow injury. We will have to wait and see what the MRI reveals but for now undrafted rookie David Foucault is in line to protect Cam Newton's blindside in Week 8.
