With a depleted running back corps following the injuries of Mike Tolbert and Jonathan Stewart, the Panthers have elevated running back Tauren Poole from the practice squad.
The team announced they promoted Tauren Poole from the practice squad. To make room for him on the roster, tackle Garry Williams was placed on injured reserve, thinning them out at another position. Williams was their swing tackle, meaning their only reserve at the position is now Canadian undrafted rookie David Foucault
Poole was signed to Carolina’s practice squad Thursday after attending training camp with the Steelers. He also spent time on the Panthers and Colts practice squads in 2013.
