CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Carolina running back DeAngelo Williams is questionable for the Panthers' game against Tampa Bay with a sprained ankle.

Williams missed his third straight practice Friday. He leads Carolina with 1,022 yards rushing.

His absence on Sunday would make it hard for the Panthers to establish their running game and take pressure off Matt Moore, who is making his fourth career start and first in two years. Starter Jake Delhomme has a broken finger.

Receiver Dwayne Jarrett (ankle) and cornerback Captain Munnerlyn (concussion) are doubtful. Receiver Muhsin Muhammad (knee) and fullback Brad Hoover (ankle) are probable. Reserve defensive tackle Tank Tyler (knee) won't play.
