Panthers coach John Fox said Williams will be a "game-time decision" for Saturday's preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Williams rushed for a franchise-record 1,515 yards and 18 touchdowns last season. He had a 25-yard TD run in the Panthers' loss to the Miami Dolphins last week.

No. 2 running back Jonathan Stewart missed his 15th straight practice Thursday with a sore left Achilles' tendon. He's expected to miss his third straight preseason game Saturday.

Linebacker Jon Beason (knee), safety Nate Salley (hand) and guard C.J. Davis (ankle) also didn't practice and won't play against the Ravens.
