Davis' status a worry for Denver
DENVER -- Broncos running back Terrell Davis, his left leg ailing the past two weeks, is questionable for today game against San Diego.
He had been listed as probable until the team announced the change Saturday.
Davis thinks the soreness above his left ankle is related to the severely sprained left ankle and foot he sustained in the season opener. That injury caused him to miss five games and parts of two others.
Davis, the NFL's 1998 MVP, blew out his knee the week before last year's Oakland game. The ankle injury prevented him from testing the knee to any extent this season.
DOLPHINS: Coach Dave Wannstedt said wide receiver Bert Emanuel would be inactive for the third time in the past four games.
"This is just a numbers game," Wannstedt said. "We are overloaded at the receiver spot with five guys. Most teams carry three or four. This is a week-to-week thing for Emanuel. We have confidence in Bert winning games for us, and this is nothing negative on him. We're just going with the guys we think give us a better chance this week."
PANTHERS: Carolina will be without starting running back Tshimanga Biakabutuka when it plays Minnesota today.
Biakabutuka, who did not practice last week because of a painful turf toe injury, didn't make the trip to Minneapolis because doctors want him to rest the injury, said team spokesman Charlie Dayton.
Biakabutuka's injury means the Panthers' starting backfield will include running back Brad Hoover and fullback Chris Hetherington.
Hoover, an undrafted rookie from Western Carolina, has 10 carries for 33 yards this season. Hetherington, a five-year veteran, will make his second career start in place of William Floyd, who is out with broken ribs.
Panthers coach George Seifert said he's confident Hoover and Hetherington will pick up the slack.
"I'm very comfortable with them," Seifert said. "They're both pretty sharp kids and hard workers. I look forward to watching them play."
