Panthers Announce Cameron Artis-Payne to Start at RB Sunday vs Vikings

Cameron Artis-Payne

Panthers coach Ron Rivera says running back Cameron Artis-Payne will start Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, the Associated Press reports.

However, Rivera says he expects Artis-Payne to split carries almost equally with Fozzy Whittaker, who had 100 yards rushing on 16 carries last week in a 47-26 win against the San Francisco 49ers.

The Panthers will be without running back Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) for at least a few weeks.

Artis-Payne played in the final three games last season with Stewart out and ran for 152 yards on 33 carries and a touchdown.
