Comments from Carolina Panthers head coach John Fox following the team's practice.
On if tackle
On if the Panthers will replace Barton on the roster before Saturday: That's more of a personnel, Marty (Hurney) question. I'm sure they're scouring the talent pool.
On using running back
On if it is important for the offense to build some confidence against Tennessee: As we go along we'll be a little bit more like our personality. There are things we're working, people we're trying to evaluate. You like to always be successful, but right now at this point the reason you have the preseason games is to pick the right 53 guys and have an opportunity to evaluate them. That's why your starters don't play the whole game, because you're trying to evaluate people.
On how linebacker
On if Williams will get a chance to play with the first-team defense against the Titans: There's a possibility. He'll definitely get some playing time Saturday night.
On when he will name the starters at the positions where there is competition: Probably game week of the New York Giants.
On there being so many jobs up for grabs this year: I don't think it's a negative. I think we've got a lot of good options. I think it's a positive. I'm not concerned that much. Getting everybody out there better right now is the main objective.
