CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The injuries continue to mount in the Carolina Panthers backfield. Coach Ron Rivera said Monday that bruising Pro Bowl fullback Mike Tolbert will miss Sundays game against the Baltimore Ravens with a hairline fracture in his left leg and running back Jonathan Stewart will be reevaluated on Friday with a severely sprained right knee. Rivera said while the injuries are another setback for Carolinas struggling running game, he added that the MRIs on the players indicated "nothing is catastrophic -- and thats the best part." Both injuries were sustained in a lopsided 37-19 home loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night. Rivera also said outside linebacker Thomas Davis would be reevaluated on Friday, but wouldnt specify the nature of his injury. Running back was one of the deepest positions on the roster entering the season, but just three weeks in general manager Dave Gettleman could be forced to look outside the organization for help. The Panthers were already dangerously thin in the backfield coming into the Steelers game with starting running back DeAngelo Williams and third-string back Fozzy Whittaker out with hamstring injuries. Rivera said he hopes to get Williams back to practice on Wednesday. The only healthy running back on the roster is undrafted rookie Darrin Reaves, who was promoted from the practice squad on Saturday as an emergency option. Richie Brockel will take over at fullback against the Ravens in Tolberts spot. Carolinas running game ranks 29th in the league, averaging just 72.3 yards per game on the ground. Thats a huge drop off from 2013 when the NFC South champions averaged 126.6 yards on the ground and ran for at least 100 yards in 15 of 16 games. With Stewart starting for Williams, the Panthers failed to establish against the Steelers 29th-ranked run defence. Stewart was limited to 31 yards on five carries. As a team, the Panthers were outrushed 264-42 by the Steelers. "We didnt block good enough, all of us," tight end Greg Olsen said. "Its pretty simple. ... Even when we did get the running game going it seemed like every positive run was negated by a penalty. Weve got to stop hurting ourselves." Rivera said Carolinas running game struggles are due in part to the injuries to quarterback Cam Newton. The NFLs most productive rushing quarterback over the past three seasons with 2,032 yards rushing and 28 TDs has been handcuffed by ankle and rib injuries. In fact, the Panthers didnt call any designed runs for Newton on Sunday night and he was limited to 7 yards on two carries. Newton said he "wasnt asked to run" against the Steelers. Rivera said the Panthers want to limit the number of shots Newton takes on the field. He estimated Newton was hit nine or 10 times by the Steelers, which included three sacks. "We know he is a big part of what we do," Rivera said of Newton, who is Newton is on pace to rush for 384 yards this season -- well behind his career average of 677. "The thing it shows is we cant rely on him all of the time. Now we have to find other answers and other ways to (run the ball) -- and the coaching staff is working on that." When asked if the Panthers can be an effective running team without Newton, Rivera said "were going to have to be." Carolinas leading rusher after three games is Stewart with 88 yards on 29 carries, a 3-yard average. "Right now hes not quite where we need him," Rivera said of Newton. "He will get there. The thing we have to do in the meantime is (everybody else) has to pick it up." Rivera that includes the offensive line, which he said needs to be more physical and "play with more attitude." The Panthers were looking for their first 3-0 start since 2003, the year they went to the Super Bowl. Instead, theyll head into Sunday looking to stay above .500 against another tough, physical AFC North defensive opponent in the Ravens -- a team that beat the Steelers 26-6 just two weeks ago. "Thats the one thing about the NFL: Its a long year," Olsen said. "Were 2-1. Were going to play a very good team next week thats coming off of two back-to-back wins. They beat the team we just lost to pretty good. ... We have to get back and fix our mistakes first before we worry about who were going to play." Dallas Goedert Jersey .

Ronaldo, who was hit on the head by a cigarette lighter at halftime, converted a pair of early penalties at the Vicente Calderon to put the match beyond Atleticos reach. Atletico beat Madrid at its Santiago Bernabeu Stadium to lift the trophy last season, but exits the domestic cup competition with doubts about its surprise Spanish league aspirations. Madrid will face either Barcelona or Real Sociedad in the April 19th final, with Barcelona leading 2-0 going into the second leg at San Sebastian. "Its the least important competition of our season but a final is always something nice for the team," Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said. Already trailing 3-0, Atletico was also missing strikers Diego Costa and David Villa plus goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and defender Filipe Luis for Tuesdays second leg match. Despite Atletico coach Diego Simeones promises of a rally, the hosts were effectively out of the competition just seven minutes into the game when the inexperienced Javier Manquillo shoved Ronaldo from behind inside the area to set up the opening spot kick. Ronaldo blasted his shot into the left side of net, past the diving Daniel Aranzubia, to end a three-game goal drought. Raul Garcia, who was moved up from midfield to striker because off the absences, saw his shot come off the post just moments before Madrid doubled its advantage.dddddddddddd "The first leg was very important, of course, and the two penalties also," Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas said. "They took some of their bite away." Atletico defender Emiliano Insua slid into Gareth Bale to set up the second penalty after 16 minutes, with Ronaldo beating Aranzubia to the same side but along the ground for his 34th goal of the season. There was little drama beyond that apart from the yellow lighter that struck Ronaldo as he left for the dugout at halftime, which could lead to a fine or sanction for Atletico. "Those two quick goals changed the face of the game," Atletico midfielder Jose Sousa said. Manquillo was taken to hospital after he came down awkwardly on his neck just before halftime. Casillas extended his run to 863 minutes without conceding, a run stretching back to November in the Champions League and Copa del Rey. Madrid has now gone 24 matches unbeaten, but it wont have Ronaldo back in its lineup until its Champions League match at Schalke on Feb. 26. He will miss the next two league games as he completes a three-match ban. A third loss in a week has dented Atleticos season as the surprise La Liga challengers have been undone by injuries and fatigue from a mounting schedule. Madrid beat Barcelona 1-0 in extra-time to win the Copa del Rey in 2011.
