CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Carnell ``Cadillac'' Williams was carted off the field with a right knee injury in the first quarter of Sunday's game against Carolina.
The Bucs also lost left tackle Luke Petitgout for the game to a right knee injury early in the second quarter.
Williams had just broken through the right side for an 18-yard gain when he was hit by safety Chris Harris near the Panthers' sideline. The hit forced Williams backward as his right leg bent under him awkwardly, and Williams immediately clutched the knee as he lay on the ground after the play.
Panthers wideout Steve Smith, standing a short distance from Williams, immediately started motioning for medical personnel. The entire Tampa Bay team eventually came off the sideline to join Panthers players around the cart as Williams left the field and was ruled out for the game.
Petitgout was hurt when defensive tackle Kris Jenkins fell into his leg at the line. He eventually limped off the field, but the team said he would not return.
