"He's going to be impact player for us and that's all I care about", said quarterback Cam Newton.

Expect Barkley to either double his carries this week or have backup Wayne Gallman carry more than twice.

However, Stewart suffered a foot injury that landed him on injured reserve this past week.
Osaka survives huge scare to reach China Open semis
