Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) donned full pads and is participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 15.
Huddle Up: Stewart is a good bet to return this week after missing the last 3 games and supplant the Darrin Reaves-Fozzy Whittaker-Chris Ogbonnaya contingent as the Panthers' No. 1 RB option.

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) is expected to participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 15, according to head coach Ron Rivera.
Huddle Up: Stewart would move into flex consideration if he plays this week. DeAngelo Williams is still out and the Panthers have little else at running back right now. Stewart will get most of the touches as soon as he's healthy.

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) could miss a month due to his sprained knee, in the opinion of beat writer Joseph Person.
Huddle Up: Stewart is not exactly an iron man, and at this juncture he's burned just about every bridge among fantasy owners. The key will be whether or not DeAngelo Williams is healthy enough to take advantage of the opportunity to get the bulk of the carries in Carolina.

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) could very well miss Week 4 with a severely sprained right knee. Stewart will not practice until Friday, Sept. 26 this week, which usually means a player isn't expected to play the following game.
Huddle Up: It looks like Stewart has suffered another multi-week injury. The days of Stewart being a trusted fantasy player have passed. He simply can't stay on the field anymore.

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) was diagnosed with a right knee contusion. He did not return to the game.
Huddle Up: Shocking, really, that the über-brittle Stewart would suffer yet another injury in a game where he didn't have to fight DeAngelo Williams for touches. No word on if this latest malady will sideline him for any significant length of time.

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) was inactive for the preseason opener against the Buffalo Bills Friday, Aug. 8.
Huddle Up: It feels like a lifetime ago since Stewart has been a fantasy factor. He still isn't practicing and remains week-to-week. Stewart currently has an ADP of Round 13 but there's no guarantee that he's going to play much this season considering he just began to run in a straight line this week.

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart is expected to miss one-to-two weeks as he recovers from a hamstring injury. Stewart will not be placed on the team's Physically Unable to Perform list.

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart showed great burst every time he touched the ball during offseason workouts.
Huddle Up: Stewart hasn't played a full season since 2011 and has only 516 rushing yards and 1 TD since then while missing 17 games. Counting on any kind of reliable fantasy production out of the back is a reach and a half.

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) has been declared inactive for the Sunday's Divisional Round playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) practiced in full Thursday, Jan. 9.
Huddle Up: Just when you're starting to feel safe rolling with DeAngelo Williams, the in-again, out-again Stewart reappears in the Panthers' backfield picture. Expect Stewart to play in Sunday's wild-card game after missing the final 3 contests of the regular season.

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) is not practicing Thursday, Jan. 2.
Huddle Up: Stewart, who missed the first 7 and final 3 games of the Panthers' regular season, finished the year with a career-low 55 touches in 6 games. The 2-week break before the Panthers' first playoff game gives him an opportunity to return but don't expect much out of him even if he does.

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) will be doubtful for the team's Week 17 game, according to head coach Ron Rivera.
Huddle Up: Stewart looks like a good bet to miss his third straight game, and that's continued good news for DeAngelo Williams' fantasy owners who have seen their man score in double-digit points in each of the last 2 games.

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) did not practice Friday, Dec. 20, and has been ruled out for Week 16.

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) will not play Week 16. Rivera would not say if Stewart will be able to play Week 17.

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) is not practicing Wednesday, Dec. 18, and head coach Ron Rivera said the earliest Stewart will return is Week 17 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: This is good for DeAngelo Williams, who should get a bigger workload with Stewart out.
Posted: 12/13/2013 11:52pm et
Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) likely will not return to the lineup before the team's Week 17 game.
Huddle Up: Stewart hasn't been a fantasy factor all season and that won't change over the next couple of weeks. This has been a lost season for the former first-round pick.

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) will miss at least two weeks with a torn medial collateral ligament in his right knee.
Huddle Up: Two weeks for a torn MCL? Seems overly optimistic for the oft-injured Stewart. At minimum his fantasy season is over, but maybe the Panthers get him back for the NFL playoffs.

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) is believed to have suffered a serious knee injury in Week 14. He'll have an MRI Monday, Dec. 9.
Huddle Up: Just the latest in a long series of injuries that have derailed (and continue to derail) Stewart's NFL career. We'll await word on the MRI before hitting the panic button.

The Carolina Panthers have activated RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) from the Physically Unable to Perform list and have added him to the active roster. The team also waived RB Armond Smith.
Huddle Up: Stewart is expected to see roughly 8-10 touches this week against Atlanta. He's not worth starting yet but Stewart's role could grow if he stays healthy, making him a viable flex play in the coming weeks.

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) is participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 30. He is still on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Huddle Up: This could actually be important with DeAngelo Williams missing practice with a quad issue. Keep an eye on both this week.

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said the team is targeting Week 9 for when RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) will return to the field. Stewart will travel with the team for their Week 8 game but will not play.
Huddle Up: One more week before Stewart mucks things up for DeAngelo Williams. He is certainly worth a speculative add if you need help at running back.
