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.
Huddle Up: In somewhat of a surprise, Stewart appears on the team's inactive list after practicing during the week. In the meantime, that means more work for DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera is unsure when RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) will be able to return to game action after he resumes practicing this week. 'We'll have to see,' said Rivera, not ruling out Stewart for Thursday, Oct. 24. 'He had a really good week last week, but again we're going to go through the whole procedure and make sure we're really doing things right with him after each day.' Stewart could be ready by Nov. 3 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: DeAngelo Williams owners are on alert as Stewart's return will obviously cut into his workload. It would seem, though, that's still at least a week or two away.

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) will participate in practice this week but is not sure if Stewart will be able to play Week 8.
Huddle Up: If you have the roster space, Stewart is worth the speculative add. He could cut into DeAngelo Williams' playing time once he starts playing.

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) will not practice this week although he's eligible to be activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list. He said Tuesday, Oct. 15, that he likely needs another couple of weeks before he can return to a game.
Huddle Up: It looks like DeAngelo Williams owners won't have to worry about Stewart for another week or two. If Stewart comes back strong, though, Williams could see his role reduced somewhat.

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said he is not sure if RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) will be able to practice this week. Stewart is currently on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Huddle Up: When he does finally make his return, it will be interesting to see how much they use Stewart. DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert are playing well, but Stewart could cut into their fantasy value.
