Stewart suffered a pulled hamstring before the start of training camp and will miss 2-4 weeks while recovering from the injury. It looks like a 4-6 week injury for Stewart, which would not be a major concern in July for most players, but Stewart's length injury history makes this more troubling for him. The team did keep him on the active roster, which is a sign of optimism that he will be ready for preseason, and certainly the start of the regular season.


Jonathan Stewart spent most of 2013 sidelined due to ankle and knee woes, appearing in just six contests to post 48/180/0 rushing and 7/44/0 receiving for the regular season. This, after a frustrating 2012 campaign in which he played in nine games producing 93/336/1 rushing and 17/157/1 receiving. Stewart tore his MCL during week 14 last season and missed the fantasy playoffs - he is expected to be fully recovered in time for training camp and reports on May 5 indicated that Stewart is practicing yoga and has initiated a stretching routine to try and stay healthier during the 2014 season. However, training camp started with Stewart again suffering an injury - now he has a pulled hamstring, and is expected to miss two-to-four weeks. He may also miss at least the first preseason game - as we saw last year with Steven Jackson in Atlanta, soft tissue injuries can be nagging issues and Stewart isn't known as a 'fast healer'. Fantasy owners will want to monitor his progress recovering from the hamstring injury as camp progresses. (July 28)

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart update (Sat Jul 26, 03:33 PM) - Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) will miss two to four weeks with a hamstring injury. It was originally reported that Stewart would only miss one to two weeks.

Our View: But he's not concerned, right? Stewart is constantly banged up, and it's difficult to trust him on your fantasy team. We'll see if he can (finally) stay healthy and help out as a RB5 in 2014.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart optimistic (Sat Jul 26, 03:24 PM) - Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) said he's not too concerned about his hamstring injury. Stewart said recovering from his hamstring injury will be easier than recovering from his previous ankle injuries.

Our View: Stewart isn't concerned, but fantasy owners are. His current ADP is RB49 (11.11) in 12-team PPR leagues. Talent has never been a question with Stewart, but injuries have held him back almost every year of his pro career.

Panthers | More on Jonathan Stewart (Thu Jul 24, 03:22 PM) - Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) 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.

Our View: Talent has never been a question with Stewart. However, staying healthy has been a big problem for the veteran back. In the meantime, we'll see the Panthers lean on DeAngelo Williams in camp. Stewart's absence will give a bigger opportunity to guys like Kenjon Barner and rookie Tyler Gaffney.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart dealing with hamstring issue (Thu Jul 24, 12:50 PM) - Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) is dealing with a hamstring injury, but the team will leave him on the active roster heading into training camp.

Our View: That Stewart is not being placed on the PUP or NFI list is somewhat positive because it means the Panthers don't expect to be without him for too long, but the fact that this happened over a week ago and Stewart is projected to be out for another week or two according to some sources means that this is a 2-4 week injury. We would be concerned about any player with a non-trivial hamstring injury at this time of year. When it's Stewart, his seemingly discount price of a pick in the 13th round or later is looking less attractive. Don't overreact and go after DeAngelo Williams on this news, either, he was little help to fantasy teams despite Stewart missing much of 2013.
