2014 Week 2 vs DET (15 / 37 / 1 rush, 1 / 1 / 22 / 0 rec)
Although the box score will not reflect it, Jonathan Stewart played like a bull in a china shop against the Lions, getting stronger as the game progressed. It was tough sledding against the Detroit front seven throughout, but Stewart consistently powered through tacklers and fought for extra yardage. On an early screen pass, Stewart seemed to be bottled up but showed great second effort to break a pair of tackles and tack on an extra five yards. Stewart got the bulk of the work with backfield mate DeAngelo Williams missing out due to injury and made his case for more work going forward with a no-nonsense performance. Stewart bulled into the end zone for a deserved touchdown in the fourth quarter, refusing to go down on first contact as he weaved his way to pay dirt with a smooth spin move.
2014 Week 3 vs PIT (5 / 31 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 19 / 0 rec)
Jonathan Stewart looked spry and decisive in the few touches he received in this one-sided contest, but the lack of commitment to the ground game - combined with a poor display by the Panthers offensive line - put paid to any chance Stewart had of putting together a 100-yard game. Stewart hobbled off the field with a knee injury and is set to undergo an MRI today to determine the extent. The former Oregon back got into a rhythm early with a screen pass, rumbling along the sideline for 10 yards. Stewart pops from time to time with his trademark blend of power and pace, but he lacks the kind of killer instinct he used to possess. The Steelers defense stymied Stewart's progress on more than one occasion as they played good fundamentals and defeated the blocks of the Panthers line, often with ease. The game script did not allow Carolina to stay patient with the ground game ultimately, and Stewart's future with the franchise may once again be in doubt if his latest injury is serious.
Latest NewsPanthers | Jonathan Stewart limited Wednesday (Wed Oct 1, 04:26 PM) - Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 1. link to story Panthers | Jonathan Stewart to practice (Wed Oct 1, 12:55 PM) - Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) is in pads Wednesday, Oct. 1, and will participate in practice. Our View: Stewart might get back on the field this week, but he won't be a sure bet to be effective. This could be enough to pick him up in very deep leagues, but don't get too excited about Stewart's prospects this weekend.
link to story Panthers | DeAngelo Williams out (Wed Oct 1, 10:14 AM) - Updating an earlier report, Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) is out for Week 5, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Our View: Here we go with the Darrin Reaves era! Ugh, there are reports that Jonathan Stewart may return to action this week. We're just avoiding the Panthers RB situation right now even against a Bears defense that ranks 20th against the run and allows 122.5 rushing yards per game.
link to story Panthers | Jonathan Stewart could play (Wed Oct 1, 10:12 AM) - Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) has a chance to play in Week 5, as head coach Ron Rivera said he's hopeful Stewart can return this week. Our View: "Could" and "Hope" are two words we don't want to associate with fantasy starters. Stewart coming back from a knee injury is not someone we can start with confidence--even if he does play against the Bears defense. It looks like Darrin Reaves is going to be the lead back for the Panthers this week.
link to story Panthers | Week 4 Inactives (Sun Sep 28, 11:37 AM) - The Carolina Panthers have declared OG Andrew Norwell, TE Brandon D. Williams, RB Fozzy Whittaker, QB Joe Webb, RB Jonathan Stewart, LB Thomas Davis, SS Tre Boston inactive for Week 4. More News
