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.

link to story Panthers | Jonathan Stewart sits (Thu Sep 25, 12:25 PM) - Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) is not participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 25. Our View: We're expecting DeAngelo Williams aka Big Money D aka The Only RB Standing to get the start and most of the carries unless his legs fall off which, given the state of the Carolina backfield, isn't that farfetched. We see Williams as a good RB3 assuming the hamstring doesn't catch on fire.
