    Panthers' Jonathan Stewart: Goes for 77 total yards Thursday

    Stewart amassed 68 yards on 21 carries and reeled in three catches for nine yards in Thursday's 33-14 win over the Cowboys. Stewart's volume in the running game has been about as it consistent as it gets in the league, as he finished with between 20 and 24 carries for the seventh consecutive week. However, his 3.2 yards per carry went down as his second-lowest mark of the season, and he was denied a touchdown in both of the Panthers' red zone opportunities. While Thursday's effort was a rather pedestrian one by Stewart's standards, he's still a weekly must-play in just about any league due to his steady workload.

    Panthers' Jonathan Stewart: Productive in win over Redskins

    Stewart carried 21 times for 102 yards in Sunday's game against the Redskins. He also turned his only target into a 12-yard touchdown reception in the blowout win. The Panthers utilized the veteran to help grind down the clock after jumping out to a large lead, and he responded with his second 100-yard game of the season. Stewart also caught his first touchdown pass of the season, and he has now found the end zone five times in his last six games after failing to do so in the first four. Stewart is the unquestioned workhorse out of the Panthers backfield, and he will face a Cowboys defense on Thanksgiving that has been very susceptible to opposing running backs this season.

    Panthers' Jonathan Stewart: Active Sunday

    Stewart (ankle) is active Sunday against the Titans. Stewart was limited Wednesday and Thursday before putting in a full showing Friday, so he'll slot into his regular starting spot with the hope of getting some more touches near the goal line ahead of quarterback Cam Newton, who leads the team with five carries inside the five-yard line.

    Panthers' Jonathan Stewart: Limited again Thursday

    Stewart was limited at Thursday's practice, Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer reports. Afterward, head coach Ron Rivera said that Stewart's ankle injury is "a little nagging," but going forward, he'll be "fine." Coming off four consecutive games with 20-plus carries, the Panthers seem to be exercising caution with their unquestioned No. 1 back to ensure that Stewart's workload isn't too steep. During the aforementioned run, he's totaled 351 rushing yards at a 4.0 YPC clip, while mixing in three touchdowns, so owners would do themselves a favor by keeping an eye on his Week 10 availability.

    Panthers' Jonathan Stewart: Tough sledding versus Green Bay

    Stewart gained just 66 yards on 20 carries and added another two yards on his lone reception of the game. J-Stew found the sledding tough against a strong Packers defense, as his yardage output was his lowest since Week 4. Stewart continues to serve as a workhorse out of the backfield for Carolina, despite his lack of efficiency, and he has now received 20 carries or more in four consecutive outings. A matchup versus a stout Titans front awaits in Week 10, but Stewart's usage should still give him a shot at a productive day.

    Panthers' Jonathan Stewart: Finds pay dirt versus Colts

    Stewart rushed 24 times for 82 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's victory over the Colts. Stewart was given 24 carries for the second straight week in light of the extremely wet playing conditions in Carolina on Monday night, and although his average of 3.4 yards per carry wasn't very impressive, Stewart's final totals still helped fantasy owners. In fact, his 84 rushing yards marked his second-highest total of this season, trailing only last week's 125 yards, and Stewart also found the end zone with a powerful fourth-down plunge Monday. Through seven games, Stewart has rushed for 505 yards and three touchdowns, and his next matchup comes against a Packers defense that has often struggled to stop the run in recent seasons.

    Panthers' Jonathan Stewart: Scores two touchdowns

    Stewart had 20 carries for a season-high 78 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 27-23 win at Seattle. He caught his lone target for eight yards. Stewart had a long run of just 11 yards, but constantly broke tackles against a rugged defense. It's been a quiet season thus far for Stewart, who hadn't scored a touchdown before Sunday, so perhaps his solid game will get him going. He and the Panthers will be at home next week against the Eagles.
