Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart has been diagnosed with a torn MCL, a team spokesman told The Charlotte Observer. Coach Ron Rivera said prior to this announcement he was hopeful Stewart would play again this season, but the new diagnosis could change Stewart's status.
Redskins tight end Jordan Reed is inactive for a third straight game because of a concussion Week 14 against the Chiefs. Reed tried to return last week but had a headache before the game. He was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report.
