Darian Stewart (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's Super Bowl against the Panthers, Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post reports.
In advance of the season-ending tilt, Stewart was likely the most iffy of the Denver Broncos ' injured, but with two weeks to rest, he won't be denied by the sprained MCL sustained in the AFC championship game. While his tackle totals were modest from game to game, he was still involved in five turnovers this season (three fumbles and two interceptions).
After failing to practice last week, Stewart is now in line to fulfill expectations and suit up in Sunday's season-defining tilt. On the season (including playoffs), he racked up 71 tackles (53 solo), two interceptions, two fumble recoveries, and one forced fumble in 17 games.
Darian Stewart (knee) practiced fully Thursday, Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports.
Stewart appears poised to brush off a sprained MCL suffered in the AFC championship game, though Friday's injury report will likely provide final passage to availability in Super Bowl 50.
Darian Stewart (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice, Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports.
Stewart received a respite from drills last week due to a sprained MCL, which he sustained during the AFC championship game. Building up practice reps is likely on the docket this week, but everyone associated with the Denver Broncos expects the free safety to take the field in Super Bowl 50.
Coach Gary Kubiak expects
The extended resting period before the Super Bowl has afforded Stewart much-needed time off the field, but there hasn't been much concern for him actually sitting out the big game with his sprained MCL. Barring something unforeseen, the safety will undertake his normal duties against the Panthers on Sunday.
