Panthers' Jonathan Stewart: Playing Thursday

Stewart (ankle) wasn't given a designation for Thursday's game versus the Eagles, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

In past weeks, Stewart was held out of practice as a veteran rest day of sorts, but the running back actually was held out of Monday's session due to an ankle injury. He progressed from that absence to a full practice Wednesday, paving the way to an active status on a short week. He'll thus face an Eagles defense that has allowed 93.4 yards from scrimmage per game and four touchdowns to running backs this season.
