Stewart recorded 52 solo tackles, 11 assisted tackles, five passes defended, and three interceptions in 2017. Stewart ended the year leading the No Fly Zone in interceptions. Stewart was the man over the top in recent seasons with T.J. Ward roaming underneath, but saw a more diversified role with a more coverage-savvy partner in Justin Simmons in 2017. Stewart made some uncharacteristic blown assignments that led to big plays for opponents in 2017 and his age, 29, will make some wonder if Denver should cut bait and look toward a youth movement at safety with Simmons, Will Parks, and Jamal Carter. The savings probably wouldn't match the loss in productivity as Stewart has showed himself to be a consistent cog in Denver's defense.
Stewart (thigh) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports. Stewart was limited in practice Wednesday so his full participation Thursday is a reassuring sign for Denver. Barring any major setbacks, the veteran safety should resume his starting role -- as he's been playing upwards of 60 snaps a contest the past couple of weeks.
Stewart (groin) will start Sunday against the Cowboys, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports. Stewart tweaked his groin in the season opener and was limited in practice leading up to this game.

Stewart (groin) is expected to play Sunday against the Cowboys, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Stewart is officially listed as questionable after being limited in practice Thursday and Friday, and his availability against a solid Cowboys passing attack will be helpful.
Stewart (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Stewart was a limited practice participant on Thursday and Friday, and the fact that he was on the field is a good sign for his return. The Broncos' starting free safety made six tackles (five solo) in the season opener, but if he can't play Sunday, expect to see Will Parks take his place.
