  • Stewart rushed 16 times for 103 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Vikings. Stewart started the practice week with foot and ankle soreness, but those issues didn't stop him from turning back the clock to produce a vintage performance Sunday. The 30-year-old set it off with a 60-yard touchdown on the Panthers' first offensive drive, marking his longest run in over three years, then quickly followed with a more common one-yard plunge on Carolina's next series. After the Vikings tied the game in the fourth quarter, Stewart put an exclamation point on his day by scoring another one-yarder to clinch victory with under two minutes remaining. Overall, Stewart not only topped 100 rushing yards for just the second time this season, but he also scored three rushing touchdowns for the first time in 129 career regular-season appearances. While that evidences the extent of Stewart's improbable outburst -- which came against one of the league's elite defenses, no less -- Stewart's fantasy owners can take added satisfaction knowing he's now found the end zone in three straight outings.

  • Stewart isn't practicing Wednesday due to foot and ankle injuries, David Newton of reports. Stewart took 11 carries for 45 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-21 loss to the Saints, with his final touch of the day coming on the second snap after halftime. He was nicked up by the lower-body injury along the way, but his lack of playing time in the second half presumably had more to do with game context, as the Panthers relied on pass-catching threat Christian McCaffrey out of the backfield while trying to erase a multi-score deficit. Even if the ankle injury isn't significant, Stewart could see similarly limited usage against a 10-2 Minnesota team that surrenders only 3.5 yards per carry and 77.7 rushing yards per game.

  • Panthers' Jonathan Stewart: Scores short TD

    Stewart took 11 carries for 45 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-21 loss to the Saints. Stewart got off to a fast start and scored from two yards out on the opening drive, but he went quiet in the second half when the Panthers were forced to play from behind. With just six catches all season and a lowly mark of 3.2 yards per carry, Stewart largely depends on goal-line touchdowns for his production. A Week 14 matchup with the Minnesota defense is sub-optimal for his role.

  • Panthers' Jonathan Stewart: Scores in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Stewart ran for 26 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries in Sunday's 35-27 win over the Jets. Stewart's two-yard plunge in the third quarter gave Carolina a lead and snapped a two-game scoreless streak. The veteran back has had 15 or more touches in back-to-back games for the first time since Weeks 1 and 2, but it's fair to wonder when Carolina will turn the keys over to rookie Christian McCaffrey. Stewart has more games with under two yards per carry (four) this season than games with four or more yards per carry (three).

  • Panthers' Jonathan Stewart: Tops 100-yard mark
    By RotoWire Staff

    Stewart rushed 17 times for 110 yards in Monday night's 45-21 win over the Dolphins. Stewart followed last week's uncharacteristic, two-fumble outing by having his best performance of the season. Prior to Monday, the veteran hadn't topped 50 yards since Week 4, and had totaled just 120 yards in five games since then. Although backups Christian McCaffrey and Cameron Artis-Payne both rushed for touchdowns, Stewart should still be rather satisfied with his latest showing, which will see him enter Carolina's bye week on a high note.
