  • 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.

  • Stewart rushed 11 times for 21 yards and lost two fumbles in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Falcons. Stewart's day got off to a rough start, as the veteran coughed the ball up in Falcons territory on back-to-back drives during the first quarter. With those miscues being uncharacteristic of the 10-year vet, Stewart still was handed double-digit carries, as has been the case all but once this season. Despite that workload, however, Stewart has now failed to top 50 rushing yards in five straight games. In contrast, rookie Christian McCaffrey was given a career-high 15 totes Sunday, resulting in 66 yards and a score. As a result, it wouldn't be surprising if Stewart is relied on less going forward.

  • Stewart (toe) practiced in full Thursday, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports. For four weeks running, the Panthers have included Stewart on the injury report, but he hasn't logged anything less than a limited practice at this point. With his health not in question again, he's poised to act as the Panthers' primary running back, which has afforded him 13.8 carries per game this season. If the trade of Kelvin Benjamin spurs the offense to throw downfield more often, Stewart may actually have more room to operate moving forward.

  • Panthers' Jonathan Stewart: Limited Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Stewart (toe) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports. A toe injury is impacting Stewart's practice reps for a second consecutive week, but the regimen is in place to keep the veteran running back as fresh as possible for the bulk of the season. On Sunday in Tampa Bay, Stewart reached the end zone for the first time since Week 1, with the touchdown marking his first on the ground since the 2016 season finale. Assuming he reaches the weekend unscathed, Stewart will take on a Falcons defense that has given up 4.2 yards per carry and five total touchdowns to running backs through seven games.

  • Stewart rushed 11 times for 34 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 17-3 win over the Buccaneers. Stewart opened the scoring with a one-yard leap over a goal-line pile during the first quarter. That play marked Stewart's first rushing touchdown of the season, and his first end-zone trip since his receiving score in Week 1. Although the veteran, who was limited during the practice week due to a lower-body issue, still hasn't topped 50 yards since Week 4, his trip to paydirt Sunday at least serves as a positive development.
