Stewart (foot) is unlikely to play in Thursday's preseason finale, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.
Stewart has struggled to make his presence felt this preseason largely because he hasn't been able to stay on the field. Following a strong showing in July, Stewart has faded from Tampa Bay's radar. Considered a depth cornerback, Stewart will need a bit of luck if he's to survive 53-man roster cuts due to the amount of time he has missed due to the foot injury.
Stewart (foot) is not expected to play in Friday's contest against the Lions, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Stewart injured his foot last week against the Titans and has yet to recover. Given it's the preseason, the team won't force Stewart back earlier than necessary, but he's missing out on valuable reps as he looks to hang on to a roster spot. Look for Mark Myers and Amari Coleman to see some additional snaps with Stewart out.
Stewart injured his foot and is questionable to return to Saturday's preseason game against the Titans.
Stewart, the 2018 second-round pick, has been having a strong camp with a shot at a starting job. Prior to injuring his shoulder Saturday, he had a pair of tackles and forced two fumbles.
Stewart has made several impressive plays in both pass coverage and against the run over the first few practices of camp, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.
The rookie snagged an interception Saturday, which he followed up with an impact play on fellow second-rounder Ronald Jones II in the run game Sunday. Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports that Stewart met Jones in the hole on an inside run drill and dislodged the ball for a fumble, catching the eye of head coach Dirk Koetter. Stewart is "cross-training" at both nickel corner and on the outside, as the Bucs look to shore up a secondary that allowed a league-high 4,169 passing yards in 2017.
