Stewart recorded 10 tackles, one tackle for a loss and an interception in Sunday's 48-37 wild-card win over Pittsburgh.

Stewart's pick halted a drive that reached the red zone and broke the momentum Tennessee had built in its comeback effort. The third-year cornerback played a season-high 39 snaps (54 percent), stepping in as the nickel back while Kevin Johnson took over at corner for the injured Denzel Ward (calf).
Stewart (hamstring) is active Week 1 against Baltimore.
Stewart was limited in practice all week and entered the opener with a "questionable" designation, but it looks like he's healthy enough to suit up for the divisional matchup. Per Tony Grossi of ESPN, Stewart should see time at nickelback with Kevin Johnson (abdomen) inactive.
Stewart (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.
Stewart has been managing a hamstring injury since late August. With Greedy Williams (shoulder) and Kevin Johnson (abdomen) already ruled out for Week 1, Stewart could be in line for an increased depth role at cornerback if he's able to suit up.
Stewart (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Stewart has been dealing with a hamstring issue since late August, so it's notable to see him back at practice even if the extent of his participation can't yet be confirmed. With Greedy Williams (shoulder) and Kevin Johnson (abdomen) both also managing injuries, Stewart could have an opportunity for increased snaps Week 1 against Baltimore if he's able to get fully healthy.
Stewart (hamstring) didn't practice Monday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Stewart is in the midst of a fresh start with the Browns after the 2018 second-round pick was cut by Tampa Bay in early August, but now he'll need to overcome another injury -- a common occurrence for the cornerback. The Browns' cornerback corps is littered with injuries, as Greedy Williams (shoulder), Kevin Johnson (abdomen) and Terrance Mitchell (knee) are all sidelined right now, so a quick return to practice could allow Stewart to log some first-team reps.
The Browns claimed Stewart off waivers Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Selected by the Buccaneers in the second round of the 2018 draft, Stewart suffered through injuries and ineffectiveness during two seasons with the team. Overall, he totaled 68 tackles and five passes defended in 21 appearances. Tampa Bay recently cut Stewart, allowing him to find a new home in Cleveland. He'll provide depth for a cornerback group led by Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams.
The Buccaneers waived Stewart on Thursday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Stewart joined the Buccaneers in 2018 as a second-round pick, but he failed to transform into a reliable member of the secondary over two years with the team. Having lost the starting nickel job in 2019 and even been a late scratch toward the end of the season, the writing was on the wall that Stewart had fallen out of favor in Tampa Bay. Still, it's somewhat surprising to see that the team went so far as to cut the 24-year-old, rather than simply relegate him to a depth role.
Stewart logged 35 tackles (28 solo) and two defensed passes across 10 games during the 2019 season.
Through 21 career games, Stewart has yet to log a turnover, but he once again served as a steady, albeit unspectacular, member of the Buccaneers' secondary rotation. The 2018 second-round pick dealt with a knee sprain that cost him three games, and he also was a healthy scratch on three other occasions. As his final line indicates, Stewart had next to no IDP value in 2019, and he may have a battle on his hands to hold onto a roster spot next season as a result of his modest first pair of campaigns.

Stewart (knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
Stewart missed the last three games due to the right knee sprain, but his return to practice may give him a chance to suit up Week 14. Jamel Dean should continue working as the nickel cornerback if Stewart is unable to play.

Stewart has missed two consecutive contests due to a sprained right knee, and he appears to be trending in the wrong direction for Sunday's game in Jacksonville.

Stewart is nursing a sprained right knee suffered during Week 10's win over the Cardinals. His injury carries an expected recovery timetable of at least a couple weeks, so it doesn't come as much of a surprise that he won't suit up Week 11. As long as Stewart is unable to go, expect Sean Murphy-Bunting, Jamel Dean and Ryan Smith to see expanded depth roles. With starting cornerback Carlton Davis (hip) still getting back to full health, Stewart's injury has come at a particularly inopportune time.
Stewart has a sprained right knee and could miss a couple weeks, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
Stewart suffered this injury during this past Sunday's win over the Cardinals. While there isn't an official timeline for Stewart's return, he's considered a longshot for Sunday's game against the Saints. The timing of his injury is unfortunate, as the 2018 second-round pick may have started Sunday since Vernon Hargreaves was waived Tuesday and Carlton Davis (hip) is still on the mend. If Davis is unable to go, Sean Murphy-Bunting, Jamel Dean and Ryan Smith are expected to round out the team's cornerback corps.
Stewart (knee) registered eight tackles (six solo) in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.
Stewart recorded his stat line over the course of only 52 snaps, with 10 of those being on special teams, as he was forced from Sunday's game with a knee injury and did not return. With Vernon Hargreaves being waived Tuesday, Stewart could be in line for a larger role on defense given that his knee injury is not serious.
