Stewart caught his lone target but didn't gain any yards during Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.
Stewart caught two passes back in Week 1 and Sunday's reception was just his third since. Fellow rookie Chad Hansen finally caught his first passes as a pro Sunday, and while both players should get more reps in light of Jeremy Kerley's four-game suspension, there is fairly minimal fantasy upside given the other options available to quarterback Josh McCown.
Stewart (groin) is active for Sunday's Week 10 tilt against the Buccaneers.
The rookie has apparently sufficiently overcome the groin injury that he sustained in Thursday's practice to take a crack at the Buccaneers' vulnerable secondary Sunday. Stewart could see some extra snaps this week with Jeremy Kerley beginning his four-game suspension.
Stewart (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Per the report, Stewart suffered a groin injury at practice Thursday, with his situation further taxing the Jets' Week 10 wideout corps, which is also without Jeremy Kerley (suspension).
Coach Todd Bowles said Monday that Stewart will see an increased role while Jeremy Kerley serves a four-game suspension, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.
The rookie out of Alabama has only caught four balls for 36 yards so far this season, but with one of the Jets' top pass catchers now suspended, Stewart may get some extra looks. Whether it's enough action on the field to warrant fantasy value for Stewart is yet to be seen, but he should at least the opportunity this Sunday to showcase his talent.
Stewart (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons.
Stewart will be in street clothes for the first time this season in a surprising choice from coach Todd Bowles, given that the rookie had been serving as the Jets' kickoff returner. While Stewart had filled a critical role on special teams, his involvement on offense has waned since he logged 38 offensive snaps Week 1 against the Bills. In the subsequent six contests, Stewart has hauled in only two of three targets for 26 yards and has gained 18 yards on three carries.
