Panthers | Jonathan Stewart has surgery

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) said he underwent arthroscopic surgery Friday, Jan. 11, on his left ankle.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart was limited to just nine games this season and had career lows in rushing yards (336), yards-per-carry average (3.6) and rushing touchdowns (one). Stewart should be 100 percent come next season; however, it remains to be seen what the team's offense will look like in 2013. Former offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski is now the head coach in Cleveland, and the team also fired running backs coach John Settle. The Panthers will likely go back to more of a power-running scheme, with backs DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert also on the roster (for now).
