Panthers | Coach optimistic about Jonathan Stewart

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) is on schedule in his rehab from offseason ankle surgery and sounded optimistic about the possibility of Stewart being ready for Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart has not been able to practice since training camp started because he had surgery on both of his ankles this offseason. His status for the start of the season is uncertain and likely will have to share carries with DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert when he is ready to play. Stewart should be considered as a flex option in leagues.
