Panthers | Jonathan Stewart unlikely to play in Week 1

The Carolina Panthers are optimistic that RB Jonathan Stewart (ankles) will be ready for the regular season opener, but ESPN's Adam Schefter believes it's probably not realistic.

Fantasy Tip: The Panthers could place Stewart on the PUP and risk losing him for at least six weeks of the season. DeAngelo Williams will be the starting running back for any games Stewart misses, followed by rookie Kenjon Barner. It isn't wise to draft J-Stew until we have a clearer picture of whether he'll be ready for Week 1.
