Panthers | Jonathan Stewart wants to practice before returning

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) said he wants to practice for more than a week before returning to the field. He said he is managing the pain and soreness in his ankle but still has his speed and explosiveness. Stewart said he plans to play at some point this season.
It appears DeAngelo Williams has a hold on the starting running back job, so Stewart may return as a backup. Owners should look at Stewart as a flex option or as a handcuff to Williams. Stewart could also be used as depth at running back for some fantasy owners.
