Looking Like Jonathan Stewart Will Be Inactive For Thursday’s Game

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera mentioned that Jonathan Stewart‘s chances of playing in Thursday’s game against the Giants has been impacted by the short week of preparation.

“It’s one those things where if we’re playing on Sunday, he’s got a much, much better chance than he does if we’re playing on Thursday,” Rivera said, via the Charlotte Observer. “He came out (Wednesday) and it was still a little stiff, a little bit sore. They’re going to continue to work it out and see how he is.

Stewart is dealing with a toe/ankle injury in recent weeks and has been listed as questionable. DeAngelo Williams could be in for decent workload tomorrow, but that’s what we thought in Week 1 and it didn’t quite go according to plan.
