Coach Ron Rivera says there’s “reason for optimism” that Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart will start against the Buccaneers in Week 1.

"We do feel pretty good about Jonathan after hearing the progress I was told today," said Rivera after the team's practice at IMG Academy in Bradenton, where the team has been practicing since the Democratic National Convention is in Charlotte. "There are reasons for optimism, but we'll probably wait until Sunday morning to make the call. But we like his progress, that's why we're optimistic."
