Jonathan Stewart won't play Week 17

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Carolina Panthers will try to wrap up home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs in Sunday's regular-season finale against Tampa Bay without starting running back Jonathan Stewart.

Stewart was ruled out on Friday with a sprained foot that sidelined him the past two games.

The Panthers (14-1) also will be without backup running back Fozzy Whittaker and possibly wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr., who is listed as doubtful.

Fantasy Impact: 

Mike Tolbert likely will get the start at running back, but look for rookie Cameron Artis-Payne to carry a heavier load, the story said. Artis-Payne is more of an every-down back. He has rushed for 108 yards on 19 carries the past two weeks.
