Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart practiced for the second straight day, and teammate Deangelo Williams said he thought Stewart was 100%.
“If he's out on the field and he's carrying the ball and picking up 20 or 30 yards or five or six yards, I think he's healthy.” Williams said.
“At this level, I heard a quote, I can't remember who said it, ‘The first game you're 100%, and after that you try to be as close to 100% as you can throughout the season. Nobody's a total 100% after the first game.”
Asked if he was worried when Stewart barely practiced in the offseason, Williams shook his head: “No, I wasn't because he really didn't do anything last year during training camp or the offseason. So, it wasn't a surprise for me. I just knew he'd be ready for the season. He always is.”
