Jonathan Stewart is finally healthy

"Very excited about having Jonathan on the field," coach Ron Rivera said after Wednesday's workout. "He's healthy again. He's moving the way we need him to move. I like what we're getting out of him.
"Even Jonathan is saying this is the first time he's been healthy [in a while]. So that's a good thing."
Rivera said Stewart doesn't need to be a 1,000-yard rusher to be effective. He just needs Stewart to be more effective than he was a year ago when he spent the first seven games on the physically unable to perform list and then missed the last three games after suffering a knee injury at New Orleans.
"We need to be able to rush for 100 yards a game like we did last year," Rivera said. "That's one of the things that really helped us out [last season]. We ran the ball well, we controlled the clock, we controlled the tempo of the game."

Steve Smith IN, Jonathan Stewart OUT for Panthers

Jonathan Stewart has torn MCL

The Panthers are apparently holding out hope Stewart will return in Week 17, but that's probably a stretch. For now, the RB situation in Carolina looks a little clearer from a fantasy perspective as DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert will now carry the load, most likely the rest of the way.
