Jonathan Stewart is finally healthy

ESPN - [Full Article]

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart is healthy now, as healthy as he's been since the 2011 season.

"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."

Fantasy Impact:

Stewart is in a timeshare with DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert, so his fantasy value is pretty low at this point in the offseason. But he's a talented runner and could work his way into RB3/flex status if he stays healthy and gets 8-12 touches per game.

Jonathan Stewart has torn MCL
Monday, December 9, 2013, 9:54am

Joe Person on Twitter - [Full Article]

Panthers spokesman says RB Jonathan Stewart did tear his MCL.

Fantasy Impact:

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.

Fantasy Impact:

If he does return, the Panthers go back to the dreaded three-headed RB monster of Williams, Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert.
