Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart looks refreshed, revitalized and ready to go. He made a spin move the second day of camp that was as good as any in his career, one that should ease any worries about the foot injury he suffered in the Super Bowl.
"This is my ninth year. I feel like it's my fifth year," Stewart said Wednesday as the Panthers resumed practice after a day off.
Coach Ron Rivera wants to keep Stewart fresh during the season by reducing his carries. With the improvement of second-year running backs Cameron Artis-Payne and Brandon Wegher, and the growth of Fozzy Whittaker, Rivera believes that is possible, the story said. Stew rushed a career-high 242 times last year, but his carries in camp have been limited.
