Panther HC Ron Rivera said Jonathan Stewart had a setback with his ankle injury.
It sounds like Stewart is unlikely to suit up this week. DeAngelo Williams will again be the lead back with Mike Tolbert in the mix. The Panthers get a Saints team who has been improving against the run lately. Williams is an unreliable flex play. Last week he managed only 19 rush yards on 10 carries against the Raiders after having a long TD called back early.
