Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart and wide receiver Steve Smith are both day-to-day, GM Marty Hurney said.
Stewart sprained his ankle late in the second quarter against the New York Jets on Sunday night. He was carted off the field after hobbling to the sideline, and x-rays after the game were negative. Head coach Ron Rivera said after the game Stewart will not play Thursday against the Pittsburgh Steelers
Smith did not make the trip north with the team, instead staying home to nurse a foot infection that has sidelined him for a week. He will likely not participate Thursday, as well.
