Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (hamstring, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 3. Stewart is going to miss this week, maybe longer. When he was sidelined for a three-game stretch late in the season, Cameron Artis-Payne turned 38 total touches into 210 yards and a touchdown. He averaged 4.60 YPC during that span and even though he’s been inactive the first two weeks (thanks to not having a role on special teams), he’ll most likely step into a lead back role with Stewart out for Week 3. Ron Rivera basically confirmed this earlier in the week by calling Fozzy Whittaker a change of pace back. Whittaker had a nice Week 2 and will be involved in the game plan.
