Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart still dealing with foot pain

Charlotte Observer - [Full Article]

Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart is still dealing with foot pain stemming from an injury he sustained in the Super Bowl four months ago.

Stewart has been limited throughout much of organized team activities with discomfort in his left foot, Panthers coach Ron Rivera told the Observer after Tuesday’s practice.

“That foot just kind of lingered after he got bent over backwards in the Super Bowl,” Rivera said. “When he showed up it was still sore a little bit. When he started to run he said he could still feel it a little bit.”

“Lately he said he’s been feeling really good, so (Tuesday) he got a good dose of it,” Rivera said. “We’re really trying to be smart with that and I wouldn’t say it’s 100 percent, but it’s almost there.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Despite missing three games, Stewart finished #16 in standard scoring and was #9 through Week 14. This news will only serve to depress his already depressed ADP. He's currently the #28 RB off the board in the 6th round. That's good value, though his long injury history is a concern.
