While speaking to the media on Tuesday, Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said that Stewart suffered a high ankle sprain in the third quarter of Carolina's 30-22 win over the Eagles. Stewart rushed for 27 yards on eight carries before being leaving the game on Monday. On the season, Stewart has tallied 336 yards and a touchdown on 93 carries for the Panthers.
If Stewart is unable to play Sunday when the Panthers travel to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs, the Panthers will turn to DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert to handle the majority of rushes on the night. Williams has 292 yards and three touchdowns on 91 carries so far this year, while Tolbert has carried the ball 23 times for 55 yards and two touchdowns.
