Stewart will start on PUP list-- Tue Aug 27 1:15 pm --
Panthers RB still battling ankle issues
After meeting with a doctor about his surgically repaired right ankle Tuesday, Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart will begin the season on the physically unable to perform list, according to a league source. Stewart, who has been on the preseason PUP list, would not be eligible to come off until the sixth week of the season. (Charolotte Observer)
FF Today's Take:This will shelve Stewart for the first six weeks of the season and make DeAngelo Williams the starter Week 1. Williams gets a bump on this news but he's still more suited as a flex option than a RB2 given Cam Newton's rushing ability and the QBs use around the goaline.
