Panthers’ RB Stewart “Ready” To Play

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart says he’s “ready” to play after sitting out the last 11 months with an ankle injury.

Stewart went through his first padded practice Wednesday since injuring his ankle last November and says he’s hopeful the Panthers will allow him to play Sunday against Atlanta.

Stewart would have to be activated from the physically unable to perform (PUP) list by Saturday for him to be eligible for the Atlanta game.

Coach Ron Rivera wouldn’t say if the Panthers would activate Stewart but says that he “had a good day” and “will be ready if he’s needed.”
