Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart sprains ankle, sports crutches

Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart @Jonathanstewar1 sprained his right ankle during the second quarter of Sunday's game versus the Jets and was carted away from the field a few minutes later. According to the Charlotte Observer's Joe Person, Stewart was on crutches after the game. However, head coach Ron Rivera said X-rays on Stewart's ankle came back "completely negative." Rivera also said he didn't think Stewart had the dreaded high ankle sprain.

Fantasy Analysis:

Stewart has already been ruled out for Thursday's preseason finale, but that's nothing. We should get another update on Stewart's condition Monday after an MRI. DeAngelo Williams @DeAngeloRB would get a bump in value if Stewart has to miss any playing time. If I had to guess, I think Stewart is very questionable for Week 1. Two weeks isn't much time for even a run-of-the-mill sprained ankle to heal.

None unless its confirmed that J-Stew misses time. But even if that happens, he might go from a RB3/Flex to maybe a weak RB2 in 12-14 team leagues. Even both of them healthy they will never stand a chance of repeating past numbers with Cam Superman Newton acting as QB/RB.
