Panthers Place Stewart On PUP List

The Carolina Panthers will be without running back Jonathan Stewart for the first six weeks of the season. 
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported last Tuesday that the team placed Stewart on the regular season physically unable to perform list after a doctor gave negative results on his surgically repaired right ankle.
Stewart won't be able to play until the October 20th game when the St. Louis Rams play the Panthers in Week 7.
Coach Ron Rivera had indicated earlier last month that Stewart had been on target to play in the season opener, but the running back, who played just nine games last season, has been limited to just riding a stationary bike this summer. 
Stewart has been very unreliable since signing a six-year, $37.811 million contract last August. He is scheduled to earn a $9 million optional bonus in 2014, so this may be his last year with the Panthers.
