RB Stewart inactive for Panthers against Saints
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)
Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart is inactive for Sunday's crucial NFC South showdown against the New Orleans Saints, a game that could determine the division title and who gets a first-round bye in the playoffs.
There are no surprise inactives for either team.
Stewart had been ruled out earlier in the week, but coach Ron Rivera is hoping the former first-round draft pick will be back for the playoffs.
Inactive for the Saints are quarterback Ryan Griffin, running back Travaris Cadet, wide receiver Nick Toon, tight end Josh Hill, defensive end Tom Johnson, linebacker Keyunta Dawson and safety Rafael Bush.
