CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)
Carolina spokesman Charlie Dayton announced the injury Monday.
Panthers coach Ron Rivera says Stewart will be out a minimum of 10 days, but remains optimistic he could return at some point this season.
Stewart will not play Sunday against the New York Jets. The Panthers (9-4) are positioned for a postseason berth with three games left.
It's been a rough season for Stewart, who missed the first seven games of the year on the physically unable to perform list with an ankle injury.
