Stewart was fined $18,231 for roughing the passer during Week 1's regular season opener against the Panthers, USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports.

EDGE Analysis

Stewart's illegal hit on Panthers quarterback Cam Newton warranted the minimum fine amount for a first offense in 2016. The free safety will look to put the issue behind him as he prepares for a Week 2 tilt against the Colts.

Stewart tallied 63 tackles, a forced fumble, two fumble recoveries, a pick and 10 passes defended in 2015. He added 11 tackles, a sack, a forced fumble, an interception and three passes defended in the playoffs.

EDGE Analysis

Playing a jack-of-all-trades role, Stewart ranked third on the team in tackles while making his presence felt in the passing game. A huge interception in the AFC Championship Game and forced fumble in Super Bowl 50 set a favorable tone for this offseason's contract negotiations, but those negotiations will likely conclude with a move to a different city. Von Miller, Malik Jackson, Brock Osweiler and Danny Trevathan have all been identified as priorities for Denver to resign this offseason. With it doubtful that the team will have the money to keep all four, Stewart is unlikely to be a factor in the Broncos' future.

Stewart recorded three tackles a sack, a forced fumble and defended two passes in the Broncos' Super Bowl 50 win over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Mike Tolbert was a 250-pound unstoppable force rumbling down the field for an 11 yard gain in the second quarter. He then met an immovable object in Stewart, who dislodged the ball from the fullback. Stewart signed a modest one-year deal to come to Denver in the offseason and serve as the fourth part of the Broncos' "No Fly Zone." He responded with his best statistical season since 2011. Unless Stewart is willing to take a team-friendly deal, it is hard to imagine Denver being able to properly reward him for his efforts.

Stewart (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's Super Bowl against the Panthers, Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

In advance of the season-ending tilt, Stewart was likely the most iffy of the Broncos' injured, but with two weeks to rest, he won't be denied by the sprained MCL sustained in the AFC championship game. While his tackle totals were modest from game to game, he was still involved in five turnovers this season (three fumbles and two interceptions).

Stewart (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's Super Bowl against the Panthers, Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

After failing to practice last week, Stewart is now in line to fulfill expectations and suit up in Sunday's season-defining tilt. On the season (including playoffs), he racked up 71 tackles (53 solo), two interceptions, two fumble recoveries, and one forced fumble in 17 games.

Stewart (knee) practiced fully Thursday, Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Stewart appears poised to brush off a sprained MCL suffered in the AFC championship game, though Friday's injury report will likely provide final passage to availability in Super Bowl 50.

Stewart (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice, Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Stewart received a respite from drills last week due to a sprained MCL, which he sustained during the AFC championship game. Building up practice reps is likely on the docket this week, but everyone associated with the Broncos expects the free safety to take the field in Super Bowl 50.

Coach Gary Kubiak expects Stewart to practice Wednesday, Troy Renck of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The extended resting period before the Super Bowl has afforded Stewart much-needed time off the field, but there hasn't been much concern for him actually sitting out the big game with his sprained MCL. Barring something unforeseen, the safety will undertake his normal duties against the Panthers on Sunday.

Stewart (knee) did not practice Thursday, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Stewart continues to nurse the sprained MCL injury he suffered during Sunday's win over the Patriots, but he'll have plenty of time to heal before the Super Bowl. The Broncos' starting safety plans to be ready for the big game, but Shiloh Keo figures to fill in if Stewart suffers a setback.

Stewart (knee) was listed as a DNP on Wednesday's injury report, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Broncos did not take the field for practice Wednesday but were still required to release an injury report, meaning that Stewart would not have been able to participate had they practiced. Stewart's sprained knee coupled with T.J Ward's ankle injury leave the Broncos with a nicked up pair of safeties, but there is plenty of time for them to get back on the field before their injuries become legitimate concerns.
