Stewart carried 11 times for 50 yards and caught his only target for an additional three yards in Sunday's game against the Seahawks. He also lost a fumble in the 40-7 defeat.

EDGE Analysis

Stewart averaged a healthy 4.5 yards per carry, but a stout Seattle defense and the lopsided nature of the game significantly limited his workload. He continues to see the vast majority of the running back touches for the Panthers, but his lack of involvement in the passing game makes him somewhat dependent on scoring touchdowns to produce positive fantasy results when presented with a tough matchup. Stewart will look to bounce back next week against the Chargers.

Stewart rushed 17 times for 96 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Stewart's rushing production was buoyed by one 47-yard scamper, but his 5.6 yards per carry clip isn't anything to scoff at. In fact, it's his highest mark of the season. The former first-rounder now has three touchdowns in the past two games as well, although he may have trouble crossing the plain next week against the Seahawks' 11th-ranked run defense.

Stewart gained 31 yards and scored a touchdown on 18 carries in Thursday's 23-20 win over the Saints. He also secured one of four targets for eight yards.

EDGE Analysis

Stewart was completely stonewalled on the ground for the third consecutive week, with the 1.7 yards he averaged per carry serving as his lowest figure in that category this season. Despite the struggles, the Panthers clearly remain committed to Stewart as their lead back, which at least offers some encouragement to fantasy owners. However, his near non-existent presence in the passing game certainly diminishes his value. He'll try to bounce back against the Raiders out west in Week 12.

Stewart was held out of practice Tuesday for the second straight day in order to rest, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Panthers have made a habit of giving Stewart ample rest in between games, so it should not come as a surprise that he is being held out of practice, particularly with the team playing Thursday this week. The Panthers could give Stewart another day of rest Wednesday given the short week, but given the pattern from recent weeks, consider him on track to take the field for this week's matchup with the Saints.

Stewart rushed for 39 yards on 13 carries in Sunday's loss to Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

Stewart hit the ground running against New Orleans and Arizona after a three-week absence with a hamstring injury, scoring four times and averaging 90 yards per game. He's failed to reach 80 yards total in his last two games. A drop off in carries, 14.5 per game over the past two games as compared to 22 per game in his first two games off the shelf, can be attributed as a factor. Cam Newton's carries per game has more than doubled in that span and it's hard to blame Carolina for turning to their star to lift the offense. Stewart has slowed considerably and those two games look more like exception than rule. In Stewart's other four games this season, including Sunday, Stewart has averaged just 3.2 yards per carry with no scores.

Stewart sat out Thursday's practice for purposes of rest, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

For the second straight session, Stewart has been afforded a veteran's day off, which is expected to be followed by a full practice Friday, if last week's practice regiment is any indication. Assuming he does so, he'll face a Chiefs defense that has allowed 105 yards per game on the ground and seven total touchdowns to running backs this season.

Stewart had 15 carries for just 42 yards in Sunday's 13-10 win over the Rams. He was not targeted in the passing game.

EDGE Analysis

Stewart was contained for most of the day, until he ripped off a 17-yard run early in the fourth quarter. Even though Stewart didn't make much of an impact from a fantasy standpoint, he once again served as Carolina's lead back, as Fozzy Whittaker and Mike Tolbert combined to carry the ball just three times for one yard. Next week, Stewart will face the Chiefs at home.

Stewart was a full participant at Friday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Stewart was held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday for purposes of rest, with no specific ailment listed on the injury report. His Friday return as a full participant should quell any concerns regarding his two-day absence. Stewart should be fine to serve in his usual role as Carolina's lead back Sunday in Los Angeles.

Stewart took part in Friday's practice, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's not clear if Stewart was limited at all Friday, but he was able to get on the field after resting the previous two days. Barring any sort of injury that was previously unannounced, consider him on track to play Sunday.
