Jonathan Stewart injury update: Fantasy status doubtful due to ankle problems

Patrick McDermott

Jonathan Stewart is expected to sit for the Panthers against the Chiefs in Week 13 due to injuries in both ankles. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jonathan Stewart is expected to sit for the Carolina Panthers against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 13 due problems with both ankles. He was listed as doubtful on Friday's injury report after missing practice throughout the week.

As a result, DeAngelo Williams is expected to handle the rushing load for the Panthers. He is averaging just 3.2 yards per carry on 91 carries so far this season.

Fantasy Impact: Williams has been ineffective this season, and Cam Newton and Mike Tolbert are much more likely to handle the ball near the goal-line. Still, if you're desperate for a flex option then Williams should be serviceable this week. The Chiefs give up 4.5 yards per carry, and are allowing 126.1 yards rushing per game on the season.
