Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart did not practice on Wednesday, via the Charlotte Observer. The Panthers tailback looks like he's going to miss his fifth-straight game with an ankle injury.
Stewart is still not right and should miss the season finale on Sunday. In Week 17, the Panthers will take on their division rival, the New Orleans Saints.
Fantasy Analysis: The load should once again fall on DeAngelo Williams' shoulders. He has been able to fill in with Stewart being out. The ground game has been more fluid when either Williams or Stewart is able to find a rhythm.
Stewart won't have legitimate fantasy value until he and Williams are on separate squads. Unfortunately, he still has a big time contract in play with Carolina.
