Jonathan Stewart sat out Panthers practice Tuesday with an ankle injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jonathan Stewart sat out Carolina Panthers practice Tuesday with a sprained ankle, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports. Stewart injured his ankle during the team's third preseason game on Aug. 26. There is no word yet on his status for Sunday's regular season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Analysis: Stewart will join the Panthers when they make their trip to Florida, setting up a possible game-time decision on the running back. The game against the Bucs kicks off at 4:25 p.m. ET, which may force fantasy owners to make a roster decision before they have official word whether or not Stewart will play. Be sure to follow up on injury reports in the coming days if you are relying on Stewart as part of your starting lineup. DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert would be in line for a larger workload if Stewart sits.
