Panthers' Jonathan Stewart to miss game vs. Bucs



Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart (ankle) posted on Twitter this morning that he'll be a spectator for today's game against the Bucs.

He's since removed the post, but Stewart wrote "I’ll be helping my team today by cheering them on!" via his verified Twitter account.

That still leaves plenty of talent in the Panthers' backfield. DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert are still available and more than capable of making up for the loss. The one area this leaves the Panthers exposed, however, is in depth. They'll have just two tailbacks on the roster for a game that figures to be a ground-and-pound matchup given the torrential rains in the area this morning.
