Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said running back Jonathan Stewart is "very doubtful" for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
"Hes very sore and didnt do a lot of moving around today," Rivera said. "Well see again tomorrow and probably make the decision sometime tomorrow."
Stewart suffered a high left ankle sprain against the Eagles in the second quarter of Monday night's game and did not return. When Stewart sprained his right ankle in the preseason, Rivera referred to Stewart as "very doubtful." He said that term would apply to Stewart for Sunday's game.
In the liklihood that he won't be able to go, former starter DeAngelo Williams will get the nod for the first time since Week 5 against Seattle.
Also doubtful for the Panthers is DE Antwan Applewhite (hamstring). Captain Munnerlyn (hamstring) did not practice Friday and is listed as questionable. He had not participated all week and gave it a go Friday before his hamstring got sore early and the staff sat him.
Cam Newton (right wrist) is probable and has participated fully in practice all week. He injured his wrist when he tried to break his fall after getting knocked down on a screen pass against the Eagles on Monday.
