Only Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart listed as out for Sunday vs. Jets

With the exception of running back Jonathan Stewart, the Carolina Panthers will enter Sunday’s game against the New York Jets relatively healthy.

Stewart is the only played listed as out for the team. Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Stewart would likely not return before the Week 17 game against Atlanta.

Four Panthers who missed at least part of practice this week are listed as probable for the game, including tight end Greg Olsen.

Olsen missed Wednesday’s practice and returned Thursday in a limited capacity. He participated fully Friday.

“Greg looked pretty good today so I’m not even concerned anymore,” Rivera said.

Starting right guard Nate Chandler (elbow) is probable, and former starter Chris Scott (knee) is expected to play in his first game since Week 9.

Special teamer and linebacker Jordan Senn returned to practice Friday after missing Thursday with an illness. He tweaked his hamstring last week but Rivera said he was not concerned about the injury more than the illness.

Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie (hip/concussion) is the only Jets player listed as questionable. He has three interceptions this season.
