Rivera Says He Doesn’t Think Stewart Suffered a High Ankle Sprain

The news on running back Jonathan Stewart is good – at least according to his coach.

Coach Ron Rivera said Sunday that he doesn’t believe running back Stewart suffered a high ankle sprain.

It sounds like Stewart avoided a worst-case scenario from the injury he suffered in Sunday’s preseason game, but his availability for Week 1 is in question.

Bottom line, they will take precautions with him, with the hopes of him taking the field, but don’t look for the Panthers to force him back in before he’s ready and 100 percent.
