Jonathan Stewart says he does not have cancer, Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer reports.
But an injury report on the Sporting News stated the Carolina running back has been sidelined since June 9 with cancer and is out indefinitely.
Stewart wrote on Twitter, “Dear fans I do no have cancer @sportingnews must of had a typo in there updates! So there info is completely false no worries #fail.”
The Sporting News issued a correction late Sunday evening saying they were working to understand “why Stewart was improperly listed in the report” and removed all instances of the false report from the site.
