In addition to sustaining a left high-ankle sprain at Philadelphia in Week 12, Jonathan Stewart also re-injured his right ankle.
Stewart missed two of the season's first three games with a right high-ankle sprain sustained in the preseason. His short-area explosiveness and breakaway speed haven't been the same since. Now both ankles are injured. Stewart is still hoping to play at Kansas City this week, which is yet another reason to be skeptical of coach Ron Rivera's "high-ankle" designation. He's yet to practice, however, and appears to be a long shot to suit up.
ouch. how the heck he has been able to play on a single bad ankle is one thing...
i'm curious why the coaching staff doesn't take the john fox approach by keeping him out of practice from here on out but still let him play on sundays.
