When most players have serious foot and ankle problems, they get on a plane to go see Dr. Robert Anderson.
Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart just has to go down the hall, since Anderson’s one of the Panthers’ team doctors.
According to Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer, Stewart is seeing Anderson this morning, at which point the Panthers will know better whether the sixth-year running back is going to be ready for the regular season.
“It’s one of those things, he’s still going through a couple other things with the doctor,” Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. “It’s one of those things that we’re just waiting to get the answer.”
Since Stewart hasn’t practiced this offseason, he’s still eligible for reserve/PUP, which would allow him to return after the first six weeks.
The Panthers could use him, especially with a renewed interest in running the ball with their running backs instead of the quarterback this year.
This Friday, I'm bringing some friends over to introduce them to the NFL. Ofcourse I will do this by showing them a fun to watch game of my beloved Panthers.
Now my first thought was to show them our W against the Falcons, because for me, that was my most exciting Panthers 2012 game.
Now with that in mind, why not ask it to the huddle? What was your most exciting 2012 Panthers game?
