CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 16 (UPI) -- Now that the NFL has eliminated the 'probable' injury designation, expect to see a lot of fantasy football stars listed as questionable.

Stewart remains locked in as a solid RB2 this week against the San Francisco 49ers, despite the ominous 'questionable' tag. On Friday, Panthers coach Ron Rivera said that he expects Stewart to suit up. He should be looking at upwards of 20 carries in a game I expect to be lopsided. Stewart was 'limited' in practice Thursday with ankle soreness.

Stewart sprained his foot and rolled his ankle last season. The 29-year-old had 15 carries for 64 yards in Week 1 against the Denver Broncos. He had a career-high 242 carries for 989 yards and six rushing touchdowns in 2015.
