Panthers activate Jonathan Stewart from PUP list

The Panthers added running back Jonathan Stewart to the active roster on Saturday.

The move was expected.

Stewart was on the physically unable to perform list for the Panthers’ first seven games with an ankle injury.

Stewart, 26, rushed for 336 yards on 93 carries in 2012 for Carolina. He figures to be a key part of a backfield that includes DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert. For his career, Stewart has gained 3,836 yards and 27 touchdowns on 818 carries (4.7 ypc).

With Stewart joining the roster, the Panthers waived running back Armond Smith. Smith appeared in five games for Carolina this season, rushing four times for five yards.

    The scary talented Falcons defense will allow JStew to rush for over 100 yards off the bench in reserve. Tony Gonzalez can’t come in to stop the run, should have traded him away for something anything like old Halloween candy in return. Andre Ellington is just a guy after all.

    Honestly, he looks bigger there than he does on his show on Comedy Central…
