Report: Panthers' Jonathan Stewart (foot) expected to play Sunday
Monday January 11th, 2016

Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart, who has missed the past three games due to a foot injury, is expected to return on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Stewart sprained his foot in the team’s 38–0 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 14, and returned to practice for the first time on Wednesday.

Tailback Fozzy Whittaker’s status is still uncertain after missing the team’s regular-season finale with an ankle injury, while wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. (leg) and safety Kurt Coleman (foot) are expected to suit up, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

The Panthers host the Seahawks at 1:05 p.m. ET on Sunday in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs.
