RB Jonathan Stewart suffered what appeared to be a right ankle injury in the Panthers' preseason game vs. the Jets Sunday.

Stewart stood up gingerly after making a run in the second quarter. He limped to the sideline but was later carted to the locker room.

Stewart, a fifth-year veteran, recently signed a contract extension after rushing 142 times for 761 yards (5.4 average) last season.
