Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart injured his right ankle late in the first half of the team's preseason game against the New York Jets on Sunday night. The Panthers announced in the third quarter that Stewart was out for the rest of the game. On first-and-goal from the Jets 9 with just over 2 minutes left in the half, Stewart took a handoff from Cam Newton and went down the right sideline for 7 yards before he was knocked out of bounds on a hard hit by LaRon Landry. Stewart stayed down for a few moments before being helped to the bench. After trainers looked at Stewart's right leg, the running back was carted to the locker room - but was smiling at his teammates as he headed into the tunnel.
