Panthers RB Stewart expected to start

Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams did not make the trip to St. Louis, meaning that RB Jonathan Stewart is expected to start on Sunday.

Stewart, as you may recall, finished strong in 2009 while picking up for Williams in the final three games, including a huge 206-yard effort against the Giants in Week 16.

Stewart is a good start as an RB2 this week, because non-committee running backs are hard to find. But it is hard to expect the same superstar effort this year from Stewart as the Panthers have struggled running the ball. In fact, Carolina ranks near the bottom in the NFL with only two rushing touchdowns this season.

Start Stewart, but temper your expectations.
