Stewart, Gronk go on season-ending I.R.

Torn apart: So last night, I’m sitting at home watching the Panthers take on the Saints. Jonathan Stewart takes a play near the sidelines and gets hit low as he goes out of bounds. I swear to you on my soul that my very first thought was “Oh, no … for a guy who has suffered a ridiculous amount of foot injuries, that hit looked like a dangerous one to take.

If you drafted him and stashed him on your bench while living with whatever fill-in you could find, chances are you’ll be rewarded for your patience.
