Jonathan Stewart was moved from the training camp PUP list to the regular-season reserve PUP list, per NFL.com.
Stewart played in nine games last year and is coming off off-season ankle surgery.
The good news for Stewart is that he will only miss a minimum of five games, not six, because the Panthers have a bye week in week four this season.
