Jonathan Stewart Injury: Updates on Panthers Star's Ankle

Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart injured his ankle in Sunday's matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and is questionable to return, according to the team's official Twitter account:

UPDATE: Sunday, November 18 at 4:10 p.m. ET

Jonathan Stewart returned to action after leaving earlier due to an ankle injury, according to Rotoworld's Adam Levitan.

---End of Update---

Stewart had 39 yards rushing and a touchdown on nine carries before coming out of the game. The touchdown was Stewart's first on the ground this season. He also made one reception for an additional 30 yards.

The former Oregon Duck is Carolina's second-leading rusher this season. He was averaging 3.8 yards per carry and fewer than 39 rushing yards per game coming into Week 11's game. 

News that it's Stewart's ankle that's ailing is terrible for Panthers fans and fantasy owners. Stewart also missed some time at the beginning of the regular season after injuring his ankle during the preseason in August.
