Stewart: I’ll Be Ready


Apparently, the media types all had a chance to sit at Bank of America Stadium today to do a conference call with Panthers’ thirteenth pick Jonathan Stewart.  I didn’t.

I was busy watching the draft on TV and blogging about it like we bloggers do.

Anyway, here’s what was said during the confernce call, courtesy of the Charlotte Observer.

"The interview with Panthers top pick Jonathan Stewart (running back) is just now closing, and Stewart told the assembled media in Bank of America Stadium (on a conference call) that despite recent surgery for turf toe, he would be ready to go for training camp.Stewart said he had surgery on the toe Mar. 12 and should start doing his rehabilitation within a week. The surgery was done by Panthers doctor Robert Anderson.Stewart said the toe caused him considerable pain last season, and limited his ability to cut at times.Asked if he had seen DeAngelo Williams, the running back he’ll likely share time with on the Panthers, run, Stewart laughed and said, “I watched DeAngelo when he was tearing it up (in college) at Memphis.”"
