Browns' M.J. Stewart: Set to play in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart (hamstring) is active Week 1 against Baltimore.

Stewart was limited in practice all week and entered the opener with a "questionable" designation, but it looks like he's healthy enough to suit up for the divisional matchup. Per Tony Grossi of ESPN, Stewart should see time at nickelback with Kevin Johnson (abdomen) inactive.

Browns' M.J. Stewart: Officially questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.

Stewart has been managing a hamstring injury since late August. With Greedy Williams (shoulder) and Kevin Johnson (abdomen) already ruled out for Week 1, Stewart could be in line for an increased depth role at cornerback if he's able to suit up.

Browns' M.J. Stewart: Resumes practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Stewart has been dealing with a hamstring issue since late August, so it's notable to see him back at practice even if the extent of his participation can't yet be confirmed. With Greedy Williams (shoulder) and Kevin Johnson (abdomen) both also managing injuries, Stewart could have an opportunity for increased snaps Week 1 against Baltimore if he's able to get fully healthy.

Browns' M.J. Stewart: Hampered by hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart (hamstring) didn't practice Monday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Stewart is in the midst of a fresh start with the Browns after the 2018 second-round pick was cut by Tampa Bay in early August, but now he'll need to overcome another injury -- a common occurrence for the cornerback. The Browns' cornerback corps is littered with injuries, as Greedy Williams (shoulder), Kevin Johnson (abdomen) and Terrance Mitchell (knee) are all sidelined right now, so a quick return to practice could allow Stewart to log some first-team reps.

Browns' M.J. Stewart: Finds new home
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns claimed Stewart off waivers Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Selected by the Buccaneers in the second round of the 2018 draft, Stewart suffered through injuries and ineffectiveness during two seasons with the team. Overall, he totaled 68 tackles and five passes defended in 21 appearances. Tampa Bay recently cut Stewart, allowing him to find a new home in Cleveland. He'll provide depth for a cornerback group led by Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams.

M.J. Stewart: Time up in Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Buccaneers waived Stewart on Thursday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Stewart joined the Buccaneers in 2018 as a second-round pick, but he failed to transform into a reliable member of the secondary over two years with the team. Having lost the starting nickel job in 2019 and even been a late scratch toward the end of the season, the writing was on the wall that Stewart had fallen out of favor in Tampa Bay. Still, it's somewhat surprising to see that the team went so far as to cut the 24-year-old, rather than simply relegate him to a depth role.

Buccaneers' M.J. Stewart: Modest sophomore campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart logged 35 tackles (28 solo) and two defensed passes across 10 games during the 2019 season.

Through 21 career games, Stewart has yet to log a turnover, but he once again served as a steady, albeit unspectacular, member of the Buccaneers' secondary rotation. The 2018 second-round pick dealt with a knee sprain that cost him three games, and he also was a healthy scratch on three other occasions. As his final line indicates, Stewart had next to no IDP value in 2019, and he may have a battle on his hands to hold onto a roster spot next season as a result of his modest first pair of campaigns.

Buccaneers' M.J. Stewart: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Lions, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Stewart appears to be a healthy scratch for Week 15. In his stead, Jamel Dean, Ryan Smith and Mazzi Wilkins are candidates to play expanded depth roles in Tampa Bay's secondary.

Buccaneers' M.J. Stewart: Suiting up Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart (knee) is active for Sunday's Week 14 tilt against the Colts, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Stewart will be making his return from a three-game absence. The second-year cornerback figures to slot into a rotational role at cornerback behind Sean Murphy-Bunting against the Colts.

Buccaneers' M.J. Stewart: Receives questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts, Carmen Vitali of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

The 24-year-old has been out the last three games due to the right knee sprain but may be able to return Week 14. Jamel Dean (shoulder) should continue filling in as the nickel cornerback if Stewart can't suit up.

Buccaneers' M.J. Stewart: Works as limited participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart (knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Stewart missed the last three games due to the right knee sprain, but his return to practice may give him a chance to suit up Week 14. Jamel Dean should continue working as the nickel cornerback if Stewart is unable to play.

Buccaneers' M.J. Stewart: Out Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game at Jacksonville, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Stewart continues to recover from a right knee sprain and will miss his third straight game. Jamel Dean should work as Tampa Bay's nickel cornerback in Stewart's absence.

November 27, 2019 10:44 PM
Buccaneers' M.J. Stewart: No practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

Stewart has missed two consecutive contests due to a sprained right knee, and he appears to be trending in the wrong direction for Sunday's game in Jacksonville. With Sean Murphy-Bunting (knee) and Jamel Dean (shoulder) also nursing injuries, Tampa Bay's secondary could be hampered by a multitude of issues Week 13.

Buccaneers' M.J. Stewart: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Bruce Arians said Friday that Stewart (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Falcons, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Stewart will miss a second straight game as he nurses a sprained right knee. As long as the 2018 second-round pick is unable to go, expect Carlton Davis and Sean Murphy-Bunting to remain locked in as Tampa Bay's starters at cornerback.

Buccaneers' M.J. Stewart: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Carmen Vitali of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Stewart was poised for increased duties when Vernon Hargreaves was waived but he's in danger of missing a second straight game due to a sprained right knee. If the 2018 second-round pick ultimately is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Carlton Davis and Sean Murphy-Bunting figure to be locked into starting cornerback roles.

Buccaneers' M.J. Stewart: Won't play versus Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Stewart is nursing a sprained right knee suffered during Week 10's win over the Cardinals. His injury carries an expected recovery timetable of at least a couple weeks, so it doesn't come as much of a surprise that he won't suit up Week 11. As long as Stewart is unable to go, expect Sean Murphy-Bunting, Jamel Dean and Ryan Smith to see expanded depth roles. With starting cornerback Carlton Davis (hip) still getting back to full health, Stewart's injury has come at a particularly inopportune time.

Buccaneers' M.J. Stewart: Battling sprained knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart has a sprained right knee and could miss a couple weeks, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Stewart suffered this injury during this past Sunday's win over the Cardinals. While there isn't an official timeline for Stewart's return, he's considered a longshot for Sunday's game against the Saints. The timing of his injury is unfortunate, as the 2018 second-round pick may have started Sunday since Vernon Hargreaves was waived Tuesday and Carlton Davis (hip) is still on the mend. If Davis is unable to go, Sean Murphy-Bunting, Jamel Dean and Ryan Smith are expected to round out the team's cornerback corps.

Buccaneers' M.J. Stewart: Posts eight tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart (knee) registered eight tackles (six solo) in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

Stewart recorded his stat line over the course of only 52 snaps, with 10 of those being on special teams, as he was forced from Sunday's game with a knee injury and did not return. With Vernon Hargreaves being waived Tuesday, Stewart could be in line for a larger role on defense given that his knee injury is not serious.

Buccaneers' M.J. Stewart: Leaves with knee issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart suffered a knee injury and won't return to Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

This was Stewart's first game back after two straight healthy scratches. He's deep on the Buccaneers' depth chart, and he'll look to shake off the injury before Week 11's contest against the Saints.

Buccaneers' M.J. Stewart: Healthy scratch versus Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Stewart has been surpassed by Sean Murphy-Bunting as Tampa Bay's starting nickelback. As such, he doesn't factor into the team's plans on defense Week 8.
