It appears Stewart is progressing well in his recovery, obviously monitoring any news over pre-season is a must.
Stewart is a consideration for season long fantasy at Round 1, ownership may thin out a little bit due to the injury at the end of the 2021 season.
He remains a strong early selection in single season draft leagues.
