Walter Stewart Out Against The Toledo Rockets

Rob Leifheit-US PRESSWIRE

The Bearcats defense takes a huge hit today as Walter Stewart will be out of the game. Stewart picked up an injury in the Fordham game.

By most statistical measures the Cincinnati Bearcats defense is playing at a much higher level this season than in years past. Yards per game and passer rating allowed are hovering at around the 2008 defenses numbers. But in this safe, supportive environment known as the internet I think Bearcat fans can admit something to themselves: UC hasn't really played a good offense yet. That changes tonight, but this defense will have to get it done without Walter Stewart.

Senior defensive end Walter Stewart will not play due to an undisclosed upper body injury that he suffered in last week’s game against Fordham. Stewart continued to play after sustaining the injury.

Walt's production will be missed, dearly, against an offense as talented and explosive as the Rockets. The glass half full part of me would like to think that the coaches are playing it safe so that Walt can go against Louisville. But I don't know if I am that optimistic.
