Stewart hurt his right calf during a 23-17 loss at Atlanta last week, and he's missing just his second start since moving into the lineup in 2006. He missed a start because of an injury in 2009.
The Bucs deactivated defensive end Michael Bennett, who had been doubtful with an injured groin. Da'Quan Bowers started at left end.
The Bucs' other inactives included wide receiver Michael Spurlock.
