  Panthers | Cam Newton misses practice    Wed Sep 18, 03:36 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 18.

Footballguys view: Newton was still in a walking boot according to reports. It's not trending in the right way for him to play in Week 3. If Newton is down, Kyle Allen gets the start for Carolina.

  Panthers | Cam Newton remains in a boot    Wed Sep 18, 08:40 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) remains in a walking boot Wednesday, Sept. 18. If he can practice soon, he has a chance to play in Week 3.

Footballguys view: It's only Wednesday but things are not trending in the right direction for Newton. If he misses the Week 3 game against the Cardinals, the Panthers would turn to Kyle Allen as their starter. Newton may not practice all week, so stay tuned here and downgrade Panthers receivers if Allen is the starter.

  Panthers | Cam Newton aggravated foot injury    Tue Sep 17, 11:36 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) could be at risk of missing Week 3 after he aggravated his foot injury over the weekend. He's out of practice Tuesday, Sept. 17, and rehabbing.

Footballguys view: Watch Newton's progress (if he has any) as the week of practice goes on. It sounds like there's an option he misses the upcoming game against the Cardinals. If Newton is out, that means Kyle Allen would get the nod as the starting quarterback for the Panthers.

  Panthers | Lack of conditioning for Cam Newton?    Fri Sep 13, 12:28 PM

  Panthers | Cam Newton struggles once again    Fri Sep 13, 01:06 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 25 of 51 passes for 333 yards during the team's Week 2 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Newton also ran twice for no yards and lost a fumble.

Footballguys view: Newton was a nonfactor as a runner and either off or pressured on too many of his throws to make this a positive night for fantasy football. Something mental and/or physical is holding him back right now. He could get right against the Cardinals next week, or this could be a sign that he's not going to get back to past levels any time soon.

  Panthers | Cam Newton inspiring confidence    Thu Sep 12, 12:20 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) was bothered some by a sprained foot and missed practice time in Week 1 rather than any lingering issues in his recovery from offseason shoulder surgery, according to the team. Newton took all the snaps in practice this week heading into the Week 2 game Thursday, Sept. 12. 'I feel good about him and what he's done to get himself ready to roll,' head coach Ron Rivera said.

Footballguys view: Newton and the Panthers put up a good fight in Week 1 against the Rams. We'll see what kind of confidence he can inspire on Thursday night against the Buccaneers.

  Panthers | Cam Newton can throw deep ball when he needs to    Tue Sep 10, 06:03 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton assured reporters Tuesday, Sept. 10, he'll be able to throw the deep ball whenever it's required. 'If it's going to hinder us from winning, I don't want to throw it. But if it's going to make us win, 'Oh, baby,' you better throw some doggone deep balls,' Newton said while impersonating offensive coordinator Norv Turner.

Footballguys view: It takes some time getting used to Newton's new throwing motion because it's more compact and different than he used to throw. Newton underwent arthroscopic surgery on his throwing shoulder in the offseason and has changed his motion in an effort to minimize the torque on the joint.

  Panthers | Cam Newton back to normal    Thu Sep 5, 04:15 PM

Footballguys view: Newton will need that mobility against Aaron Donald on Sunday. He's still a solid QB1 in a game that could end up as a shootout.

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton shed his walking boot Sunday, Aug. 25, according to multiple media reports.

  Panthers | Cam Newton has mid-foot sprain    Fri Aug 23, 11:40 AM

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) was diagnosed with a mid-foot sprain, and the team is cautiously optimistic about his status for Week 1.

Footballguys view: Newton will face Aaron Donald Week 1 so the team will need to be careful. He should drop on boards to about QB10 with the tightly packed group from 4-10 at the position. There's no need to take on injury risk with similar high ceiling quarterbacks on the board around Newton.

  Panthers | Cam Newton, Christian McCaffrey set to play    Mon Aug 19, 04:27 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton and RB Christian McCaffrey are scheduled to play with the rest of the team's starters in Thursday, Aug. 22's preseason game against the New England Patriots. 'They've been the gold standard for a long time,'' head coach Ron Rivera said. 'You want to go out and see just how good you are. It is a good measuring stick as to who we can be as a football team.''

Footballguys view: Reporters around the team have marveled at Newton's deep passing in camp. He struggled with shoulder problems last year and had to change his game. With Newton near full strength, we could see a return of the deep pass in 2019.

  Panthers | Cam Newton making changes    Thu Aug 1, 12:22 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton has been working on tweaking his throwing motion and making other changes to his routine to better his chances of remaining healthy. 'It's still a work in progress,' Newton said Thursday, Aug. 1. 'One thing I wanted to work on was just being honest with myself. Knowing when to sit out of practice and working on my body. I'm as hungry as ever. But guys that are on board on offense need me to be my best self.'

Footballguys view: Newton's new throwing motion is more compact and hopefully going to cut down on the torque with his shoulder when he throws. He's been working on changing it all offseason long and he's in the process of getting better with the new motion.

  Panthers | Cam Newton on a pitch count    Wed Jul 24, 01:57 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) will be on a pitch count in training camp, but he avoided the Physically Unable to Perform list. 'It's going to be structured around our installation. So based on the things that we have as far as going in with our install will dictate what he does,' head coach Ron Rivera said. 'All of his reps will be monitored, they'll be scripted out, and we'll just follow that pattern as we go through it.'

Footballguys view: That sounds about right. Newton has changed his throwing motion to reduce the amount of torque on his shoulder. We'll see if these steps help him stay healthy in 2019. Don't expect to see a lot of Newton in the preseason, so stay tuned to the reports coming out of training camp.

  Panthers | Cam Newton to be full go at camp    Tue Jul 9, 10:38 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is slated to be a full participant when training camp opens July 24. Newton struggled with soreness and tightness in his right shoulder stemming from scar tissue and cartilage damage that built up after his surgery for a torn rotator cuff.

Footballguys view: It's been all good news for Newton during this offseason. Newton had the shoulder cleaned out in the offseason and it was revealed the cartilage damage was much less severe than anticipated. He's changed his throwing motion in an effort to be less stressful on the joint. If healthy, Newton is a low-end QB1 for Fantasy GMs. His current ADP is QB11 (9.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Panthers | Cam Newton has new throwing motion    Wed Jun 12, 09:21 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is using a new throwing motion in hopes of preserving his shoulder for the long haul. 'Making him a little more compact in his upper body. A little more closed off, just so he's not as open throwing the ball. And just to make him as efficient as possible and putting the least amount of stress possible,' quarterbacks coach Scott Turner said Wednesday, June 12.

Footballguys view: The work on Newton's passing motion began last year when Turner cleaned up Newton's footwork. They also worked to have Newton get rid of the ball quicker when things weren't open deep. Newton's completion percentage jumped to a career high 67.9 percent (his career average was around 59 percent). Now, the team is keeping his upper body compact to prevent unnatural movement or over-torque on his shoulder. Newton insists the motion is not that different, and we'll see if it helps his shoulder stay healthy in 2019.

  Panthers | Cam Newton throws in minicamp    Tue Jun 11, 01:50 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) threw to stationary targets Tuesday, June 11, during the team's minicamp practice. It was the first time Newton has thrown passes publicly since undergoing shoulder surgery in January. 'If you go back and look at a lot of things that happened before he started having shoulder issues, you can see the improvement, you can see the footwork, you can see the whole development of him,'' coach Ron Rivera said. 'As the shoulder started to go, then you saw everything fall by the wayside. Now you get an opportunity to go back, rework those things, do the things he needs to do to improve. He's done a great job.'

Footballguys view: Another day and more positive news about Newton here. A healthy Newton is a dangerous Newton and a player Fantasy GMs want to add in drafts of all formats. Newton has QB1 upside but is currently going off the board in the mid-QB2 tier. If he performs well in the preseason, we could see his ADP climb into the low-end QB1 range.

  Panthers | Cam Newton to do plenty of throwing    Sat Jun 8, 11:55 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) will throw in all quarterback drills during the team's upcoming mandatory minicamp.

Footballguys view: It was reported a couple of weeks ago that Newton had begun throwing a regulation size football. This is another great sign for Newton's recovery. They'll put him through a bunch of work in minicamp and get him ready for training camp. Newton has stated that he's not going to change his playing style, and with a ton of weapons around him, he could post QB1 numbers once again in 2019. He finished as the No. 14 fantasy QB in 2018 and is currently going off the board around QB12.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) has started throwing a regulation-size football as part of his rehab, according to a source.

Footballguys view: He's getting back to some normalcy and Newton has already said that he's not going to change his playing style. That's great if he stays healthy, and Fantasy GMs know that's the biggest concern with the veteran passer. Newton is currently going off the board at QB12 (9.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Panthers | Cam Newton absent    Tue May 28, 09:58 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton is absent from organized team activities Tuesday, May 28, in what has been deemed a personal day.

  Panthers | Cam Newton not changing style    Fri May 10, 08:14 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) said he is too old to change his playing style.

Footballguys view: Newton just turned 30 so this is an apt comment. It's both good and bad news for fantasy as he's going to continue to put his body at risk to gain yards and fantasy points on the ground, but he'll also be prone to taking hits on the shoulder that let him down and had to be surgically repaired again this offseason.

  Panthers | Cam Newton feeling great    Mon May 6, 11:41 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) said he feels at full strength and hopes to be throwing before training camp. Newton hasn't been given a timetable for when he'll be cleared, but he's confident there won't be another setback like last season. He began a vegan diet in hopes of getting his weight into the 237-pound range, which would be the lowest of his career.

Footballguys view: Newton's weight isn't an issue, it's the fact that he takes big hits from defenders all the time. He's an athletic quarterback but using his legs comes with a price. The team needs to protect him better when he's in the pocket and Newton needs to learn how to get rid of the ball quicker or throw the ball away in order to preserve his health. We should see him at some point in training camp.

Footballguys view: Good news for all involved here. The Panthers are confident that Newton will be ready for training camp. Now, the key is keeping Newton healthy in 2019. If they can do that, the Panthers could have the makings of another playoff run.

  Panthers | Ron Rivera: Protecting Cam Newton vital    Fri Feb 15, 12:26 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton should be ready for training camp, head coach Ron Rivera said Friday, Feb. 15, on ESPN. Rivera also stressed the need to protect Newton better with the quarterback recently undergoing shoulder surgery, and the coach said the Panthers will use both free agency and the draft, if necessary, to shore up the team's offensive line.

Footballguys view: Rivera says this now that Newton is already hurt. The shoulder problems plagued Newton in 2018 and he certainly wasn't himself when he did play. Newton had shoulder surgery in January that actually revealed less damage than originally feared. The Panthers will ease him into action this offseason, likely some time around training camp.

There is growing optimism that Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) may be able to participate in organized team activities in May, since his rehab from right shoulder surgery is going well, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Footballguys view: The original fear was that Newton might miss the entire 2019 season. That's long gone now and things continue to get more optimistic about Newton's return. Even if he can physically participate in OTAs this spring, we expect the Panthers to limit their superstar quarterback.

  Panthers | Cam Newton admits he was limited    Thu Feb 7, 01:02 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) on Thursday, Feb. 7, unveiled a YouTube video channel containing a post about his late-January arthroscopic procedure on his throwing shoulder. In the post, Newton says he couldn't throw the ball 30 yards late in the season, but was determined to keep playing. 'I felt like defenses were exposing me because I couldn't throw the ball down field,' Newton said in the video post. 'Not being in a position physically to be able to make the throws that you know you're capable of making, that was the disheartening thing of the whole year.''

Footballguys view: There's nothing to admit, everyone who watched Newton this year could tell something was bothering him. After surgery on his shoulder, Newton should be better in 2019. The Panthers will wisely ease him into any sort of action this offseason, likely waiting until training camp to get him on the field.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is not guaranteed to play at all in 2019 as the team considers all of its options regarding his injured shoulder. Per ESPN.com's David Newton, the organization has been in discussions with medical personnel on the best plan to strengthen the shoulder - whether that's with rest or another surgery.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on this situation closely as the offseason rolls along. A surgery opens the possibility Newton could miss a season - just as Andrew Luck did in 2017 - after undergoing surgery on his throwing shoulder.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton's (shoulder) offseason recovery remains unclear as team owner David Tepper admitted he has 'no idea' if Newton will have surgery.

Footballguys view: Newton is going to try and rest the shoulder to get back to full strength...or at least as close to full strength as he can. He's had shoulder surgery before and needs to be healthy in order to perform at his best. We give him a ton of credit for his toughness, but playing with this shoulder injury has not lead to the best production (or wins) for the veteran quarterback.
