  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.

  Panthers | Cam Newton starts to throw    Thu May 30, 08:44 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Just a personal day means no big deal here. Newton underwent shoulder surgery in January and wants to resume throwing before training camp. He has suffered no setbacks during his recovery but the Panthers are wisely being safe during his return.

  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.

  Panthers | Cam Newton making progress    Wed Apr 17, 06:00 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is making good progress in his recovery from shoulder surgery, but head coach Ron Rivera said there is no timetable for when Newton will be throwing at full strength.

Footballguys view: The Panthers will be wise and take it easy on Newton as he continues to progress. We imagine that at some point before training camp we'll have a better idea of his status.

  Panthers | Cam Newton progressing    Tue Mar 26, 02:22 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) has encouraged head coach Ron Rivera by the progress he has made in his recovery from shoulder surgery in January. 'I look forward to seeing him soon,' Rivera said, 'but just very happy that things are trending in the right direction.'

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.

  Panthers | Carolina could target veteran QB in FA    Mon Feb 11, 12:35 AM

  Panthers | Cam Newton rehab update    Sat Feb 9, 11:42 AM

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.

  Panthers | Cam Newton's shoulder improving    Thu Jan 31, 03:41 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) said he's greatly increased his range of motion in his throwing arm since undergoing surgery a week ago. He expressed his relief in his bothersome shoulder ailment being fixed. Newton is expected to make a full recovery in time for training camp.

Footballguys view: So far so good in the news about Newton's surgery. We'll be monitoring this closely and share Newton's relief that the issue was surgically repaired instead of just rested in the offseason.

  Panthers | Cam Newton feeling good    Wed Jan 30, 07:50 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) said his surgically repaired shoulder is feeling good.

Footballguys view: This is good news, but inconsequential until we see him on a field, which probably won't happen until the open of training camp at the earliest. The Andrew Luck saga has taught us to pay attention to everything, so this is still worth noting.

  Panthers | Cam Newton back by OTAs    Fri Jan 25, 08:12 AM

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is hopeful be back to throwing by organized team activities and ready for training camp.

Footballguys view: There was initial fear or concern that Newton would need to miss the entire 2019 season. After his surgery (a minor procedure), the reports are much more positive. We'll see the Panthers ease Newton back into action as we get into the spring and summer.

  Panthers | Surgery for Cam Newton    Thu Jan 24, 04:54 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) had arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder Thursday, Jan. 24.

Footballguys view: Newton was beat up in the 2018 season and missed two games as a result. Some speculate that Newton may need to take a year off to truly get healthy but a timetable for his return was not disclosed. This surgery was minor so now reports speculate that he'll be ready for the 2019 season. We'll know more about his status as his recovery rolls on.

  Panthers | Cam Newton in danger of missing 2019?    Tue Jan 15, 08:19 PM

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.

  Panthers | Surgery for Cam Newton?    Tue Jan 15, 05:46 PM

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.

The Carolina Panthers have declared DL Kawann Short, QB Cam Newton, CB Lorenzo Doss, WR Devin Funchess, OG Trai Turner, LB Efe Obada and TE Jason Vander Laan inactive for Week 17.

Footballguys view: Funchess will be inactive for what is likely his last game as a Panther. He should still get a solid payday in a thin free agent wide receiver market.

  Panthers | Cam Newton not going on IR    Wed Dec 19, 03:00 PM

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) will not be placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: Newton won't be playing in the final two games of the year and we are waiting to see if he needs another surgery on his injured shoulder. He finishes the 2018 season with 3,395 passing yards, 24 touchdowns and 13 interceptions...plus a career high 67.9 completion percentage. Taylor Heinicke will start the Panthers' final two games at quarterback with Newton done for the year.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is not practicing Wednesday, Dec. 19, and will not play again this season with the Panthers being out of playoff contention.

Footballguys view: A good move for the Panthers here. Newton just wasn't himself and it was painful just watching him try to throw the football with a messed up shoulder. We'll have to wait and see if this latest shoulder injury will require surgery. Taylor Heinicke will start the Panthers' final two games at quarterback with Newton done for the year.

  Panthers | Cam Newton battling chronic soreness    Tue Dec 18, 09:07 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) said he has been battling shoulder soreness that hasn't gone away or gotten worse for several weeks. 'It doesn't matter how much you push,' Newton said. 'Ice, anti-inflammatories you take... I mean, trust me, I did it. Acupuncture. Massages. It's just not been a time that (a) night has gone by without me getting some type of work done on my arm. We just don't have the strength, from the range of motion. Obviously my arm hasn't allowed me to do a lot of practice. I've been on a pitch count. That's not a scapegoat. That's not something I want people to bail me out on. It's just reality.'

Footballguys view: Newton just doesn't look like himself and the Panthers head coach Ron Rivera hasn't ruled out shutting down Newton for the season. The team should do what's best for Newton's long-term health and that could be ending his season on Injured Reserve. Stay tuned.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 26-of-42 passes for 265 yards, no touchdowns and an interception with 23 rushing yards in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Christian McCaffrey got the offensive touchdowns on the ground, and Newton wasn't able to consistently push the ball down the field. He didn't help fantasy teams and hasn't helped the Panthers during their five-game losing streak. He's not an automatic start and maybe not a QB1 against the Saints on Monday.

He's still a boom/bust QB1 with a big boom because of the matchup and his running ability. This is about as reassuring of news as we could have hoped for after more cautionary items earlier this week.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 25-of-30 passes for 256 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Week 12 game against the Seattle Seahawks and he added 63 yards rushing.

Footballguys view: Newton was highly efficient as a passer and clicked with Christian McCaffrey and DJ Moore. He also made a poor decision on a pass into double coverage at the goal line and the team couldn't score on early red zone possessions, which eventually cost them. He did more as a runner this week and still belongs on the short list of the top fantasy quarterbacks heading into a choice matchup with the Bucs. The Panthers are in must-win mode after losing their third in a row.
