  Panthers | Cam Newton to have surgery    Wed Dec 4, 10:29 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) plans to have surgery to repair the Lisfranc injury in his foot. Recovery time is two to three months, which will allow him to be healthy by March.

Footballguys view: It's interesting that Newton has surgery now instead of earlier this year. He tried to recover with surgery but that was not working. Newton has one year left on his contract but should be ready for offseason work in 2020.

  Panthers | Cam Newton may opt for surgery after all    Sun Nov 10, 09:50 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) is considering undergoing surgery on the Lisfranc injury in his foot, according to multiple sources. The procedure could come within the next two weeks and would require two to three months of recovery time.

  Panthers | Cam Newton to IR    Tue Nov 5, 01:52 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Nov. 5, which will end his season.

Footballguys view: Newton's Lisfranc injury was not getting better as the season wore on. He met with foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson last week and didn't receive good news on his recovery. Kyle Allen continues as the starter for the team, and we may have seen the last of Newton in Carolina. He's owed a non-guaranteed $19.1 million in 2020.

  Panthers | No timetable for Cam Newton's return    Sun Nov 3, 11:04 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) will remain sidelined for at least a few more weeks due to a Lisfranc injury, although no official timetable has been established for his return. According to multiple sources, Newton is not under consideration to undergo surgery and hopes that continuing to rest will allow the injury to heal.

Footballguys view: Injured reserve is a possibility here, and Newton is probably not worth holding onto in redraft leagues at this point. Kyle Allen will remain the Panthers starter for the foreseeable future.

  Panthers | Cam Newton not practicing     Wed Oct 23, 12:18 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) is out of practice Wednesday, Oct. 23, as expected.

Footballguys view: There's a lot riding on the Week 8 matchup against the 49ers. The Panthers have been winning with backup quarterback Kyle Allen, but they have a huge test against the 49ers defense this week. So long as the team is winning, there's no need to rush Newton back out there. If things go a different direction and the team starts to struggle, then we'll see Newton back in action as the team's starter.

  Panthers | Cam Newton will not practice    Mon Oct 21, 04:21 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) will not participate in practice this week and will work with the trainers on the sidelines. Head coach Ron Rivera said he is not sure if Newton will travel with the team for the Week 8 game.

Footballguys view: Newton would face Tennessee in Week 9 if he gets the start. It sounds like the team is taking it extremely slow with him, which makes sense since they are undefeated since Kyle Allen took over. Most expect Newton will be the starter as soon as he is healthy.

Footballguys view: The Panthers offensive line will be missing a few performers and Little being back in concussion protocol is worrisome after a good performance last week. The Jaguars will try to exploit the absences on the line this week.

  Panthers | Cam Newton hid severity of foot injury    Sat Sep 28, 12:31 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) indicated in a video blog released Friday, Sept. 27, that he concealed the severity of the foot sprain he suffered in the third preseason from the Panthers coaching staff. He added that he has decided to 'take time away from the game,' and gave out multiple lengths for a possible return that ranged from one week to six.

Footballguys view: The Panthers move on with Kyle Allen as their starter. Newton insists he will not play unless at 100 percent, so he could be out six weeks as he deals with what has been described as a 'mild' Lisfranc injury.

  Panthers | Carolina's injury report for Week 4    Fri Sep 27, 04:42 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton and OG Trai Turner (ankle) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 4 against the Houston Texans.

TE Greg Olsen (back), LB Shaq Thompson (knee), S Rashaan Gaulden (groin) and DT Gerald McCoy (knee) fully participated in practice Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Turner is the team's best guard, Jackson their best corner, and Short a key member of the defensive line. The Panthers are feeling good after getting their first win, but will be shorthanded at Houston Sunday. Will Fuller is a big winner if Jackson is out.

  Panthers | Cam Newton out indefinitely    Tue Sep 24, 10:17 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) is out indefinitely with a Lisfranc injury in his foot.

Footballguys view: Reports coming out of Carolina suggest that surgery will not be an option here. That means Newton could miss anywhere from 4-8 weeks as he recovers. The Panthers have a bye in Week 7, and they might not bring Newton back after that. We'll see how he progresses and if they feel like a return in November is possible. Kyle Allen continues as the starter for the Panthers.

  Panthers | Cam Newton ruled out for Week 4    Mon Sep 23, 12:14 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) will not play in Week 4 against the Houston Texans.'What Cam needs right now is time and rest for his foot. We want him at 100 percent when he's ready, so there's no exact timetable for his return. At this point, we're going to go forward with Kyle (Allen) as our starter,' head coach Ron Rivera said.

Footballguys view: That's quick, but the team needs to do everything possible to make sure that Newton is as close to 100 percent as he can be before his return. Allen had a good debut for the Panthers on Sunday. He threw for four touchdowns in the Panthers 38-20 victory over the Cardinals in Week 3.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) on Friday, Sept. 20, was ruled out of the team's Week 3 game against the Arizona Cardinals, and will be replaced by Kyle Allen.

Footballguys view: Newton isn't a sure thing for Week 4 and it's possible we don't see him until after the team's Week 7 bye. He's not an essential hold in short bench leagues with his poor performance turning him into a fantasy liability in the first two games.

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.

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.

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.
