  Panthers | Cam Newton expected to start    Mon Sep 1, 03:12 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs) is still expected to start Sunday, Sept. 7, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. The team needs Newton in order to compete at the highest level. They've been wisely cautious with their superstar quarterback as he deals with this rib injury.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs) is wearing a flak jacket to get used to it for the season, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Footballguys view: Rib injuries essentially come down to pain tolerance. Rivera said Newton is still sore but not as much as he used to be.

  Panthers | Stephen Hill to work out    Mon Sep 1, 12:36 PM

Free-agent WR Stephen Hill (Jets) is scheduled to work out for the Carolina Panthers Monday, Sept. 1, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Panthers are desperate for wide receiver help. Even though Hill was a bust with the Jets, he's still only 23-years old and has a great size/speed combination. He'll get a fresh start somewhere else, probably in some place like Carolina or Cleveland.

  Panthers | Practice squad signings    Mon Sep 1, 03:18 AM

The Carolina Panthers brought 10 players onto their practice squad on Sunday, Aug. 31. Players signed were CB Carrington Byndom, LB Adarius Glanton, WR Tavarres King, SS Robert Lester, WR Marcus Lucas, OT Andrew McDonald, RB Darrin Reaves, DT Micanor Regis, LB D.J. Smith and DT Casey Walker.

Footballguys view: The Panthers stole King off the Broncos practice squad last year, but they've not seen enough for him to make the final roster this season. We'll see if anyone else is interested in King.

  Panthers | Tavarres King cut    Sat Aug 30, 09:45 AM

The Carolina Panthers released WR Tavarres King.

Footballguys view: King was a fifth-round pick by the Broncos in 2013. He can eat cushion with his speed, and he's a better route-runner than some think. There's a team out there willing to take a chance on him. However, it looks bad that a team with a poor group of WRs like Carolina would let him go.

  Panthers | Might keep four tight ends    Fri Aug 29, 11:38 PM

The Carolina Panthers are deep at tight end, with starting TE Greg Olsen and reserve TEs Ed Dickson, Brandon D. Williams and Richie Brockel projected to make the final 53-man roster. In fact, if they keep four tight eneds, it would likely mean they keep eight offensive linemen instead of nine.

  Panthers | Mike McNeill might be cut    Fri Aug 29, 11:37 PM

  Panthers | Might not be settled at WR    Fri Aug 29, 11:36 PM

The Carolina Panthers will keep six wide receivers with WRs Jason Avant, Kelvin Benjamin, Brenton Bersin, Philly Brown, Jerricho Cotchery and Tavarres King as the projected members of the 53-man roster. The team could still look to pick up a receiver or kick returner off waivers after the final roster cuts Saturday, Aug. 30.

  Panthers | Joe Webb no longer expendable    Fri Aug 29, 11:30 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Joe Webb looked expendable until QB Cam Newton (ribs) suffered a fractured rib in the third preseason game. Now, head coach Ron Rivera appears fairly adamant the team will keep three quarterbacks until it is clear Newton is healthy, and maybe longer.

Footballguys view: Webb could make the 53-man roster, but later in the year the team might let him go if Newton is at full strength.

  Panthers | Cam Newton expects to play    Thu Aug 28, 12:47 AM

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs) said Wednesday, Aug. 27, that he will be ready for the regular season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers despite fracturing his ribs last week. 'There's no doubt in my mind,' Newton said.

Footballguys view: The ribs will be a long term concern as they are the sort of thing which can linger and cause issues down the road. However, we're happy to see that he will be ready to go Week 1. We have him as a borderline QB1 because of the issues at wide receiver, but his ability to run with the ball and overall skills make him a guy who will be able to overcome his surroundings and put fantasy points on the board.

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs) said Wednesday, Aug. 27, that he will be ready for the regular season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers despite fracturing his ribs last week. 'There's no doubt in my mind,' Newton said.

Footballguys view: Good news for Newton owners. There have been some concerns because of both the ribs and the lack of proven receivers. We still have him as a fringe QB1 as we believe he has the talent to overcome his surroundings. His ability to run the ball adds to his value as well.

  Panthers | Cam Newton won't be limited    Wed Aug 27, 05:09 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs) will not be running a limited offense due to his rib injury. The team will still run the zone read.

Footballguys view: The Panthers need to say that to deny the Bucs a tactical edge of not having to prepare for the zone read, but the Panthers would be smart to limit Newton's exposure so early in the season when he is not 100%.

  Panthers | Cam Newton will be ready    Wed Aug 27, 12:33 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (rib) said he fully expects to be ready to play Week 1.

Footballguys view: The Panthers may choose to call someone else's number at the goal line while Newton heals. He probably is not a good play with a brand new offensive line and set of receivers in week 1 at Tampa.

Carolina Panthers DEs Greg Hardy (shoulder) and Charles Johnson (hamstring) will not play in the team's final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 28, against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Rivera added that they should be ready for the regular season opener.

Footballguys view: We will see several starters sit in the final week of the preseason. The Panthers need these two to get ready for the start of the regular season. The final preseason game is mainly for guys on the roster bubble.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (rib) has a hairline fracture in one of his ribs and will not play in the final preseason game next week.

Footballguys view: The team will have to be careful here. Rib injuries come down to pain tolerance, so Newton will have to grin and bear it while he's recovering. Head coach Ron Rivera said he thinks Newton will be ready for Week 1.

The Carolina Panthers have released P Jordan Gay, DL Linden Gaydosh, DL Alex Hall, OL Oscar Johnson, LB Anthony Morales, WR Marvin McNutt, WR Kealoha Pilares and DL Craig Roh.

Footballguys view: McNutt might be able to find a spot on a practice squad somewhere. He's a big, physical receiver who can work as a red-zone threat. It's not a good sign that he couldn't make a WR-needy Panthers roster.

  Panthers | Cam Newton undergoes X-rays    Sat Aug 23, 12:11 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) suffered a back contusion during the third preseason game, but X-rays on the back came back negative, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Footballguys view: Rivera is confident that Newton will be fine, and fantasy owners should share that confidence. The Panthers' offense lacks weapons in the passing game, so Newton's numbers could fall in 2014. Right now, Newton is getting drafted at QB10 (8.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Panthers | Fozzy Whittaker in good shape    Tue Aug 19, 10:22 PM

Carolina Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker appears to be in good shape for winning a spot on the 53-man roster after the team traded RB Kenjon Barner to the Philadelphia Eagles Tuesday, Aug. 19.

Footballguys view: As with all of the Panthers backs, it is just about impossible to attain consistent weekly value, but Whittaker is a good all-around back who will help in case Jonathan Stewart can't stay healthy.
