News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 21): Newton has shed his walking boot and could be ready to return this week to face the 49ers. He has always been a strong QB1 when healthy, the only question is when he will be healthy. The team is still very likely to go back to him when he is 100% despite Kyle Allen's undefeated record as a starter.
General News (Mon Oct 21): 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.

2019 Week 2 vs TB (25 / 51 / 333 / 0 / 0 pass, 2 / 0 / 0 rush)
Cam Newton started the game confidently, using play action to create clearer throwing windows to D.J. Moore and Greg Olsen. Newton ran the ball on a fourth down play early in the game, with a pitch option to Moore built in, but he was ruled short of the first down after a measurement. That setback seemed to be a kick in the teeth for the momentum of the offense. Newton picked himself back up, chucking a beautiful deep pass down the left sideline to a waiting Curtis Samuel for 44 yards. Things began to turn soon after, with Newton missing some easy throws, either throwing too high or too short of the target. The offensive line began to surrender pressure, with left tackle Daryl Williams in particular bearing the brunt of the Tampa Bay pass rush. At times Newton didn't even have two seconds to survey the field. Newton's connection with Greg Olsen on intermediate shots gave the offense some much-needed life, but a combination of Newton holding the ball too long and pressure quickly killed the momentum. An interception to a linebacker in underneath coverage was, fortunately for Newton, called back due to a defensive penalty ñ though it appeared pressure forced a quicker release than he would liked on the play. On the very next play, however, Newton had the ball knocked out of his hands after a strange read option keeper, with the Bucs jumping on it. Newton's accuracy deteriorated as the pressure increased; he nearly threw another pick on a hopeful pass down the middle with no receiver in the area. A crucial third down play late in the game saw him throw an easy pass behind Samuel, who was running a shallow cross. With only a five-man rush, Newton appeared to rush the throw and not set his feet properly. The play was emblematic of his evening's work.
2019 Week 1 vs LAR (25 / 38 / 239 / 0 / 1 pass, 3 / -2 / 0 rush)
Cam Newton's first real game action since last season started off encouragingly, with a beautiful completion from the left hash to the right sideline on a comeback route to D.J. Moore. The offense seemed to be energised by that moment, but things bogged down soon after. A play fake was botched as Newton faked to the right when the backs had veered left, then a touch pass to Moore was thrown too far in front for him to haul in. Newton's old demons haunted him again as the game progressed, with passes sailing ahead of receivers and taking potentially explosive plays off the board. He managed to re-establish his rapport with Greg Olsen on some short to intermediate throws, but he let a few get away from him with inaccurate passes. The team's second turnover of the game was partially Newton's fault, a pass into the left flat to Moore being thrown backwards, making it a fumble. Moore was unable to corral it, but it appeared the pass should have been thrown out in front of Moore so that he could run behind the blocks set up for a screen. Newton missed Curtis Samuel and Olsen on critical third down plays; on both occasions the passes were outside of the catchable range. Newton threw a pick late in the game, with LB Cory Littleton reading his eyes and breaking on a pass intended for Olsen. To his credit, Newton made the eventual tackle to prevent a touchdown.
