Panthers QB Cam Newton won't play tomorrow afternoon against the Titans, but he's on track for Carolina's 3rd preseason game next week, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Newton's rehab from throwing-shoulder surgery has gone slowly (by design) but smoothly. "Cam is throwing more each day, and he feels fine," Pelissero added. We're looking forward to seeing him in action next week.

Panthers QB Cam Newton threw in Wednesday's training camp session. He threw with teammates earlier this month, but this was his 1st time chucking it around in a formal practice since undergoing shoulder surgery in March. "Another step in the process,'' Newton said. "It's a start. Everything felt good, but we have a long way to go to get where I know we can be." Barring a setback, the shoulder shouldn't be an issue by the time Week 1 rolls around.

Panthers QB Cam Newton will throw to some teammates next week. He missed offseason workouts after undergoing surgery on his throwing shoulder in March. "The biggest thing is just getting on the same page where everybody is in sync," said RB Christian McCaffrey, who will attend the workouts. "Nobody is worried about Cam. He’s going to be just fine. He’s a helluva player, a helluva athlete. He’ll adjust real quickly." We'll be monitoring Newton when training camp opens, but it's looking more and more like the shoulder will be a non-issue by the time Week 1 rolls around.

Panthers QB Cam Newton said he’s “hands down” the thinnest he’s been at this point in any offseason. "I don't want to lose strength, and it's not me wanting to lose weight to become faster," Newton said via Carolina’s official site. "It's me realizing I'm not that same 21-year-old that came into this league that can eat a bag of gummies and then go out and play four quarters of football.” Now 28, Newton’s looking to rebound from an ugly 2016 that included career lows in completion rate and yards per attempt.

Panthers QB Cam Newton resumed throwing last week for the 1st time since March 30 surgery on his throwing shoulder, according to the team website. Newton said the joint is not yet 100%, citing stiffness. But he also said "there's no doubt" he'll be 100% by training camp. If Newton's fantasy value relied more heavily on his passing, we might be more concerned with this situation. But accuracy has never been a strong point for the star QB. The biggest issue here might be the threat of further hits on the repaired joint. Of course, we've baked the general injury risk of Newton's running into his ranking. We'll see how his summer goes.

Injury Predictor

He might not be Superman, but Cam plays a physical brand of QB — and still stays on the field. He’s only missed 3 regular season games in 6 years. And his worst injury was in college: An ankle injury that knocked him out for the entire 2008 season. Heading into 2017, Cam had offseason surgery in late March to repair a partially torn rotator cuff in his (right) throwing shoulder. He’ll likely sit out the preseason, but should be ready for Week 1 if there are no setbacks to his rehab.
