Sam Darnold back at practice Wednesday

Panthers QB Sam Darnold (shoulder) has been designated to return from IR and will practice on Wednesday, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Darnold has been out since fracturing the scapula in his right shoulder back in Week 9. HC Matt Rhule said earlier this week that Darnold might get back into the mix down the stretch, so we'll see where this goes.

The Panthers are not expecting to get QB Sam Darnold (shoulder) back this season, a source tells ESPN's Adam Schefter. HC Matt Rhule said earlier this week that Darnold could be back in 4-6 weeks, but it sounds like that was optimistic. QB Cam Newton is expected to start Week 11 and will likely be under center the rest of the season.

The Panthers placed QB Sam Darnold (shoulder) on IR. He'll miss at least the next 3 games but is expected to be sidelined for 4-6 weeks. Carolina gave QB Cam Newton $4.5 million guaranteed for the rest of this season, so don't be surprised if Darnold doesn't get the starting job back.

Patriots QB Cam Newton is expected to handle a "full complement of reps" at minicamp this week, according the The Boston Globe's Jim McBride. Newton suffered a bone bruise to the right hand at OTAs a couple of weeks ago, but it's obviously not a concern. Early reports out of New England have Newton a strong favorite to open the season as the starter, ahead of 1st-round rookie QB Mac Jones.

Patriots QB Cam Newton suffered a "slight bone bruise" to his right hand when he banged it on a helmet at OTAs on Friday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "Not considered major at all," Rapoport adds. But Newton might not hit the practice field again until training camp. That'll give 1st-round rookie QB Mac Jones a chance to build some momentum.
