A video on the new YouTube channel of Panthers QB Cam Newton brought encouraging details on his January shoulder surgery. Newton had arthroscopic "irrigation" and "debridement" on his right (throwing) shoulder, and the cartilage damage was apparently fairly minor. “That cartilage damage was not as extensive as we had feared. It was definitely there. We knew that,” team doctor Pat Connor said. “It was pretty small. So if we get that (range of) motion back and keep it, I think we’ll be pretty good.” The Athletic's Joseph Person also talked with longtime Chargers team doctor David Chao, who said the same thing about restoring range of motion. That will be a key thing to watch for in reports through the spring and summer. Don't overrate the shoulder issue and sell off Newton cheaply in dynasty this offseason. As for his redraft -- and general 2019 -- outlook, we'll see how the rehab goes.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) is expected to be ready to practice after the Week 7 bye. Carolina has gone 4-0 under QB Kyle Allen, although his play has been uneven. We'll see if Newton is ready to return for Week 8 against the 49ers -- and then if the Panthers go back to him.
Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) won't travel with the team to London and is out for Sunday's game against the Bucs, HC Ron Rivera said Tuesday. Newton is reportedly out of his walking boot, so a Week 8 return (after a Week 7 bye) seems possible. QB Kyle Allen gets another start this weekend and is a viable starter vs. Tampa's 27th-ranked QB defense.
The Athletic's Joseph Person hears that Panthers QB Cam Newton is dealing with a Lisfranc injury. That's much more significant than just a sprained foot. Person notes that the timetable for return for Lisfranc injuries tends to be in the 4-8 week range. The Panthers have a Week 7 bye, so we're now expecting Newton to be sidelined until at least Week 8. We'll continue to keep a close eye on him, but he's droppable in shallower fantasy leagues.
The Panthers have ruled QB Cam Newton (foot) out for Sunday's game against the Texans. "We want him at 100 percent when he’s ready, so there’s no exact timetable for his return,” HC Ron Rivera said. It's a smart move by Carolina, especially after QB Kyle Allen's impressive Week 3 outing. Allen will be a deep-league spot-start option vs. Houston this week.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that there's a "real chance" Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) returns to practice on Wednesday. "He's day-to-day, not week-to-week," Rapoport adds. So this might end up being just a 1-game absence for Newton. We'll keep a close eye on his practice participation this coming week.
