NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Panthers QB Cam Newton aggravated his foot injury in Thursday night's loss to the Bucs and that his status for Week 3 is "up in the air." We'll keep tabs on Newton throughout the week, but he shouldn't be in your Week 3 fantasy plans. On top of struggling as a passer, Newton isn't running. He has 5 carries for negative 2 yards through 2 games -- and the foot injury is likely to blame. QB Kyle Allen will start for Carolina against the Cardinals on Sunday if Newton can't.
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.
