Draft Scout News
09/07/14 - QB Cam Newton was inactive for the Panthers' season-opening 20-14 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday, though he did try to lobby his way into the starting lineup as late as Saturday night. Coach Ron Rivera said Newton was unhappy and "wants to play in the worst way," and he should be able to do so in Week 2 after giving the rib injury he sustained in the preseason another week to rest. Asked specifically if Newton would return next week, Rivera said, "Yes, I am expecting him to be ready to play."
09/03/14 - QB Cam Newton was the only player on the Panthers injury report on Wednesday. Newton did not participate, and his status for the opener is murkier than it had been. He is still very sore after cracking his ribs less than two weeks ago against the Patriots, but head coach Ron Rivera is still hopeful Newton will start Sunday in Tampa Bay.
09/01/14 - QB Cam Newton returned Monday, nine days after cracking a rib against the Patriots. Newton went through a full practice while wearing a bigger flak jacket with extra padding.
08/29/14 - QB Cam Newton, who is nursing a hairline fracture in his ribs, will be re-evaluated before the team's Saturday walk-through. He is expected to play in Week 1.
08/26/14 - QB Cam Newton has watched three straight practices, but each day he appears to be moving around better. Newton suffered a hairline fracture in his rib Friday against the Patriots, but he will likely play in the Panthers season opener.
QB Matt Blanchard, who suffered a concussion Friday, was placed on injured reserve.
