Panthers quarterback Cam Newton won't need foot surgery after meeting with foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson on Friday, according to ESPN's David Newton

There is no timetable for Carolina's QB to return to the field, per ESPN's Newton.

Newton hasn't played since Carolina's loss to the Buccaneers in Week 2. The 2015 NFL MVP went 0–2 as the Panthers' starter to kick off the season, completing just 56.2% of his passes while failing to throw a touchdown. 

Kyle Allen has logged five starts in Newton's place this season. Allen is 4–1 with 1,059 passing yards and seven touchdowns in 2019. He is in his second year with the Panthers.

Allen will look to bring the Panthers to 5–3 on Sunday as Carolina faces the Titans. Kickoff from Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte is slated for 1 p.m. ET.
