Report: Newton expected back after bye week
ESPN’s Adam Shefter cited league sources today that Cam Newton has “healed well” from a foot injury and should return to practice following Carolina’s week off.
The 2015 league MVP has missed the past four games — all Panthers wins. Newton went 50 for 89 during Carolina’s 0-2 start with 572 yards and an interception.
Back-up Kyle Allen has gone completed 80 of 122 passes for 901 yards and seven touchdowns during that span, becoming the first QB to being his career 5-0 with no interceptions since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970. Allen also led the Panthers to a win in the 2018 season-finale against New Orleans.
