Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said that quarterback Cam Newton is on track to play in Thursday's preseason game. What It Means: ESPN's David Newton also notes that Rivera likes what he saw out of his signal caller in today's practice. He had previously started throwing in team drills and is looking ready for the team's third preseason game in Jacksonville. Newton is almost certain to get less reps than most starters, but this should put all Week 1 worries to rest until further notice. Our models expect Newton to produce 19.5 fantasy points in Week 1 and 312.5 points...

The rookie defensive end suffered a left knee contusion, according to reports.

Cam Newton increased his workload at practice yesterday, taking part in every team drill

The Panthers’ MVP quarterback is one step closer to being ready for the 2017 season. According to Max Henson of Panthers.com, Newton took part in every drill at Panthers practice yesterday, moving him one step closer to his goal of being ready to play by the season opener at San Francisco on September 10. It was the most extensive work for Newton since the first week of training camp, before shoulder soreness limited his involvement. And late in practice, Newton uncorked a deep pass, which is something the Panthers have mostly held in check following his offseason shoulder surgery. -Max...

Panthers at Titans: Cam Newton will not play

The Carolina Panthers announced that quarterback Cam Newton will not play in Sunday’s contest. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero is reporting that the Panthers won’t end up playing Cam Newton on Sunday. Newton hasn’t thrown in a number of practices since training camp started due to his surgically repaired shoulder.

Panthers' Cam Newton (shoulder) out for Saturday's preseason game

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will not play in Saturday's preseason game, according to ESPN's Diana Russini. What It Means: Newton is still recovering from offseason shoulder surgery and hasn't been a full-go in practice as a result. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that he won't suit up for the team's second preseason game against the Tennessee Titans. Derek Anderson will again lead the ones on Saturday night. With the Panthers expecting Newton back and healthy for Week 1, we project him for 3,692.7 pass yards, 527.9 rush yards and 29.61 touchdowns in 2017. He's...

Mocking the Depth: Week 2 Panthers offense

A new look at the potential 53 man roster for the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers released their first unofficial depth chart not too long ago, but the only reason teams even do that is because the NFL forces them to.

Offensive Projection #1 Quarterbacks Starter: Cam Newton Backups: Derek Anderson, Joe Webb Cuts: Garrett Gilbert While this hasn’t changed much, it should be noted that Joe Webb has been having himself a fine preseason.
