Panthers announce Cam Newton is cleared to play

The Panthers are ready to get the reigning league MVP back on the field.

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has been cleared to play on Sunday against the Saints, the team announced this afternoon.

Newton missed last week’s game against the Buccaneers after suffering a concussion the week before. Derek Anderson started in place of Newton, but now Anderson can go back to the sideline.

The 1-4 Panthers will be counting on a big game from Newton against a suspect Saints defense.

    Good! I just placed 5000 on the Saints. Would have pulled it had he sat out.

    Cam should customize his cleats with a Carolina Blue K & O on the bottom

    saints have the number 3 defense…if there were 3 teams in the league

    You can talk your trash all you want, but just don’t get in the redzone against the Saints. Seventh overall in red zone defense.

    As a serious Pats fan that lived through the Sullivan and Kiam years and never dreamed we would enjoy this level of success I would just like to say your posts are an insult to that user name and it’s a shame you are along for the ride.

    Did they say if he has any work restrictions, like he had in the SB when he was restricted from trying to recover his own fumbles? lol

    j/k … Cam’s a good presence. The league wouldn’t be the same without him.

  13. jackedupboonie says: Oct 15, 2016 7:12 PM

    He will go down as the only guy….who ran first…and made a Super Bowl. He is garbage as an actual QB

  14. jackedupboonie says: Oct 15, 2016 7:13 PM

    Hold on…..he gives balls to kids. That is HUGE!

  15. jackedupboonie says: Oct 15, 2016 7:16 PM

    We all want to give titles to him…..but he sucks.

  16. majormeatcurtains says: Oct 15, 2016 7:21 PM

    Finally. All his cleats are polished.

    Ummm. Water sustains life. Drowning will kill you.
    Cmon, thumbs up? Or down? Man.. How more people aren’t hit by cars…. SMH

    Who cares? Let him play. He is scared of contact unless it is a camera making love to him. This jerk is a major, on field, liability. Good luck with him!

  19. smokehouse56 says: Oct 15, 2016 7:56 PM

    Why such hate for Cam Newton? And I’m an Eagles fan.

  20. learysdisciples says: Oct 15, 2016 8:19 PM

    Wait…he gives his balls to kids?

  21. pantherfan4055 says: Oct 15, 2016 8:25 PM

    Aints are scared because they know cam owns them especially in the dome thats another how game for us

  22. 2dat says: Oct 15, 2016 8:43 PM

    Yeah just like he counted on a Circus Type Interception o a pass thrown by a Back Up QB last year in Carolina and a BS call on a 4th and 3 on a NON catch by Olsen that CLEARLY HIT THE GROUND to keep a game stealing drive alive in New Orleans….SMH

  23. nhpats says: Oct 15, 2016 8:46 PM

    1-4……big whoop…..

  24. lapantherfan86 says: Oct 15, 2016 11:52 PM

    Great…who’s excited for next season??

  25. pancaketaco says: Oct 16, 2016 11:21 AM

    Shula will run him with no lead blocker 9+ times.

    Panthers have to score 45 if they expect to win.
