Sore shoulder keeps Cam Newton from throwing Tuesday

AP

The Panthers rested Cam Newton during the second half of their practice on Sunday because it was the end of a run of five practices in as many days and they wanted him to rest after having right shoulder surgery this offseason.

Carolina had a day off on Monday and Newton was on the field Tuesday, but he wasn’t back to a full workload. Newton took part in practice when he was able to go through drills without throwing the ball and coach Ron Rivera said that decision came after the quarterback reported shoulder soreness ahead of the workout.

“He started warming up this morning and said he still felt a little bit sore,” Rivera said, via the team’s website. “Why push it? Why have him throw with a sore arm and make it worse? It made no sense to have him throw with a sore shoulder.”

These are the sorts of bumps in the road that one would expect coming off of surgery and there’s been no sign of deeper worry about Newton this summer. That will likely change if he’s still taking limited part in practices later this month, but that’s something worth considering should it play out that way.

    When I see him all I can see is his turtle impression in the SB, can’t help it, sorry.

    ————-

    Sadly, so can the rest of his teammates

    The Panthers need a real leader.

  2. …his footwork is perfection.

    I know…did you see how he danced back from that fumble in SB 50? Like Fred Astaire…

  3. LOL the comments on this article make no sense they talking about a sore shoulder being rested and y’all bring up SB loss and leadership and fumbles. Did ANYONE watch the last SB?

  4. I’m not even a fan of the Carolina Panthers, but is anybody treated more unfairly, or with more unfounded criticism, than Cam Newton ? Give the guy a break already; he’s still one of the most talented and dangerous quarterbacks in all of football, and I’ll betcha he wins at least one championship before his career is over. I wish my team, the Miami Dolphins, had him.

    We are insinuating he is only concerned with himself and money instead of actually winning. And what does the last SB have anything to do with Cams scary self?

    Why should anyone give him a break? They guy gloated and show-boated plenty when the Panthers were beating up on lesser teams. And he ran away from a fumble in the biggest game of his life after Denver smacked him in the mouth. And then he pouted and refused to answer questions. He deserves everything he gets.

  7. This is the time to make business decisions. Not in the 4th quarter of the Super Bowl. He’ll never live that down and he shouldn’t.

    You are right, and here’s why. Everyone is all in on the fake Crimson Tide story that he got paid while playing at Auburn. The NCAA thought he did too, and spent a year trying to prove it. They couldn’t. But because the narrative got pushed so hard, everyone chose to believe the falsehoods instead of the truth. As such, they over-criticize everything he does, insisting he’s the only person who ever did end zone dances, the only one who has ever sulked on the sideline, the only one who didn’t cooperate with the media, the only one who has ever chosen not to make a hustle play when the game was decided (no, we had no shot to win when he fumbled; we were not going to go the length of the field against the Denver D that day), and on and on and on.

    All of these things have been happening on football fields for 130 years, but Cam has to be called out on them – all because the world went all in on the “guilty until proven innocent” mentality, and even when he was declared innocent, refused to accept it.

    Actually, I had no idea about that story at all. I just think he is absolutely obnoxious, egotistical, self centered, whiny, and unwilling to actually throw himself at the game (literally) to win. Not to mention his dancing is god awful.

  10. I like Cam but he does have some maturing to do still. He can be rah rah team, which is great, without being being a sore gloating winner. Also the choreographed celebrations for every successful play no matter the state of the game and his obsession with press conference outfits projects a sense that his priorities are not correct. However, he is really REALLY young and probably surrounded by sycophants so it’s no wonder he has some maturing to do. I think he will only get better as his career continues.

  11. It ceases to amaze me that so many will defend to a fare thee well anyone who belongs to their cultural group regardless of the transgression.

    Most reasonable folks won’t warm up to a guy who rubs it in your face when winning and hides when losing.

    Most players in the league come out of college very young and most don’t act like they’re on DWTS during a game. It’s called class and sportsmanship. I include gronk spikes in this as well. Unnecessary.

  13. The Broncos broke him, it’s been downhill ever since the SB. Next stop is early retirement.

  14. I would say he got that sore shoulder from dabbing too much, but he probably didn’t since he hasn’t accomplished anything since fumbling the ball in the Super Bowl and being too scared to fall on it. Sore shoulder? Maybe. Sore loser? DEFINITELY. #CryBabyCam

    (no, we had no shot to win when he fumbled; we were not going to go the length of the field against the Denver D that day), and on and on and on.

    ——

    And the Patriots were not going to come back from 25 points down with a couple of minutes left in the 3rd quarter.

    You see here is the difference. Cam gave up…..Brady didn’t. This is why Cam will never win a championship.

  16. He’s not supposed to use his shoulder when he’s jacking off the fan base. He needs to use more wrist. Now he’s got a bum shoulder to excuse upon when the season is dismal.

  17. Don’t remember anyone knocking Rodgers for his “championship belt” move.
    Don’t remember anyone talking trash about Manning taking self-sacks to preserve his body or commenting on the the fact he sulked under his helmet after a loss (wore a ball cap when he won).
    Don’t remember anyone talking about Brady and his screaming sideline fits.
