Cam Newton limited with lingering shoulder injury

Panthers quarterback Cam (not Campbell) Newton has been dealing with a right shoulder issue in recent days. He still is.

Newton was limited in practice on Wednesday, only two days after playing at Washington and three days before a Christmas Eve game against the Falcons.  He had an MRI last week, and at times on Monday night seemed to be favoring his right arm.

While the Panthers have a convoluted path to the postseason, their division rivals badly need a win.

Carolina players missing practice included defensive end Charles Johnson (hamstring) and tight end Greg Olsen (elbow). Receiver Kelvin Benjamin was also limited with a back injury.

    I hate Cam Newton.


    Very honest of you to say that. If Brady were as honest as you, he never would have gotten the 4-game suspension for deflating footballs. Honesty is a virtue, as is evident by the light penalty the Giants were given for using walkie-talkies. The Giants were very classy throughout the entire issue.

  2. Cam the sham poutin newton…how glorious to see you choke on your ego.
