For Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, the new normal will be periodic limited practices, due to his shoulder. He was limited in practice on Wednesday due to both his shoulder and his ankle.

It’s unclear whether he was limited due to the shoulder that was surgically repaired earlier this year, or whether he was limited due to the rolling of the ankle that was surgically repaired in 2014.

Missing practice on Wednesday were receiver Kelvin Benjamin (knee), center Ryan Kalil (neck), and cornerback Daryl Worley (knee). Limited for the Panthers were defensive Vernon Butler (shoulder) and linebacker Jeremy Cash (calf).

The 2-0 Panthers host the 0-2 Saints on Sunday in Charlotte. Shoulder, ankle, or both, it would be a surprise if Newton doesn’t play.

  1. Running QB’s have pluses and minuses. Injuries are some of the minuses. Tom Brady and Peyton Manning could barely move, yet they’re winning super bowls. Carolina is in a mess that they’re not going to be able to get out of.

  2. Cam Newton doesn’t need to run to win, but he does need better protection and a schema that is designed to get the ball out quicker so he doesn’t take so much punishment.

    Those commenting how the Panthers offense is gimmicky are just showing their complete lack of knowledge of this team’s offense.

  3. The Gimmicks need to stop…lining CMC up as QB when every player on the field knows he is never going to throw is a gimmick play to get the ball in his hands because the guy with the big contract doesn’t have the basic fundamentals to throw a screen pass.
