Bill Belichick on Cam Newton: If there’s an adjustment we need to make, we’ll make it

USA Today Sports

Patriots quarterback Cam Newton appeared on the injury report for the first time this season on Wednesday, as he was limited in practice with an abdomen injury.

But as you might expect, head coach Bill Belichick did not have much to say about the injury and Newton’s game status on Thursday morning.

“We’ll update it throughout the week here, and depending on how it goes, if there’s an adjustment we need to make, we’ll make it,” Belichick said, via Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald.

Newton missed New England’s Week 4 loss to the Chiefs due to COVID-19, but has started the team’s other 10 games this season. The Patriots will take on the Chargers in Los Angeles before staying in Southern California to face the Rams at SoFi Stadium the following Thursday.

  1. The broncos played a few QBs on Sunday that would be an upgrade. Go get one of those = adjustment

  2. What is there – a pool among the reporters on which answer BB will give to an injury report question?

  3. Many players, including ones who were already probowlers, have said that listening as and learning from Belichick and his staff had made them better players. Cam appears to be an exception. Anyone see much improvement in Cam where it counts? His abilities as a pocket passer has not improved one iota. His days as a starter for a team that is not seriously dis functional is over.

  4. If the Patriots have to start any of their backup QBs they are in deep trouble.
