Patriots quarterback Cam Newton injured his hand during Friday’s organized team activity.

The good news: Newton’s hand is not broken, Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald reports. But Newton is undergoing further medical testing.

Newton injured his throwing hand during a positional drill.

Team physician Dr. Mark Price and head trainer Jim Whalen briefly examined Newton’s right hand, and the former NFL MVP talked with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and owner Robert Kraft before leaving the field, according to Guregian.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick named Newton the starter after the team drafted Mac Jones in the first round.

  1. Worst case almost. The one thing that guy needs to do is get the reps and improve his passing. Doing phantom reps will gain him nothing if he goes through the motions but has no ball to throw. Whatever the odds are for their first couple games they should worsen at least slightly. To start a year off this is bad Joo Joo for the Patriots.

  2. This is fantastic news for more DESERVED reps for Jones/Stidham.

    Very exciting news!

  3. Cam couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn last year. If they get Mac in there now with the first team, all the better.

  4. I’m a Pats fan and I’m LOL’ing at all the ‘Uh Oh’ comments. Cam couldn’t throw a decent ball AT ALL last year. He also was the least accurate passer at the most recent team activities. So it’s not like he was gonna come out this year with a 75% completion percentage

  5. Predict the future by understanding why Hoyer is there.
    Veteran presence experienced with the offense and team.
    Past his starting window.
    Leaves opening for a young starter.
    Removes the need for a second veteran past his prime.
    Is that the equation?

  6. This is really bad news for the rest of the teams that play New England this year.

    It’s hilarious. I can smell the fear and self-convincing from here. Newton was the worst performing qb in a NE uni since Tommy Hodson in 1990. Hugh Millen threw a better ball with less talent.

    No more entitlement from Newton and BB loses his competition veteran bar. He knows he doesn’t have it with Hoyer, so hopefully Jones/Stidham keep it up.

    Preseason will show it all anyway. Newton will never look better than Jones or Stidham in preseason based on mechanics alone. Newton is a McDaniels toy anyway. Annoying, but the reality from a year ago.

  8. Any Pats fan who thinks Newton getting hurt is good for the team doesn’t understand a depth chart. He needs reps. If Jones beats him out that’s a positive but we need Cam to be healthy.

    Yes, Brady got his chance due to an injury to Bledsoe but Bledsoe won the AFCCG in Pittsburgh. Anyone that thinks Hoyer or Stidham is capable of that is kidding themselves.

  9. That’s why you don’t name a starter in the spring … unless there is a fragile ego being dealt with …. Newton, Rogers, etc ?.?.?.

  10. Well that was convenient. Cam was going to lose the starting job anyway, this just moves it further along and bumps up the inevitable.

    You flip flop more then a politician does.

  12. Stidham is the NFL record holder for fastest to 5 INTs to start a career, breaking Nathan Peterman’s mark.

    No thank you. Seen enough of that. We have a real QB with potential on the roster now.

    Stidham is not very good. Jones should get the reps.

  14. Did he hit his hand on a helmet? If so, they should be wearing those goofy looking soft-sided helmets the Vikes are wearing.

    This makes no sense. I’ve never liked Newton. Wow. The reading comprehension of some here is absolutely brutal. Brutal.

    Or, you don’t know what a flip flopper is. I want the ball out and accurately thrown on time to the right guy. Newton shows none of this.

    Stidham in preseason showed way more of that than Newton did all last year witn the the 1s ans two RBs averaging over 5 YPC each.

    He’s terrible.

    Wow. Another reading comprehension issue and a guy who missed Stidham as Brady’s lone back up in 2019.

    Was JimmyG “not very good” in 2014 when BB did that or did we not know? Stidham beat JimmyG’s 2014 preseason numbers.

    Please do not think you know more than BB.

    I said “Jones/Sridham”. Stidham would get more chances with Newton out. Hopefully this injury is worse than they are saying. Why Newton gets so much favoritism after such a poof performance is anyone’s guess.

  17. Word is Stidham was “excellent” with Newton out.

    Not surprising since Newton isn’t a very good passer. Some of us like science, reality and fact with a basic reading comprehension. lmao
