Panthers | Cam Newton wearing flak jacket

Mon, 01 Sep 2014 11:59:14 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs) is wearing a flak jacket to get used to it for the season, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Rivera said Newton is still sore but not as much as he used to be.

Fantasy Tip: It's good news that Newton isn't as sore as when the injury first happened. It's to be expected that Newton would wear some kind of protection around his ribs. This should be encouraging despite the fact he's still sore.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs) is participating in practice Monday, Sept. 1. Newton is wearing an oversized flak jacket to help protect his fractured ribs.

Fantasy Tip: Newton should play Week 1 if he does not suffer a setback during the week. Owners should consider Newton as a low-end No. 1 quarterback or could keep him on the bench if they have a better option at the position.

Panthers | Cam Newton expects to play

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 21:47:58 -0700

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs) said Wednesday, Aug. 27, that he will be ready for the regular season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers despite fracturing his ribs last week. "There's no doubt in my mind," Newton said.

Fantasy Tip: If Newton is unable to play, Derek Anderson would likely get the start. For now, Newton is a risky play for the regular season opener, and he could easily have a setback if he is hit the wrong way in Week 1. Fantasy owners should try to have plenty of depth on hand if they have already drafted Newton, or plan to do so.

Panthers | Cam Newton won't be limited

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 14:09:15 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs) will not be running a limited offense due to his rib injury. The team will still run the zone read.

Fantasy Tip: While this should be considered good news, Newton is still a risky Week 1 play because of questions at wide receiver as well as his health. Be cautious on draft day if Newton is still on the board.

Panthers | Cam Newton will be ready

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 09:33:16 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (rib) said he fully expects to be ready to play Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has a little over a week to recover from his rib injury, which should be enough time. Owners probably should not consider using Newton in Week 1 because of the questions at wide receiver, and he is facing a solid Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense.

Panthers | Cam Newton undergoes X-rays

Sat, 23 Aug 2014 09:11:35 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) suffered a back contusion during the third preseason game, but X-rays on the back came back negative, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Rivera is confident that Newton will be fine.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Newton suffered a minor injury during the game, but there is a chance he sits out the final preseason game. Newton probably will be a low-end starting quarterback in most leagues because of the question marks the team has at wide receiver.

Panthers | Cam Newton not at 100 percent

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 14:20:50 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle), who is expected to play a quarter in his first preseason action against the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Aug. 17, said he still is at less than 100 percent healthy. "The thing that keeps coming back up is, 'Keep treating it. Treat it when it feels good, treat it when it feels bad. Don't be that guy that only treats it when it's nagging. Try to stay ahead of the pain,'" Newton said. "That's what I've been doing, and it's been paying off." Head coach Ron Rivera said the team will not run any read-option plays against the Chiefs this weekend. Newton took part in every drill in practice Thursday, Aug. 14, and Rivera was encouraged by Newton's performance in the hurry-up offense.

Fantasy Tip: Newton probably isn't far off 100 percent health, but he's taking things slowly and being cautious in the preseason. He remains a risky and overvalued quarterback in drafts this year. Without much to work with at receiver, Newton's numbers could easily suffer drastically in 2014.
