Report: Panthers QB Cam Newton medically cleared to start


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has been medically cleared to play in Week 16, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. He'll be in the starting lineup for Sunday's pivotal clash against the Browns, just 11 days removed from a car accident in which he suffered two small fractures in his back.

Newton was unable to play the previous due to the injuries he suffered in the collision. Through 12 games, Newton has passed for 2,812 yards with 16 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He has rushed for 425 yards and three touchdowns on 85 carries.

He was officially ruled as probable leading up to Week 16. Carolina has moved from a 3-point to a 4-point favorite at home against Cleveland.


Panthers waiting on doctors before naming Cam Newton starter


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2014) Panthers coach Ron Rivera told reporters he will not name a starting quarterback on Friday, but was impressed with the way Cam Newton practiced this week, per the team's official website. "We'll have a good feel tomorrow," Rivera said, who is waiting for doctors to officially clear Newton.

Newton sat out Week 15 after suffering two small fractures in his back when he was involved in a car crash 10 days ago. He's officially ruled as probable for Sunday's game against Cleveland. Carolina has moved from a 3-point to a 3 1/2-point favorite at home in Week 16.


Ron Rivera: QB Cam Newton 'on target' to start Sunday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) Panthers coach Ron Rivera told reporters that quarterback Cam Newton did every drill in Thursday's practice and is "on target" to start Sunday against the Browns. Rivera indicated Newton probably will start but said he did not want to get ahead of himself and noted there's still a lot of time until kickoff.

Newton sustained two small fractures in his back when he was involved in a car crash nine days ago. On Wednesday he split reps with Derek Anderson, and on Thursday, Newton handled the bulk of the first-team snaps.

Newton has accounted for 19 touchdowns and 16 turnovers in 12 games. With Newton now fully expected to play, the Panthers have been installed as 3-point favorites at most Vegas sportsbooks.


Cam Newton: 'I'm fine either way it goes'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Newton suffered two small fractures in his lower back in a car crash nine days ago. He took most of the first-team reps Thursday, ahead of Derek Anderson. The Panthers likely won't announce a starter until Friday at the earliest.

"The truth of the matter is, whoever gets the start, the team is going to back 100 percent," Newton said.

A car accident nine days ago left Newton with two fractures in his lower back. He sat out Week 15 and watched Anderson throw for 277 yards and a touchdown in a win over Tampa Bay.

Newton will address the media later on Thursday. Coach Ron Rivera has said he hopes to name a starter Friday for Sunday's game against Cleveland.

"He threw the ball well but it is about [how he feels] tomorrow," Rivera told reporters.

Newton and Derek Anderson split reps, and Newton didn't complain about any pain, per the Associated Press. Anderson subbed for Newton against Tampa Bay and threw for 277 yards and a touchdown in a 19-17 win.

Carolina hosts the Browns on Sunday. Las Vegas sportsbooks have pulled this game off the board until they know whether Newton will start. Newton will address the media Thursday.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Panthers QB Cam Newton running and throwing at practice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton "looked good running around and throwing during the portion of practice open to the media," reports the Charlotte Observer. During one drill, Newton threw a 60-yard pass that wideout Stephen Hill could not run down, the report said.

It remains unclear how much Newton will do at practice. He's recovering from a car accident in which he suffered two transverse fractures in his back.

Carolina hosts the Browns on Sunday. If Newton is able to play, Derek Anderson would go back to the bench.

Vegas sportsbooks took the game off the board until they know whether Newton will play.


Report: Panthers' Newton able to work out, plans to throw Tuesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was able to work out on an underwater treadmill Monday and perform some rotational excercises, according to ESPN reporter Ed Werder. The Panthers hope to have Newton throw Tuesday and evaluate where he is physically. 

Newton, who is recovering from two transverse fractures in his back after a car accident last week, has thrown for 2,812 yards and 16 touchdowns this year.

Panthers not ready to provide timetable for Cam Newton's return


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Monday he has no update on the progress of star quarterback Cam Newton's back injury, per the Associated Press.

"The biggest factor on playing Cam will be if he can protect himself," Rivera said.

Newton suffered two transverse fractures in his back during a two-car collision last week. Derek Anderson led the Panthers to a 19-17 victory over Tampa Bay on Sunday, and following the game Rivera said it was too soon to determine if quarterback Cam Newton (back) would return to action Week 16 against the Browns.

On Monday, he said there is a plan in place for Newton and that the goal is to get him back on the practice field "when he's ready."

"I don’t want to put a guy out there that can’t protect himself," Rivera said, per the Charlotte Observer. "By that it’s being able to run out of the way, scramble out of the way, stay alive, keep the play alive by being able to get away. That’s all part of it. That’s all part of the decision that went into the first Tampa Bay game."

Cam Newton continues to confound


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/7/2014) Just when you think you have Cam Newton all figured out, the Panthers quarterback goes and does something like he did Week 14 at New Orleans, contributing four total touchdowns, three passing and one rushing, en route to a season-high 41 Fantasy points in standard CBSSports.com leagues.

And he did it against his longtime nemesis, the Saints. He was 10-of-28 passing for 151 yards and an interception against them in Week 9 and had averaged just 196.4 passing yards in six total meetings with them, throwing for six touchdowns with five interceptions. Granted, the Saints entered the day ranked 29th against the pass, so going strictly by the numbers, this performance -- or something like it -- was to be expected from Newton. But against a team he faces twice a year, you couldn't ignore the history.

More than anything, I chalk it up to inconsistency. Newton has rare talent -- the ability to make plays with both his arm and his legs -- but apart from his rookie season, he hasn't been able to deliver on it from one week to the next. In standard CBSSports.com leagues, he hasn't had back-to-back games with 20-plus Fantasy points this season. Even Shaun Hill has done that.

It's not really a matchups thing either. Newton was ugly at Minnesota in Week 13. In two-quarterback leagues, you'll take the good with the bad from him, but in leagues where you start just one player at the position, you need him to be consistent. He may have a favorable matchup Week 15 against Tampa Bay, but there's no trusting Newton down the stretch.


Panthers QB Cam Newton destroys Saints with arm, legs


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) In perhaps his finest performance of the season, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton engineered a dismantling of New Orleans on Sunday.

Newton required just nine throws in the second half after burying the Saints on 15 of 24 passing for 162 yards and two scores before intermission. He finished 21 of 33 for 226 yards and three touchdowns, including a 9-yarder to Kelvin Benjamin three minutes into the game and a 16-yarder to a wide-open Greg Olsen late in the second quarter to all but end the suspense.

The quarterback also killed the Saints on the ground with 83 yards on 12 carries. His 2-yard scoring run midway through the first quarter made it 17-0.

Newton will attempt to take his momentum and run with it next Sunday against Tampa Bay.
