Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is recovering well following surgery on his left ankle two weeks ago, his agent told the Charlotte Observer. The surgery was designed to tighten Newton's ankle ligaments.
"He's doing fine," agent Bus Cook said. "I mean, Cam's a big, strong, tough kid. So he'll be fine."
Newton will miss OTAs but should be back for training camp, the paper said.
Cardinals free safety Tyrann Mathieu, who tore his ACL and LCL in December, no longer needs a knee brace but has accepted the fact he won't be ready for training camp, reports the Arizona Republic. Mathieu has been rehabbing diligently and hopes to be ready for Week 1.
