Cam Newton cleared for action
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Thursday that quarterback Cam Newton has been cleared for training camp. Newton has come back from offseason ankle surgery that cost him nealry all of his practice time.

"He's bouncing around," Rivera said per the team website. "I'll be glad to see him out there tomorrow."

Cam Newton's mobility still limited
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Despite working out with his receiving corps during his time off before training camp, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was still limited in his movement and isn't 100 percent yet, according to the Charlotte Observer. Newton had major ankle surgery in March and has needed all offseason to rehab from it. 

Per the paper, the Panthers will try to balance Newton's reps in practice with keeping his ankle in as good of shape as possible. The team intends to use training camp as the time for him to get on the same page as his receivers, and for Newton to be ready to roll for Week 1 at Tampa Bay.

Cam Newton working with new receivers
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is running a three-day training session for the team's quarterbacks and receivers in Greensboro, N.C., reports the Charlotte Observer.

The group includes Newton, two other quarterbacks, nine receivers and one tight end. Of the 13 players there, no one other than Newton threw or caught a pass for the Panthers in the 2013 regular season, which means Greg Olsen is not in attendance.

Newton, close to but still not 100 percent on his surgically repaired ankle, has missed nearly all of the offseason workouts while rehabbing and has not been able to throw as much as he would like with his brand-new receiving corps, which includes rookie Kelvin Benjamin and veterans Jerricho Cotchery and Jason Avant.

"We're trying to fill in the question marks, and it starts with these days," Newton said. "No distractions."

Panthers WRs set to catch Cam Newton's passes soon

The Panthers open training camp on July 26 but the receivers will begin working with quarterback Cam Newton next week in Charlotte, wideout Tiquan Underwood told USA Today on Thursday. 

"It's been more difficult because Cam's coming off an ankle injury and he had to get surgery, so we couldn't throw with him as much as we would like," Underwood said. " ... We're just going to try to speed up the process. We're all going to throw -- Derek Anderson, Cam Newton, Joe Webb, Matt Blanchard and all the receivers -- just to work on timing and get that down pat before camp."

Newton has barely practiced with his receivers this offseason as he's recovered from ankle surgery. Nearly all of his receivers are new to the Panthers -- Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant and Underwood all signed as free agents while Kelvin Benjamin was taken with the team's first-round pick.

Any chemistry Newton can develop with his receivers before camp starts would be considered a huge plus for the Panthers offense.

Cam Newton says he's been cleared
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton posted on his official Facebook page last week that he's been cleared to work out, though he added that he's not quite at 100 percent. He does expect to be ready for the start of training camp. Newton had offseason ankle surgery that sidelined him for pretty much the entire spring.
