Panthers' Cam Newton: Throwing to teammates again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newton (shoulder) has resumed throwing to his teammates, cementing the expectation that he'll be ready to do so when training camp begins, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Newton, who underwent surgery on his right shoulder back in March, began throwing for the first time since his operation nearly a month ago. While those tosses were stationary and to a team trainer, the Panthers quarterback has now advanced to working with his usual targets ahead of the start of camp July 26. Although Newton is expected to be limited as Carolina rightfully errs on the side of caution to start off, it's encouraging to hear that he's made such strong progress in his return.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Protection at a premium this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to coach Ron Rivera, Newton (shoulder) will have his rushing opportunities carefully managed by the Panthers this season, Sirius XM NFL Radio reports.

Newton underwent surgery in March to repair a partially torn rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder, and although he's on track to be cleared to throw to teammates when the Panthers open training camp, the team will understandably want to restrict his exposure to hits this season. As part of that initiative, Carolina overhauled its group of playmakers this offseason, most notably adding running back Christian McCaffrey and utility wideout Curtis Samuel with its first two draft picks. Along with being judicious in how Newton is used in the running game, the Panthers aim to protect him through passing plays designed to get the ball out of his hands early. Combined, those considerations will hopefully enable the still-recovering Newton to withstand the rigors of the upcoming campaign.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Begins throwing again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newton threw Monday for the first time since having offseason shoulder surgery, Bill Voth of reports.

Newton tossed 45 passes in total, throwing to Carolina's head athletic trainer from three different positions. The session took place in the Panthers' locker room, evidencing the baby steps required before Newton can take the field again. Following surgery on his partially torn right rotator cuff in late March, the quarterback said his range of motion hasn't fully returned yet, but Newton admitted it felt good to finally be able to throw again. In order to shake some of the stiffness in his arm, Newton is scheduled to continue one-on-one throwing sessions for the next four weeks, and if all goes according to plan, he'll be cleared to throw to teammates the day the Panthers open training camp on July 26.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Likely won't throw during minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newton (shoulder) is not expected to throw during this week's minicamp, NFL Network's Tiffany Blackmon reports.

Newton was originally expected to begin throwing at the Panthers' mandatory minicamp this week, but the team appears to be playing it safe with their quarterback's rehab process. Newton, who underwent surgery in late March to repair a partially torn rotator cuff, will likely stick to individual work on the side during minicamp. He remains on track for a return at the start of training camp in late July, but backup Derek Anderson will work with the first team in practice this week.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Will start throwing next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newton (shoulder) is expected to begin throwing again next week, Max Henson of reports.

Newton is working his way back after undergoing surgery March 30 to repair a partially torn rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder. That procedure coincided with a 12-week timetable to begin throwing on the sidelines, so Newton would be slightly ahead of schedule if he's able to do that activity next week. After four weeks of throwing on the side, Newton would then move on to throwing to teammates on the field, before eyeing a return for the start of training camp in July. As it stands, it seems that's a realistic expectation for Newton, but his progress will still need to be tracked throughout the summer, with a focus on his first throwing session next week.
