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' Trai Turner: Inks four-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turner signed a four-year, $45 million contract extension with the Panthers on Thursday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Turner, a 2014 third-round selection out of LSU, has played over 3,000 snaps with the Panthers' offensive line unit throughout his young career. His performance dipped in 2016 as he was forced to occasionally switch to right tackle due to injuries, but Turner has shown flashes of excellence and will look to return to that level throughout the next four years in Carolina.

Panthers' Michael Oher: Plans on reporting to training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oher (concussion) plans on reporting to training camp in late July, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

Oher has been subject to the league's concussion protocol since September of 2016, missing the Panthers' final 13 games of the season as a result. He reported to the team's mandatory minicamp in June, but was unable to participate due to the concussion protocol. With Oher's future uncertain in Carolina, Daryl Williams and rookie Taylor Morton figure to compete for playing time at right tackle throughout the rest of the offseason, while newcomer Matt Kalil is slated to start at left tackle.

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.
