Panthers' Cam Newton: Week 14 status uncertain
Newton (shoulder) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports. Afterward, Newton told Joe Person of The Athletic that he's "taking it day by day" to "be ready for Sunday" at Cleveland.
After Newton's four-interception performance Week 13 against the Buccaneers, coach Ron Rivera said the quarterback's throwing shoulder was feeling "a little bit sore," per Marcel Louis-Jacques of The Charlotte Observer. On Wednesday, Rivera wouldn't commit to Newton being available this Sunday. "We'll see," Rivera told Strickland. "We're not even to Friday yet." Based solely on his activity level at Wednesday's practice, Newton is following his regimen from previous weeks, but Rivera's comments indicate the signal-caller's status is more up in the air. As a result, Newton's reps will be monitored closely to get a better sense of his outlook for Week 14. Taylor Heinicke would be the next man up if Newton is unable to play.
