  • Newton completed 13 of 25 passes for 137 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Vikings. He also rushed 11 times for 70 yards. Newton's performance was highlighted by a 62-yard rush to put Carolina in position to score the game-winning touchdown with under two minutes remaining. Along with shaking a defender in the open field on that play, Newton's 18-yard touchdown pass during the third quarter also came after he used his legs to buy time to find Devin Funchess. While Newton has topped 200 passing yards just once over the last six games, he's surpassed 50 rushing yards four times during that span, resulting in five Panther victories. With his dual-threat prowess reestablished, Newton will look to keep things rolling next Sunday versus the Packers.

  • Newton (shoulder) practiced fully Friday and doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Though he's now several months removed from offseason surgery on his throwing shoulder, Newton has remained a fixture on the Panthers' injury reports throughout the season. In spite of that, Newton has never been in any serious danger of missing any games this season, and the right shoulder shouldn't present any issues during Sunday's contest. Of greater concern for Newton is the Vikings' pass defense, which has limited opposing passers to 6.5 yards per attempt this season, good for the third-best mark in the NFL.

  • Newton (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports. Notably, Newton ditched the thumb injury attached to his name the past two weeks, during which he completed just 28 of 55 passes for 351 yards and two touchdowns and galloped 15 times for 79 yards and one more score. Continued maintenance for his surgically-repaired right shoulder could limit Newton's practice reps through the end of the week as he prepares for Sunday's matchup against the Vikings' 10th-ranked pass defense.

  • Newton completed 17 of 27 passes for 183 yards and two touchdowns, adding six carries for 51 yards, in Sunday's 31-21 loss to the Saints. Newton avoided turnovers and generally played a solid game, but he didn't get much help from his weapons besides Devin Funchess (shoulder) and Christian McCaffrey. The quarterback boosted his stat line in a big way late in the fourth quarter, breaking free for a 32-yard scramble and then finding Funchess for a 24-yard touchdown shortly thereafter. Carolina failed to recover the ensuing onside kick and didn't see the ball again. Newton will return home for a tough matchup with the Vikings in Week 14.

  • Newton (thumb/shoulder) practiced fully Friday and doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Saints. The right thumb injury was a new issue for Newton to contend with this week, but it didn't result in the quarterback seeing a dramatic reduction in his practice time. Following offseason shoulder surgery, Newton's practice reps have been regularly capped throughout the campaign, but the franchise signal caller has suited up in every game. Though Newton draws a tough matchup on paper against a Saints team that intercepted him three times in the Panthers' Week 3 loss, New Orleans could be shorthanded in the secondary with three key contributors in Marcus Williams (out with groin injury), Marshon Lattimore (questionable, ankle) and P.J. Williams (questionable, shoulder) nursing injuries.
