    Panthers' Cam Newton: Increases throwing range

    Cam Newton (shoulder) increased his throwing range to approximately 20 yards Wednesday, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.Newton also threw to moving targets rather than stationary ones, but he still has a ways to go before he's cleared to practice with teammates. It should happen early in training camp, if not at the very beginning, as he'll have time to build up arm strength over the next six weeks. Based on pictures circulating around Twitter, Newton appears to have successfully lost weight in the offseason with help from a new trainer and a vegan diet.

    Panthers' Cam Newton: Begins throwing again

    Cam Newton (shoulder) has begun throwing again for the first time since his offseason surgery, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.Newton hasn't thrown in full-team OTA practices but has started overhand throwing regulation-sized footballs again during his rehab, which is a positive sign in his recovery process. It's unclear if he'll be able to throw during reps with his teammates at OTAs or minicamp, but it's expected that he'll be participating in most workouts when training camp rolls around.

    Panthers' Cam Newton: Not throwing at OTAs

    Cam Newton (shoulder) hasn't been throwing during the first two days of OTAs, Bryan Strickland of the Carolina Panthers' official site reports.Newton is coming off January surgery to repair his throwing shoulder after missing the final two games of the 2018 season. All reports regarding his recovery have been positive thus far, but it's not clear if Newton will be throwing much during OTAs at any point over the next three weeks. Even if he doesn't at all, Newton would still have one more chance -- the Panthers' mandatory minicamp from June 11 to 13 -- to get some live reps in before training camp.

    Panthers' Cam Newton: Plans to throw before camp

    Cam Newton (shoulder) hopes to resume throwing footballs before training camp, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. "I'm feeling great now," Newton said. "I feel like I do have full strength right now. But me telling the doctor that is different than, you know, whatever the clearance process may be."Newton had arthroscopic surgery in January after missing the final two games of 2018. The shoulder injury impacted his arm strength during the second half of the season, coinciding with Carolina's slide from a 6-2 record to a 7-9 finish. Newton's arthroscopic procedure in January included the removal of scar tissue that was left over from the surgery he had on a partially torn rotator cuff during the 2017 offseason. He's confident he won't have any more setbacks with his throwing shoulder, but the Carolina Panthers presumably will take a cautious approach leading up to Week 1. Even if everything goes according to plan, Newton is unlikely to get his usual reps during training camp and the preseason. In the meantime, he's trying to drop his weight down to around 237 pounds with the help of a vegan diet and a new personal trainer. Newton weighed 248 at the 2011 combine and was listed at 245 last season.

    Panthers' Cam Newton: Range of motion increasing

    General manager Marty Hurney said Cam Newton (shoulder) has increased his range of motion this offseason, but the quarterback has yet to throw a football, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.Coach Ron Rivera offered similar comments in January and it seems Newton only continued to make progress as the offseason went on. While the quarterback remains without a timetable to resume throwing footballs, the Carolina Panthers have expressed nothing but optimism over Newton's recovery thus far and there doesn't appear to be any concern whatsoever about his Week 1 availability. Newton will be four months removed from arthroscopic shoulder surgery when OTAs kick off next month and six months removed before training camp starts in late July.

    Panthers' Cam Newton: On track with recovery

    Coach Ron Rivera reiterated the Carolina Panthers are happy with Cam Newton's recovery from arthroscopic surgery on his right throwing shoulder, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports. "We're really pleased with his workouts," Rivera said. "Reports we got have been all positive. I look forward to seeing him soon, but just very happy that things are trending in the right direction."Newton looked like the quarterback of yore through Week 12 of last season, but lingering soreness in the shoulder ultimately proved too much to overcome, forcing the Panthers to shut him down after a paltry 131-yard, one-interception effort Week 15 against the Saints. He went under the knife Jan. 24, and every comment made by Rivera regarding Newton's rehab in the meantime has oozed with optimism. It's unclear if Newton will be able to fit in much, if any, work during the offseason program, but he nonetheless appears to be on track for the 2019 campaign.

    Panthers' Cam Newton: Progressing well

    The Carolina Panthers are pleased with Cam Newton's rehab from offseason arthroscopic surgery on his throwing shoulder, ESPN's David Newton reports. "From what I've gotten in reports, Cam's progress has been very good," coach Ron Rivera noted. "He's been getting all his workouts in. Just knowing that gives you a little bit of confidence going forward."Given the encouraging reports surrounding Newton's recovery, the team currently has no plans to seek veteran QB help in free agency. The Panthers are expected to re-sign restricted free agent Taylor Heinicke, while 22-year-old Kyle Allen remains under contract with the team. Additionally, it appears as though one of Newton's key targets, tight end Greg Olsen, will remain with the franchise, despite offers to move into the broadcasting field.

    Panthers' Cam Newton: Should be ready for 2019 season

    The Carolina Panthers expect Cam Newton (shoulder) to be ready to start the 2019 season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.Newton played through a shoulder injury for a bulk of the 2018 campaign, and although he'll likely be back for Week 1, the Panthers appeared slightly less certain about Newton being healthy to begin training camp after he underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove excess scar tissue in January. This also casts doubt that Newton will be fully available for the offseason program which begins in April and runs through stretches during May and June. Newton had a solid season despite the injury, so he'll have plenty to build off of when he can get back to full participation.

    Panthers' Cam Newton: Regaining range of motion

    Coach Ron Rivera said Thursday that Cam Newton "has gotten a lot of range of motion back" in his right throwing shoulder, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.Rivera's comments come on the heels of Newton exuding positive thoughts about his recent arthroscopic surgery, which included cleaning out excess scar tissue but otherwise was minimally invasive. "It's better than I thought it would be," Newton told 680 The Fan Atlanta on Wednesday. He played through the injury for a large portion of the 2018 season, but the Carolina Panthers opted to shut him down after Week 15 due to three shoddy performances in a row. With the offseason program roughly three months into the future, Newton will put all of his efforts into rehabilitation for the time being.

    Panthers' Cam Newton: Pleased with procedure

    Cam Newton said his Jan. 24 shoulder procedure went better than he expected, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. "It's better than I thought it would be," Newton said Wednesday. "With so much going on throughout this season, I was in fear to see what actually was wrong.''The scope was performed by team physician Pat Connor, who previously operated on Newton's partially torn rotator cuff in March 2017. The 29-year-old quarterback is sure to have limitations during the offseason program, but he should have a chance to regain full strength in his problematic right shoulder before the start of training camp. There were signs of progress in his first season working under offensive coordinator Norv Turner, as Newton entered December carrying a 69.6 completion percentage with 7.5 yards per pass attempt and a 22:7 TD:INT. The shoulder issue caught up to him in the final month of the season, contributing to three consecutive subpar outings before he was shut down for the year.
