Panthers' Cam Newton: Held without TD by Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newton completed 26 of 42 passes for 265 yards and an interception while adding 23 yards on five carries in Sunday's 26-20 loss to Cleveland.

Both of Carolina's touchdowns were scored by running back Christian McCaffrey, as the Browns kept Newton without a rushing or passing score, snapping an 11-game streak with multiple touchdowns passes for the mobile quarterback. He'll look to start a new such streak in Week 15 against an exploitable Saints secondary, assuming Newton's bothersome shoulder doesn't flare up.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Shoulder not expected to be issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers aren't viewing Newton's surgically repaired right shoulder as nearly as much of a concern heading into Sunday's matchup with the Browns as they did late in the Week 13 loss to the Buccaneers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The fact that Newton doesn't carry an injury designation into the weekend already implied some level of confidence in his health, but it's at least reassuring for his fantasy managers to hear that Carolina is optimistic the quarterback can bounce back from his four-interception disaster against Tampa Bay. During that contest, Newton also ceded the final snap to backup Taylor Heinicke, who threw an unsuccessful Hail Mary attempt to close out the contest. Rapoport relays that Newton's shoulder injury is considered minor and merely a matter of general soreness, with another offseason procedure not expected to be in the cards for the signal-caller. Carolina will likely continue to limit Newton's throwing in practices going forward as a safeguard, but the 29-year-old should start each of the team's final four contests.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newton (shoulder) practiced again Friday and doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Browns, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Coach Ron Rivera raised some alarms Wednesday when he wouldn't commit to Newton being available this weekend, but it seems the Panthers just wanted to see how the quarterback looked in practice the subsequent two days before signing off on him playing. Newton went through limited activity Thursday before he resumed throwing passes Friday, with Rivera relaying afterward that the quarterback looked "fine," per David Newton of ESPN.com. While Newton should be able to fight through the lingering soreness in his right shoulder and finish out the season on the field, he acknowledged earlier in the week that another surgery might be necessary in the offseason. Newton still looks like a viable weekly starting option even in shallow settings, but it's fair to have some level of apprehension about his prospects coming off his worst outing of the campaign in Week 13. Facing off against a wretched Buccaneers pass defense, Newton completed 28 of 41 passes for 300 yards and two touchdowns, but tossed four interceptions -- matching his combined total from the preceding seven contests -- in a losing effort.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Throwing passes Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newton (shoulder) was spotted throwing passes during Friday's practice, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Newton did not throw Wednesday or Thursday, but he was apparently feeling good enough to do so at the Panthers' final practice session of the week. Newton's availability for Week 14 remains undecided, and a final call on his status may not be made until Sunday.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Limited again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newton (shoulder) remained a limited participant at Thursday's practice, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

Although Newton didn't throw for a second consecutive day, he handled every practice rep that was expected of him, coach Ron Rivera told Max Henson of the Panthers' official site. Nothing that happened Thursday shed light on Newton's ability to play through lingering pain in his surgically-repaired shoulder. The veteran signal-caller likely will do anything to keep the Panthers within striking distance of the postseason, but Rivera's comments this week have been less than convincing. Of note, Rivera said Wednesday that "we'll see" regarding Newton's upcoming availability, per Bryan Strickland of the team's official site. "We're not even to Friday yet." Friday's session and subsequent injury report will forecast Newton's odds to suit up.
