Panthers' Cam Newton: Throws three picks in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newton completed 28 of 52 passes for 239 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions in Thursday night's 28-23 loss to the Eagles. He also rushed 11 times for 71 yards and another score.

Newton was forced to carry the Panthers in the absence of a running game, resulting in not only him leading the team on the ground, but also setting a new career high in passing attempts. The signal-caller got his third rushing touchdown of the season by keeping an option and juking a defender to score from 16 yards out. After that, though, Newton's performance was marred by a couple faultless turnovers deep in his own territory. His first interception only occurred after his own lineman was plowed back into him mid-throw, resulting in a floating pass that was easily picked off. Then, to start the second half, a simple screen pass bounced off Jonathan Stewart's hands and into a defender's. While Newton rallied with a one-yard touchdown to Christian McCaffrey in the fourth quarter, a miscommunication gave him a third interception on Carolina's next drive. Overall, Newton will be frustrated by his turnovers, yet his massive usage produced a decent fantasy output.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Cleared for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newton (shoulder) doesn't have a designation in advance of Thursday's game against the Eagles, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

In order to keep Newton's throwing shoulder fresh this season, the Panthers have implemented a practice regimen that includes at least one limited session per week for their franchise quarterback. After a full practice Wednesday, though, he's been cleared on a short week for a Thursday night showdown versus the Eagles, who boast the 29th-ranked pass defense on the campaign.

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

Newton (shoulder) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

Newton's practice reps will likely be restricted throughout the campaign in order to limit the strain on his throwing arm following offseason surgery, but even with the Panthers facing their quickest turnaround of the season in Week 6, the quarterback is expected to be behind center Thursday against the Eagles. For what it's worth, Newton said following the practice that he could play Tuesday if he needed to, according to David Newton of ESPN.com, suggesting that the 2015 NFL MVP isn't concerned about his right shoulder. Newton's recent results would seem to back up his confidence in his health, as he's overcome a shaky start to the season to complete 77.4 percent of his passes while tossing six touchdowns against one interception the last two weeks in wins over the Patriots and Lions.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Listed as limited
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newton (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant on Monday's injury report, Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.

The Panthers didn't actually practice but are still required to provide estimates. The team is expected to limit Newton's practice workload all season, even though he appears to be back at his best as the Panthers prepare for Thursday's game against the Eagles.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Spectacular for second straight week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newton completed 26 of 33 passes for 355 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Lions. He didn't net any yards on his seven rushes, fumbled once and recovered a loose ball.

Newton's transformation over the last two games has been something to behold, as he's channeled the form he flashed as the 2015 NFL MVP, as opposed to that of the player who'd mustered a 2:4 TD:INT ratio through the first three games of the season. Factoring in Sunday's production, Newton is 48-for-62 for 671 yards with six touchdowns and one interception over the last pair of contests, averaging well over 10 yards per attempt in each. He impressively connected with Kelvin Benjamin, Devin Funchess and Christian McCaffrey for his trio of scores Sunday, while also cultivating his emerging connection with tight end Ed Dickson to the tune of five connections for 175 yards. Newton's vastly improved play has led the Panthers to consecutive wins after they'd bottomed out in a 34-13 Week 3 loss to the Saints. He'll look to keep it going against the Eagles in a tough Thursday night Week 6 showdown.
