Panthers' Cam Newton: Scheduled for shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newton is slated to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his throwing shoulder on March 30, Max Hanson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Newton suffered a partial tear of his right rotator cuff in Week 14 of last season, after which his practice participation alternated between limited and full in preparation for the final three games. While he didn't miss an offensive snap down the stretch, he statistically posted the worst campaign of his six-year career, completing a miserable 53 percent of his throws for 3,509 yards with a 19:14 TD:INT ratio, while failing to reach 500 yards on the ground (359 yards, to be exact) for the first time. After the season, the Panthers placed a specific rehab schedule upon him. "We developed a plan for Cam to take a period of rest, a period of rehabilitation and treatment, and then start a gradual throwing program the first part of March," head athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion said. "Cam started his program, and the early parts of his rehab had been going well. However, as we worked to advance him into the next stage -- the strengthening stage, the throwing stage -- he started to have an increase in his pain level and started having pain while throwing. As a result, Dr. Pat Connor [head team physician] felt the most prudent procedure would be to arthroscopically repair the shoulder." Newton is expected to require 12 weeks before commencing "an early throwing program" and 16 weeks before throwing in a team setting. With attendance during the offseason program ruled out, he'll aim to be ready by the start of training camp in late July.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Shoulder surgery on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newton is slated to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left, non-throwing shoulder on March 30, Max Hanson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Newton suffered a partial tear of his left rotator cuff in Week 14 of last season, after which his practice participation alternated between limited and full in preparation for the final three games.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Rushing role to be restricted
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Panthers coach Ron Rivera wants to continue to limit the amount of hits Newton (shoulder) takes through running the ball, NFL.com reports.

Newton is coming off a career-low 90 rushing attempts this past season, and after dealing with shoulder issues during the campaign, the Panthers hope to keep his ground pursuits in check going forward. Although Newton's skill set makes him likely to scramble and take advantage of short-yard opportunities, it sounds like his amount of designed runs will continue to be managed by Carolina's coaching staff. While fewer forays out of the backfield could hurt Newton's fantasy value, he'll be most focused this year on improving his career-worst 6.9 yards per passing attempt from last season.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Will not undergo surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newton will not undergo surgery on his shoulder this offseason.

Newton has been bothered by his shoulder for the past handful of weeks, leaving him as a limited participant in practice most days. The reigning MVP will just need to rest the shoulder over the next few months and should be cleared to participate in offseason workouts.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Tosses three interceptions in Week 17 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newton (shoulder) completed 18 of 32 passes for 237 yards with a touchdown and three interceptions in Sunday's 17-16 loss to the Bucs. He also gained six yards on three rushes.

In a strangely fitting way, Newton ended a highly disappointing season from both an individual and team perspective with another sub-par performance. He was victimized by Brent Grimes for a pick-six, and safety Keith Tandy also swiped another two of his passes. It was notably Newton's second straight multi-interception game, and third overall in 2016. Newton finishes the season with a mediocre 19:14 TD:INT ratio and just 359 rushing yards, easily a career low.
