Panthers | Will let process play out with Greg Hardy

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 12:03:18 -0700

The Carolina Panthers will not discipline DE Greg Hardy at this point after being found guilty of assaulting and threatening his ex-girlfriend until after an appeal is heard. "We are in a process and we're letting the process play its way out," coach Ron Rivera said. "Because of that, we're following through with the situation, set of circumstances. We're not trying to do anything below board or way above board. "We're trying to go through the process as we understand it. We're going to do the best we can. The players have handled it tremendously well. It's been really hard on them I know, as far as those things. But again, get on the football field and be able to handle those situations, circumstances, that's what the guys have done."

Panthers | Cam Newton could sit

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 06:10:41 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs) could be held out of the team's Week 1 game by head coach Ron Rivera. Rivera may hold him back to make sure he is healthy for the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: With a FantasyScore price of $6,800 (13.60% of cap), Newton is an extremely risky play. If he gets into the game, it may be tough for him to live up to expectations.

Panthers | Cam Newton tests ankle

Tue, 17 Jun 2014 09:47:14 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) tested his surgically repaired ankle Tuesday, June 17, and did more than head coach Ron Rivera was expecting. Newton did not participate in any team drills after taking three and five-step drops on passes to wide receivers. "I think I'm on schedule to make a speedy recovery," Newton said after practice. "We are in the last curve and I am just trying to be smart about it, do everything that the trainers ask of me and more and see where that gets me."

Fantasy Tip: Newton appears to be right on track in his recovery from ankle surgery. As long as there are no setbacks, he should be good to go for training camp.

Panthers | Top priority is to protect quarterback

Tue, 29 Apr 2014 11:15:29 -0700

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said it is more important to protect QB Cam Newton than to get another offensive weapon. "I think protecting him (is more important),"Rivera said.

I think right now what we've done is bring in guys who have the ability to make plays for us. I feel very comfortable with that."
