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

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. "You have so many opportunities to get play makers on the field. Other than the quarterback there are five other guys who can make plays for you. 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."
