New York Islanders place Jordan Eberle on injured reserve

  New York Islanders place Jordan Eberle on injured reserve Jordan Eberle was placed on injured reserve, but is expected to return to the Islanders rather soon.Eberle, of course, will not play against the division-rival Columbus Blue Jackets tonight. The 29-year-old winger has yet to score in five games with the Islanders this season, but has three assists. While some were expecting that the streaky Eberle might be the odd man out with four key unrestricted free agents to deal with this summer, Eberle was one of the first to sign on the dotted line, agreeing to a five-year, $27.5M deal.

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton ’s rehabilitation from an injured foot is not going well. Newton played in Carolina’s first two games this season before the team shut him down because of the injury , which he originally suffered in the preseason.

Newton’s latest evaluation with a foot specialist revealed that he needs rest, not surgery, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. That sounds like good news, but the rest will take several weeks, and Newton may go on injured reserve.

Realistically, even if the rest only takes a month, Newton and the Panthers may decide it doesn’t make sense to bring him back in December just to play a few games.

Cam Newton once again remains out, Kyle Allen to start vs. 49ers in Week 8

  Cam Newton once again remains out, Kyle Allen to start vs. 49ers in Week 8 For what it’s worth, it remains to be seen if Newton even would be the starter if he were healthy enough to play. The Panthers lost both games Newton started this season, and Carolina is undefeated since Allen has taken over the offense. However, this next week provides a whole new challenge. The 49ers feature one of the NFL’s most dominant defenses — a unit that gets after the quarterback, creates turnovers and that has allowed a grand total of 10 points in its last three games combined.

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is seeking another opinion on his injured left foot. Newton has missed Carolina’s last five games and has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans He has not practiced since Week 2 and Kyle Allen was named the starter earlier in the week .

For the Panthers, there’s also the consideration that backup Kyle Allen has played well enough that they might not be a better team with Newton back on the field late in the season.

Newton could be done for 2019, and then the Panthers would head into an offseason with some difficult decisions to make. In 2020 Newton is in the final year of his contract and has a salary cap hit of $21.1 million.

Panthers QB Cam Newton would reportedly welcome trade to Bears .
Not only would the Bears offer Newton a fresh start, but Matt Nagy seems like the right coach to successfully resurrect Newton’s career. Either way, Chicago has to do something about the quarterback position, and trading for Newton might be the answer.
