  Cam Newton “still rehabbing” injured foot Earlier this season, Panthers coach Ron Rivera threw the most polite hissy fit ever, walking out of a press conference when he grew tired of being asked questions about Cam Newton‘s injured foot. After the Panthers took a 51-13 thrashing from the 49ers, Rivera apparently wasn’t in a mood to continue that conversation.

According to Ian Rapoport at NFL Network, Newton is now considering surgery for his left foot.

“Almost certainly out for the season, Newton is now considering surgery to repair the Lisfranc injury in his foot, sources say. The procedure, which would come in the next week or two, has a recovery time of eight-to-10 weeks — three months at the most.”

Panthers G.M.: Newton needs to “gather more information”

  Panthers G.M.: Newton needs to “gather more information” With injured quarterback Cam Newton seeing a foot specialist today, the Panthers seem to be at a loss for answers as well. The team put out a statement acknowledging his trip to Green Bay to see foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson (their former team doctor). “I spent a long time speaking with Cam this week and he’s done everything he possibly can in his rehab process to get his foot to 100 percent,” General Manager Marty Hurney said. “Unfortunately, we haven’t reached that point. The next step is for him to go see Dr. Anderson and gather more information.

Looking ahead, Newton has one year left on his contract. If the Panthers keep him around for 2020, he will have a cap hit of $21.1 million. The team can save $19.1 million of that by cutting or trading him. However, if Newton is able to get back to healthy that’s a bargain for an above-average quarterback.

For now, the Panthers seem content to keep Kyle Allen as their starter. He’s 5-1 heading into today’s matchup with the Packers.
