Cam Newton a doubt for Panthers game against Cardinals due to foot injury

After aggravating a foot injury 27, carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton sat out practice on Tuesday and Might miss Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Head trainer Ron Rivera and general manager Marty Hurney told reporters Newton said his foot was sore following the team’s Thursday night loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 30-year-old sprained his foot from the New England Patriots last month in a preseason game. Team-mate Eric Reid said Newton has been at a walking boot. Rivera revealed Newton underwent therapy and also the coach and quarterback met again on Tuesday to reassess. “He was low about it, he actually was. He wants to compete so badly,” Rivera said. “It is tough. He wants to be out there because of his team-mates. I love our dialogue. He was honest and he was upfront about it. He said he is going to do. We’ll see what happens.” Asked about a deadline for Newton’s yield, Rivera replied:”I have no idea” When Newton sits against the Cardinals (0-1-1), the 0-2 Panthers will start Kyle Allen at dusk. “I believe Kyle’s more than prepared,” Rivera explained. “I think Kyle did some great things this past year, showed us exactly what he’s capable of. He had a fantastic preseason. Had a whole bunch of ups, had a couple of downs, but for the most part, he understands the crime, he knows it. “So we feel convinced about him, we really do.” Allen appeared in two games (one start) at 2018, going 20 of 31 for 266 yards and two touchdowns. In the preseason he travelled 18 of 34 for 165 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions. The Panthers drafted Will Grier from the next round of April’s draft, but he has to be active through two weeks. Rivera stated the group is unlikely to put in a veteran. “I really don’t believe so,” Rivera said. “The guys we have here, we brought them here for a reason” Newton has been 25-of-51 death to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for yards at a loss Thursday. He was shot three times and lost a fumble. Over the seasonhe has an interception and no touchdown passes. Newton missed the 2018 season’s final two matches . Read more:
