Panthers QB Cam Newton Dealing With A Hairline Rib Fracture

 

Panthers HC Ron Rivera told reporters on Sunday that QB Cam Newton is dealing with a hairline rib fracture and will not play in the team’s final preseason game, per Steve Reed.

However, Rivera expects Newton to play in the preseason opener against the Buccaneers.

Newton, 25, was sacked three times during the Panthers’ third preseason game and left after taking a hit from Patriots LB Jamie Collins. He underwent an offseason ankle surgery and has a completely new group of receivers to work with this season, so it will be interesting to see how effective he is to start the year.

Guys play through fractured ribs, but it can certainly be a nagging issue until it’s fully healed.
