Panthers will keep close eye on Cam Newton’s ankle against Falcons

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will be watched closely from the sidelines after he suffered an ankle injury against the New Orleans Saints.


Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is probable with an ankle injury he sustained in the second half last week against the New Orleans Saints Saints. Newton stayed in the game, but his mobility clearly was affected.

Newton ran just four times for 6 yards, the second-lowest total of his career. Newton was at full participation for both of the Panthers’ practices this week, but Rivera said coaches and trainers would keep a close eye on him in Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons at the Georgia Dome.

“We have to react to how he is – game speed, full speed,” Rivera said. “We’ve got to react and just know what we can do and can’t do.”
