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 Sundays game against the Atlanta Falcons at the Georgia Dome.
We have to react to how he is game speed, full speed, Rivera said. Weve got to react and just know what we can do and cant do.
