Injury Update: Panthers QB Cam Newton to Resume Throwing

After undergoing surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff during the spring, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will be back on the field next week when the team takes part in minicamp. 

Newton won't be a full participant, but take part in side throwing sessions. Newton was expected to be sidelined from off-season programs up until training camp, so this is most definitely good news for the Panthers. 

Shoulder injuries are always a bad thing when it comes to quarterbacks. Having to deal with a rotator cuff tear he suffered during a disastrous 2016 season only magnifies that further. 

If Newton does show up to camp completely healthy, he's still a top three or four fantasy quarterback. Despite putting up the worst statistical season of his career in 2016, Newton was still able to finish as a mid QB2 option. Though, that type of inconsistency hurts, especially considering Newton had finished as a top-five option four of his first five seasons in the NFL.
