Injury Newton expected to be ready for camp
Shoulder surgery planned for March 30th

Cam Newton will have surgery on a partially torn rotator cuff on March 30 in Charlotte. Head athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion told Panthers.com that Newton will begin a preliminary throwing program 12 weeks after the surgery. The team website maintained that he will be ready for the start of training camp, and Vermillion said Newton can throw with the team 16 weeks after surgery if everything goes as planned.

FFToday's Take: Newton originally injured his shoulder back in December and the team took a wait-and-see approach, hoping the injury would heal in the off-season with rehab. His timetable should allow him to throw at the end of July, right around the time training camp begins.
