Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton insists he's not completely recovered from offseason ankle surgery.

He's practicing, though.

“I can’t stress enough that I’m not 100 percent yet,” Newton said. “It’s just going to take treatment and time.”

Newton had surgery in march.

”It was good to see Cam out there,” Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. ”He’s a little rusty in terms of his quarterback to running back exchange. But he’s working himself back in and he has to work those techniques. But it was nice to see him make some nice throws. .

"A big thing is developing that footwork and getting that flexibility back in that ankle. As he practices and goes through day by day we have to be smart with it. I think he will work back into shape pretty soon.”
