Cam Newton added to injury report with sore shoulder
The Carolina Panthers added Cam Newton to their injury report today before Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans.
Newton is experiencing soreness in his right, throwing shoulder. He is listed as probable on the injury report.
According to the Charlotte Observer, Newton had an MRI exam on his shoulder in the last few days and the results were “good.” Newton has not missed any time as the team’s quarterback this season.
Teams want to be careful about the injury report. Just last week, the New Orleans Saints called out the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for not placing Josh Freeman on the injury report. The quarterback was shown in videos with a splint on his hand.
