Cam Newton in full pads for Panthers practice

It looks like Cam Newton's absence will only last one game.

On Wednesday, the Carolina Panthers quarterback was in full pads as the team prepares for its Week 2 game against Detroit, according to reports from the local Charlotte media.

Newton missed the season-opener against the Buccaneers, though backup Derek Anderson was able to lead the offense and still get a 17-14 win anyway.

Newton is nursing a hairline fracture to one of his ribs.
