Cam Newton still not 100 percent
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton still isn't quite 100 percent after undergoing offseason ankle surgery.
Newton has primarily been a pocket quarterback so far this season.
“We kind of teased about it a couple weeks ago, how the doctor kind of downplayed how the surgery was going to go,” Newton said. "I just thought this was a surgery just to clean up the ligaments and what not. But after reading a lot of reports from you guys, hearing about so much of ligament repair and this major ankle surgery that may hold Cam Newton off for a couple months, that’s when I started scratching my head like, man, this may be bigger than I thought.
"And something I thought may have a cast on for a couple weeks end up to be a couple months. I’m still in that mode where I’m trying to realize that I’m still trying to recover from a major ankle surgery that was displayed to me originally as just a regular little cleanup. My body is mending up, slowly but surely. That’s giving me a lot of confidence when I am thinking about running the football and throwing the football as well.”
