Cam Newton continues to fight the injury bug, but this time his shoulder is not involved. After Newton was sacked by Adam Butler on a 3rd-and-10 play, the Panthers franchise quarterback was ruled out of Thursday's preseason game against the New England Patriots with a left foot injury.
The injury is just the latest setback for Newton over the last two seasons. Newton's shoulder issues derailed the Panthers' promising start in 2018 as the team started 6-2 but lost seven-straight games to miss the playoffs. Newton completed 67.9 percent of his passes for 3,395 yards, 24 touchdowns and 13 interceptions for a 94.2 passer rating. He also rushed for 488 yards and four touchdowns on the bad shoulder, which lingered throughout the season.
