Cam Newton injury updates

17 posts in this topic

According to Charlotte Observer:

X-rays on Cam Newton's ribs, ankle reveal no fractures

The Panthers' season is over, so the injury update on quarterback Cam Newton is not necessarily pressing.

But any time a franchise quarterback goes down hard and is scheduled for follow-up tests, the franchise understandably has a high level of concern.

The X-rays on Newton's ribs and left ankle were negative this week, Panthers trainer Ryan Vermillion said. According to Vermillion, an X-ray and MRI exam on Newton's ankle revealed a minor high sprain.

Newton told Vermillion if the Panthers were playing this week, “he would be a full go and there is no way he would miss a game,” Vermillion said via email.

Newton left the game against the Saints for five plays Sunday after defensive lineman Turk McBride rolled up on Newton's left ankle. After getting the ankle taped, Newton returned and finished the game.

Afterward, Newton said an earlier hit injured his ribs.

Newton, 6-5 and 245 pounds, has been resilient his first two seasons. The Saints' game was the first time he had missed multiple plays due to an injury.

Good the season ended now then. "High ankle sprains" are typically the worst kind of non serious injury. It's a 4-6 week healing process at times

Minor high ankle sprain can be a little as a few days.
