Superman really needs OTAs to develop some Chemistry with young WRs.  This news is not just about Cam.

 

Meh, Cam did just fine without OTA his first season as a rookie.(400yard first game anyone?) And it's not like he will be totally off the field. He will probably be there doing light workouts by the time OTA's are here.

Man I wish I could have had that surgery.  I played a lot of basketball growing up and sprained my ankles, especially my left ankle, more times than I can count.  The more I did it, the easier it happened. To this day, my left ankle has limited movement and the simple act of jogging irritates it.  Good for him for knocking it out early.

Hope you are right, but nobody else had OTAs that year either.

There is a good chance he will have a rookie who is expected to step in and perform...

It isn't Cam Newton's fault that we've managed to draft ourselves exactly 1 starter on offense since he's joined the team, and purged all of our wide receivers who had a catch last season. How about instead of worrying about him, you focus on actually, you know, improving the offense around him.

Ehhh some of this stuff they discover on humans.  Usually in scenarios where a doctor looks at their brokenness and is like "yea uhhh... we don't know how to fix that yet... you won't be able to play again.  I could however rip you open and just wing it."

 

Athlete can choose between a 0% chance of recovery and <1% chance of recovery.  When your entire method of earning a living depends on that extremely low chance, you might be crazy enough to try it.
