I'm still trying to figure out how Aaron Rodgers RG3 got hurt. Did his knee just collapse?

In Topic: Cam Newton injury updates

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.

In Topic: Very Nice Press Conference by Cam

Cam's come a long way this year. I'm very proud of him. He's not the smoothest at the podium, but I think he's just being careful about what he says/doesn't say. I don't blame him.
