Cam Newton still limited in mobility

20 July 2014 - 08:22 PM

Cam Newton's recovery from ankle surgery has gone well by all accounts. With training camp starting this week, we'll get to see how close he is to Full Newton.

The Charlotte Observer notes that Newton was throwing to receivers last week in Greensboro, N.C., but he was limited in his mobility. That is to be expected less than four months removed from major surgery, but it's a reminder that this was a major surgery.

Newton's ankle surgery has surprisingly received relatively little attention this offseason. Perhaps that's because he was able to participate in some of the team's 7-on-7 drills in mid-June. Or because there's been so much attention on the changes in Carolina at wide receiver and on the offensive line. Maybe it's because Newton looks like Superman, and we all assume he can discard surgeries like arm tackles.

The Panthers are asking Newton to handle more responsibility than ever this year. He needs to carry an otherwise flawed offense. That will be a lot easier if he maintains his explosiveness as a runner, which means we'll be watching his ankle closely in August.


Healing ankle with shaky offensive line? Not good.

Thomas Davis sheds knee brace

18 June 2014 - 01:39 PM



CHARLOTTE – Linebacker Thomas Davisicon-article-link.gif believes the knee brace he's worn the past three years has slowed him down.

Now that he's shed it, there may be no stopping him.

"I can just go out, redirect and play fast," said Davis, who sported his new look at the first day of the Panthers' three-day mandatory minicamp Tuesday. "I'm to the point where I feel very confident and comfortable with it right now. I'm out here moving around really well, and I'm just excited to be out here."

Davis wasn't yet wearing a brace four summers ago, when he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee for the second time in seven months. He had worn one for every practice and game since, including when he injured the knee a third time early in the 2011 season, but decided in conjunction with the training staff to ditch the brace last month.

His knee looked as good as new last season, when Davis racked up a career-high 151 tackles.

"I have no concerns about his knee and the stability of his ACL," head athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion said. "He's always had great strength, but I still wanted to protect his knee for the first couple of years back. But now we've got two-plus seasons under our belt, and he's confident and has great stability and strength in his knees, so he's able to pull it off now. He's super-happy about that."

While Davis has never hidden his disdain for the brace, he said there's no way he'd take the field without it if the training staff didn't approve. With the nine-week offseason workout program ending this week, Davis' top priority for the team is to take a safety-first approach.

"Really, the most important thing that can come from these three days is guys staying healthy," Davis said. "We've installed a bunch of our defense and offense, and guys know what to do.

"Now it's all about coming out here, being smart, taking care of your body and making sure you're healthy going into training camp."

This means an even FASTER Thomas Davis, watch out NFC South.

Steve Smith likes the way Joe Flacco throws the deep ball (so what does that say about Cam Newton?) http://wp.me/p14QSB-9uFv 





“I’ve been an admirer of him, even just watching him in college at Delaware and then coming into the draft,” Smith said, via Clifton Brown of CSNBaltimore.com. “You know, as a wide receiver you always kind of look at the quarterbacks in the draft every year to see which guys (have potential) and what they say about whom. How I evaluate a quarterback – if he’s on the other hash and you run a comeback, where’s your ball placement? Is the ball hitting the guy at the ankles, or is he hitting him in the chest?  
Delhomme tended to lead Smith high if anything (allowing a lot of those good-looking one-handed catches), and those two were extremely productive through the years.  So while he didn’t mention Newton by name, it’s almost as if Smith and his previous quarterback weren’t exactly BFFs.
