Joe Person did a Q&A session on The Athletic where he was asked about the quarterback situation.
His response was mostly kinda generic , saying first that it's going to be very important that it be handled correctly (obviously). But he did also mention that he could see a potential "tug of war" coming about when Newton is actually healthy.
Who the tug of war will be between? I'd call that kind of an important detail, but Person didn't say.
As far as predicting the future, Person believes that Newton will start again before season's end (maybe against the Titans) but also acknowledged that the Panthers clearly have a desire to "slow play" his recovery time and "bring him back slowly". and of course, everything hinges on him being "100%".
To sum it up, he said he expects this to be a "fascinating couple of weeks".
Really wish he would have elaborated more on the whole "tug of war" thing. Maybe somebody can ask him on Twitter.
