Cam Newton 'on schedule' in his recovery

Carolina Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman told the media quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) is "on schedule" to be ready for the start of training camp in late-July.

Fantasy Impact

Newton underwent offseason shoulder surgery on March 30 and is "on schedule" in his recovery, per Gettleman. Although he will miss offseason workouts, the 27-year-old signal caller is expected to be ready for the start of training camp in late-July. Barring a setback, Newton is not in danger of missing any regular season action.

Cam Newton to undergo surgery Thursday

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) will undergo offseason surgery on his throwing shoulder Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

As announced earlier in the month, Newton will undergo his shoulder surgery Thursday. Schefter reports that the 27-year-old signal caller is expected to be sidelined for "about four months" as a result. Newton will miss spring workouts but should be available for the start of training camp in late-July. Although he is still slated a QB1 by most experts after accounting for a down year in 2016, Newton has work to do before being mentioned in the elite category he was in during the 2015 campaign in which he accumulated 45 total touchdowns.

Cam Newton to undergo offseason surgery

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) will undergo offseason rotator cuff surgery.

Fantasy Impact

It appears Newton suffered a partially torn rotator cuff during Week 14 of the 2016 season and will undergo surgery on March 30 to repair the injury. Per reports, Newton will not throw with the team until 16 weeks following the procedure and could still be ready for the start of training camp at the end of July.

Cam Newton tosses three picks in season finale

Cam Newton tossed three interceptions in the season finale against the Buccaneers. Newton finished with 237 yards and one touchdown, while adding six yards on the ground. It was a tough season for Newton, who completed a career-worst 52.7 percent of his passes this season. Newton finished with 3,272 yards passing and 23 total touchdowns to 11 interceptions in 14 games played.

Fantasy Impact

This was Newton's worst season of his career with a career low in completion percentage and half the amount of rushing touchdowns as 2015. Newton will look to rebound in 2017, returning to the player who scored 45 total touchdowns in 2015. Despite the down year, he will likely be one of the top quarterbacks off the board in 2017 due to his rushing abilities and potential.

Cam Newton completed only 18 of his 43 pass attempts in Saturday's 33-16 loss to the Falcons. Newton finished with only 198 passing yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. Newton added eight carries for 36 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Newton attempted the second most attempts in a game this season and finished with his second lowest completion percentage. He continues to struggle since returning from a concussion and playing with an injured shoulder. He's a back-end QB1 at best for Week 17.
