Cam Newton Expected To Play Against Redskins


Despite going through an MRI on his throwing shoulder and limited practice time throughout the week, Cam Newton is expected to start tomorrow night against former teammate Josh Norman and the Washington Redskins.

At this point, the Panthers don’t have anything to play for besides pride and dignity. This is a far cry from this time last season, but there’s still an opportunity for Carolina to finish .500 if they win out.

Head coach Ron Rivera had this to say about his quarterback.

“He looked good,” Rivera said. “He moved around good [Friday] and moved around good today.”

Kickoff is set for 8:30 eastern time in the nation’s capital.
