Panthers QB Cam Newton Returns for Full Practice Thursday

The Panthers got some good news on Thursday, as quarterback Cam Newton returned to full practice and looks like he’s going to be 100 percent for Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers.

Newton was limited Wednesday (not throwing during the portion of practice open to reporters), and he told reporters his shoulder “feels great.”

But it’s clear they’re going to be managing him throughout the season. If the Panthers need a Hail Mary this week and he actually throws it, we’ll know he’s back to 100 percent.

Wide receiver Torrey Smith was the only player who didn’t practice, making it appear he’s going to miss a second game in a row.

Panthers Headed for a Critical Four-Game Stretch Starting Sunday Against Tampa

The 5-2 Panthers are a team that looks like they can be a force when it comes to the NFC. They have an offense that can score points and put up some big numbers, and their defense is nothing to sneeze at.

The team is still looking up at the 6-1 Saints, and if they are going to overtake them it’s not going to be easy, but they can do it if they keep playing at the level they showed Sunday with their win over the Baltimore Ravens.

Today we take a look at the teams’ next four games, a critical stretch in which the team will have to keep playing at a high level to stay in the race for a possible wild card spot or even a division title in the NFC.

November 4th vs Tampa Bay

This Sunday is a big NFC South game as the Panthers face the Bucs, a team that they will see later on down the road in Tampa as well. The Bucs have had an up and down 2018, with QB changes as well as some big wins (Saints), and awful losses (Steelers). The Panthers know this team can score, and will have to be on their toes offensively.

November 8th at Pittsburgh

Four days after the matchup with the Bucs, the Panthers travel to take on the first-place Steelers in Pittsburgh at Heinz Field in a Thursday night showdown. The Steelers are on a three-game win streak, and have started to look like one of the best teams again in the AFC after a slow start. A road game on a short week won’t be easy for the Cats.

November 18th at Detroit

The Panthers get a 10-day break after the matchup with the Steelers, as they will travel to Detroit to take on the Lions, a team that sits at 3-4 and has been very up and down much like Tampa. With Matthew Stafford and their offense you can’t overlook this team, and playing at Ford Field it will be an interesting test for the Panthers.

November 25th vs Seattle

The final game of the next four will see the Panthers play host to the Seattle Seahawks, another team eyeing the playoffs with a wild card birth in the NFC (they’re not catching the Rams). Seattle has won two in a row, sitting at 4-3 on the season. Playing at home will give the Panthers a big edge, but you can never count Russell Wilson and the Hawks out.

Video: Is Cam Newton Getting Enough Respect for the Panthers Strong Start in 2018?

Coming off an impressive Week 7 road win against the Philadelphia Eagles, the Panthers sit at second place in the NFC South behind the New Orleans Saints.

Stephen A. Smith says the Panthers are in this position solely because of quarterback Cam Newton, who is not receiving nearly enough credit as he should. Max Kellerman and Victor Cruz beg to differ, stating Cam receives the praise he deserves being a multi-dimensional and game-changing quarterback. However, Cruz says Cam’s legacy will ultimately come down to bouncing back from his Super Bowl 50 loss and claiming a title of his own.

Panthers Eric Reid Calls Eagles Malcolm Jenkins a ‘Sellout’ Over Protest Movement

Eric Reid and Malcolm Jenkins turned the fight for racial and social justice into a skirmish on the field. Reid then went on offense with his postgame comments, calling the Eagles safety and co-founder of The Players Coalition “a sellout.”

Reid split from the coalition last year because Jenkins had excluded Colin Kaepernick from meetings, and asked players if they would stop protesting during the national anthem if the NFL made a charitable donation to causes they support.

Reid, who signed with the Panthers in September, said he believed he no longer had shared interests with the socially-active coalition and would continue on his own path with the unsigned Kaepernick, who was the first player to sit and then kneel during the anthem to protest racism and police brutality.

“We believe a lot of players should have stepped up for Colin,” Reid said Sunday after the Panthers beat the Eagles 21-17. “I believe Malcolm capitalized on the situation. He co-opted the movement that was started by Colin to get his organization funded. It’s cowardly. He sold us out.”

Jenkins took the high road when told in the Eagles’ locker room of the criticism.

“I’m not going to get up here and say anything negative about that man,” Jenkins said. “I respect him. I’m glad he has a job. I’m glad he’s back in the league. I’ll leave it like that.”

Reid, who was not supposed to be at midfield, and Jenkins jawed at each other shortly before kickoff.

Reid continued his tradition of taking a knee during “The Star-Spangled Banner,” while none of his Carolina teammates joined him or stood near him at midfield. Reid is trying to call attention to social and racial injustice.

“It’s systematic oppression which is what I’m protesting and neocolonialism,” he said. “Man, it keeps happening.”

Video: The Panthers Spanish Call of Graham Gano’s 63-Yard Game Winning Field Goal is Amazing

Panthers kicker Graham Gano nailed a 63-yard field goal in the last seconds for a win over the Giants on Sunday, a kick that was not only record breaking, but gave the Cats a much needed win after they allowed the Giants to rally.

The call from the Panthers Spanish announcers Jaime Moreno and Luis Moreno Jr. is something you have to see, as Adam Schefter tweeted out the video.
