Panthers quarterback Cam Newton says the rehabilitation from shoulder surgery is going “unbelievable,” and he hopes to be throwing before training camp.
ATLANTA — Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton says the rehabilitation from shoulder surgery is going “unbelievable,” and he hopes to be throwing before training camp.
“I’m feeling great now,” Newton told ESPN in an interview from “Fellaship,” his Atlanta-based cigar bar/restaurant that held its grand opening this past weekend. “I feel like I do have full strength right now. But me telling the doctor, that is different than, you know, whatever the clearance process may be.”
The 2015 NFL MVP underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder in January after being shut down the final two games of the 2018 season. During the process, doctors removed scar tissue that remained from 2017 offseason surgery on a partially torn rotator cuff.
Newton went into last season admittedly feeling the best he has in years, but after a 6-2 start, the shoulder became an issue and was a factor in a seven-game losing streak that ultimately led Carolina to miss the playoffs for the second time in three seasons.
Newton hasn’t been given a timetable for when he’ll be cleared, but he’s confident there won’t be another setback like last season.
