CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WNCN) – Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton didn’t practice with the team Tuesday, the team announced.
NFL.com reported Newton aggravated a foot injury and his status for the Panthers game Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals is unknown.
Newton went 25 of 51 for 333 passing yards in a 20-14 loss last Thursday to the Tamps Bay Buccaneers.
Tuesday’s practice was the start to the team’s preparations for Sunday’s game at Arizona.
