Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has clearly been dealing with a shoulder injury, but the veteran signal caller isn’t sure what exactly is wrong.
“For people who [have] labrum, rotator cuff, just shoulder soreness . . . I wish I could say what the injury is because I don’t really know what it is either,” Newton said, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.
“No matter how much you push, no matter how much you ice, the anti‐ inflammatory you take. Trust me, I’ve done it. Acupuncture, massages. There’s not a night that goes by without me getting some type of work done on my arm. You just don’t have the strength.”
Newton’s Panthers were eliminated from playoff contention following Monday Night’s loss to the New Orleans Saints.
“From the range of motion, you work on the range of motion then come game time and you never know how the game can play out. Of course you try to stay under 25-30 throws, but if you surpass that or you get hit on it or you have to run or you get tackled and fall on your shoulder, certain things happen.”
Panthers Sign Tre Boston
Once again, Boston has had to endure a lengthy stay on the free agent market before landing with a new team, as he had to do last season prior to signing with the Arizona Cardinals.
Boston return to the Panthers, who drafted him in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL draft.
Panthers’ Gerald McCoy Looking to do Big Things with Carolina Defense
Carolina Panthers new defensive tackle Gerald McCoy has his eyes on doing some big things in his new defense during the upcoming season.
“Greatness” McCoy said, during an appearance on WFNZ Radio. “I didn’t come for anything less .This defense, as a whole, can be so incredible. And if you add me, it just puts it over the top with what I’ve been able to do in my career. Little tricks of the trade, and things I have and see that a lot of people don’t see that I can help these guys up front see.”
McCoy is confident that his addition will bring Carolina’s defense to the next level.
“I know what I’m capable of. I know what I still have left in the tank, and I truly believe not only can I that same type of production, but I can go even higher than what people have seen over the past few years.”
Panthers’ Luke Kuechly Not Concerned for Scheme Change
Carolina Panthers veteran linebacker Luke Kuechly isn’t too concerned about a defensive scheme change which will have him taking on a different role on the defense moving forward.
Carolina will employ more 3-4 looks into their defense for the 2019 season which will move Kuechly around from his traditional spots on the defense, but he isn’t too worried about it.
“It’s just football. There’s been certain looks that we’ve run in the past that mimic what we do now. So it’s not completely foreign,” Kuechly said, according to Joseph Person of The Athletic. “There’s just a couple new things here and there that are different, but pretty straightforward.”
