CelebNSports247.com reports that the Carolina Panthers made the official announcement that they have placed QB Cam Newton on IR.
The Panthers GM Marty Hurney said in a statement regarding Cam Newton and his injury:
For the past seven weeks, Cam has diligently followed a program of rest and rehab and still is experiencing pain in his foot. He saw two-foot specialists last week who agreed that he should continue that path prescribed by the team’s medical staff and that it likely will take significant time for the injury to fully heal.
We have said all along that it is impossible to put a timetable on this injury. Nobody is more frustrated with that fact than Cam. He’s one of the fiercest competitors I’ve been around during my 20-plus years in the League. At this time, we have decided that the best decision to reach the goal of bringing the foot back to 100 percent is to place Cam on the injured reserve.
Taking over the starting position as QB will continue to be Kyle Allen. He is currently the one leading the team while Cam Newton will continue to rehab the Lisfranc injury. Newton only played two games in 2019.
If you recall, the injury that Cam sustained happened during a preseason game.
The 30-year-old completed 50 of 89 passes for 572 yards with no TDs and one interception.
