Cam Newton will not throw at the Carolina Panthers’ mandatory minicamp the team announced. More

Panthers coach Ron Rivera had been optimistic about Newton possibly throwing on the side with head trainer Ryan Vermillion during the team's three-day minicamp that begins Tuesday. However, that does not mean the quarterback has had a setback in his rehab from surgery to fix a partially torn rotator cuff.

Quarterback Cam Newton was expected to begin throwing this week but the Panthers announced Monday night that won't happen until next week.

All-Pro tight end Greg Olsen is not concerned about Newton being ready for the season even though the Panthers are changing some things up on offense. An NFL rule prohibits rookies who played at quarter-system schools like Stanford to join their team until their school's final exams are over. "Injuries happen. He's done everything he's been allowed to do up until this point".

The Carolina Panthers apparently will need to wait until training camp to see how Cam Newton looks throwing the football.

Oher was back in Charlotte on Tuesday after a month of not communicating with team officials. Oher, who's been in the NFL's concussion protocol since late September, is scheduled to meet with doctors.

They signed free agent left tackle Matt Kalil to a five-year, $55 million contract this offseason that included $24 million in guaranteed money with the plan being to move Oher to right tackle.

"It's good having him out here", Rivera said.
