Cam Newton aggravates foot injury, status uncertain

Recommended Posts

This explains a lot.  I don't know why we keep playing him instead of letting completely heal.

Time to tank tbh

Cam is hitting that late-career injury wall...at 30 years old. 

I think his time as a viable starting QB is coming to an end, if it hasn’t already.

I'm calling it, he goes on IR at the end of the season then retire, he lost the love...

He lost the love when he lost the SB. Since then he's been fully on the me-first and fashion-second train, with football as a distant third.

He aggravated us with his fashion first. His foot came later.

Probably taking the bait, but Newton played the last 4 games of 2016 with a torn rotator cuff.  Last year he kept playing despite needing shoulder surgery.  And he just tried to play through a foot injury (not buying the "re-aggravated" BS Hurney and Rivera are saying).  I'm sure he loves the game still, his body has just been falling apart.

How would you have felt when going into the offseason fresh off of a SB appearance, thinking the team is going would have made a play for the top OL in Free Agency (Osemele) and used their draft capital to try to trade up to get Taylor Decker instead of drafting a guy they didn't need (Vernon Butler)? I personally can see why he checked out mentally, you can say a lot by your actions (or lack thereof), bottom line, their actions to protect their franchise player has been lackluster to say the least IMO, he's tired of putting his body on the line for a franchise that doesn't value him equally

I agree with this. Last season, he had a significant shoulder injury that he could/should have addressed immediately. Had he opted for surgery, nobody would have faulted him for doing so. He didn't opt for surgery, he played through that shoulder injury.

You don't do stuff like that if you have football as 3rd in priorities.

Turns out that when you use your body as a battering ram in the NFL for several years, injuries eventually start to crop up. Who could have ever predicted this completely unforeseeable sequence of events?

I offered my services to the Jets. Only fair I offer them to Carolina. 

I can throw a football for money. I'm available.

It was a business decision that would impact the first two priorities.
