The season was a rough one for the Panthers and more so for QB Cam Newton, and today the quarterback finally put 2018 behind him as he had surgery on his right shoulder.
It was that shoulder that caused him so many issues this season hopefully can be put to rest as he recovers and gets ready for the 2019 campaign.
The QB this past season threw for 3,395 yards with 24 scores and 13 picks, but he simply wasn’t the same QB down the stretch.
The team stated that Newton has “an arthroscopic procedure on his right shoulder Thursday. The procedure was successfully performed by Panthers team physician Dr. Pat Connor. Newton’s rehabilitation process will begin immediately.”
The team shut Newton down for the final two games of 2018, as the team was not going to make the postseason, and Newton was not the same QB as he was earlier in the season.
