CHARLOTTE https://www.carolinapanthersfanshop.com/hats , N.C. (AP) — When Cam Newton starts throwing the football again in meaningful games, the Panthers want to make sure he’s doing it the right way.Carolina’s coaching staff is placing an added emphasis on improving Newton’s throwing mechanics as the 30-year-old quarterback continues his recovery from arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder.Newton threw about 20 passes to stationary targets on the first day of mandatory minicamp Tuesday.Newton has done some light throwing before, but these were his first tosses in front of reporters since undergoing surgery in January.The team promoted the event on Monday, announcing it would be live-streamed for fans to watch. But there wasn’t much to see.The 2015 league MVP didn’t overexert his arm, essentially throwing light warmup passes of less than 15 yards to teammates. He did not participate in team drills.Panthers coach Ron Rivera said the goal is for Newton to return to using the mechanics he displayed early in the 2018 season before developing shoulder soreness and struggling in the second half of the season.“If you go back and look at some of the things that happened earlier in the year before the shoulder injury, you can see the improvement, you can see the footwork and the development,” Rivera said. “When the shoulder started to go, everything just kind of fell to the wayside. Now he has an opportunity to go back, rework those things and do the things he needs to improve.”Rivera Carolina Panthers Hoodie , a former NFL linebacker, said he couldn’t describe in detail exactly what tweaks the Panthers are trying to make with Newton’s mechanics, joking that he can teach about how to tackle but not how to throw a football.Newton offered no insight either, running by reporters after practice without stopping for interviews.Rivera said Newton is going through the steps of his injury rehabilitation and the team is pleased with his progress.“He did exactly what we had scripted out and made some targeted throws,” Rivera said. “We will see how he feels today and (Wednesday), and that will dictate how much more he does” in minicamp.Rivera’s expectation is that Newton will be cleared to practice fully when training camp begins in late July. Rivera said he’s eager to see Newton in his second year in coordinator Norv Turner’s offense.“You saw the growth and the progression and he will now be in the second year of the system,” Rivera said. “Understanding exactly what he needs to do as a quarterback. The decisions he needs to make, is going dictate a lot about his throwing style as well.”ROSTER MOVE: Carolina signed free agent linebacker Sione Teuhema and waived defensive tackle T.J. Barnes. Teuhema participated in the Panthers’ rookie minicamp last month and most recently played for the Arizona Hotshots of the Alliance of American Football. CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Cam Newton’s status for Sunday’s game at Arizona is uncertain after the 2015 league MVP reaggravated a mid-foot sprain.Newton did not practice Tuesday and Panthers coach Ron Rivera gave no timetable for his QB’s potential return, saying “He’s going to get his treatment Russell Color Rush Shepard Jersey , we’ll see how he feels and we’ll adjust to it as we go through it.”Rivera said backup Kyle Allen would make his second career NFL start for the Panthers against Arizona if Newton isn’t able to play. Rivera said that means the Panthers (0-2) will have to circle the wagons with four of their next five games on the road.“Does it change things (if Newton is out)? Yes, it changes things dramatically,” Rivera said. “If we’re going to go to end up going with Kyle for a while, yes, we have to find out who we are with him as the quarterback. And going on the road it is going to be a little bit of a challenge.”Rivera said he first learned that Newton’s foot was sore after Carolina’s 20-14 loss to the Buccaneers Thursday night, although he told reporters after the game “don’t worry about the foot.” After four days of rest and treatment, Newton reported to the team’s headquarters on Tuesday morning but didn’t feel ready to practice.“He’s going to do everything he can to get back out as soon as he can,” Rivera said.Newton was not made available for comment Tuesday.The 30-year-old Newton originally sprained his left foot in Carolina’s third preseason game against the Patriots but returned to practice in time for the regular season opener. The Panthers have since stumbled to a poor start, losing to the Rams and Buccaneers at home.Newton’s lack of production has been a major reason why.He ranks 31st in the NFL in passer efficiency rating (71) among qualifying QBs and has completed just 56 percent of his passes for 572 yards with no touchdown passes and one interception. As a runner, Newton hasn’t been effective either Jordan Scarlett Jersey , carrying five times for minus-2 yards with two fumbles, leading to some questions about his long-term future with the team.Newton has not thrown or run for a touchdown in his last four games dating back to last season when he was plagued by shoulder injuries.He joins a list of high-profile NFL quarterbacks who could be on the sideline this weekend.Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) is out for the season, New Orleans’ Drew Brees (hand) is out indefinitely, Jacksonville’s Nick Foles (collarbone) is on injured reserve and Eli Manning of the New York Giants has been benched.Panthers safety Eric Reid said if Newton is out any length of time he would “welcome” the team signing former 49ers teammate Colin Kaepernick, who remains a free agent. But Reid expressed little hope that would happen, reiterating that he feels league owners won’t sign Kaepernick because of his stance on protesting racial and social injustice.“The Panthers have not approached me about Colin, but I would welcome that,” Reid said. “As you alluded to, there are a lot of quarterbacks around the league who are in need of a quarterback. Colin is sitting by his phone.”However, Rivera said he doesn’t expect the Panthers to sign an experienced quarterback at this time https://www.carolinapanthersfanshop.com/Christian-Miller-Jersey , even though Allen and rookie Will Grier only have one career start between them.“I don’t think so,” Rivera said. “The guys we have here, we brought them here for a reason.”Allen’s only NFL start came in Week 17 of last season when he led the Panthers to a 33-14 win over the playoff-bound Saints, completing 16 of 27 passes for 266 yards with three total touchdowns.“Kyle balled last year,” said Panthers wide receiver Jarius Wright. “He came in fully committed to being the starting quarterback and he did his job. He also gave us a chance to do our jobs. Any time that happens you can live with that. It’s that next man up mentality.”
