Panthers owner: Team needs backup plan if Newton can't play

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Panthers are preparing for life without Cam Newton next season in case the team's franchise quarterback can't make it back from a lingering shoulder injury.

Panthers owner David Tepper said Tuesday that while the team is exhausting all options to make sure Newton's throwing shoulder gets the medical attention he needs this offseason, it is important to "keep their options open."

The hope, he said, is Newton will be healthy. However, it's been 2+ weeks since Carolina's season ended, and the team still doesn't know if the 2015 league MVP will need surgery.
