Cam Newton will throw during drills for first time since surgery
Cam Newton continues to ease himself back into action ahead of the 2019 season.
The Carolina Panthers quarterback is set to throw during all drills starting Tuesday during the team’s minicamp, according to Max Henson of the team’s official website. This will be the first time he has done so since undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his throwing shoulder after the 2018 season.
Though Newton has yet to participate in team drills, Panthers head athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion described the quarterback as “pain-free” and having achieved “every milestone” set for him in his recovery process.
Newton looks to be on schedule. He’s been doing other work to prepare him for this, and appears to be determined to be not only ready to play, but in peak form by the start of the regular season. He appears to be on his way to pulling it off.
