Cam Newton in walking boot; foot injury reportedly not serious

Cam Newton

Cam Newton is beginning this season the same way he ended last year: injured, though there may be some positive news.

Newton left Thursday night’s preseason game between his Carolina Panthers and the New England Patriots after suffering a foot injury. He went 4/6 for 30 yards in three drives before leaving after hurting his foot on a sack.

After the game, NESN’s Doug Kyed shared a photo of Newton in a walking boot.

The top/middle portion of Newton’s foot was being examined on the sideline. That is the location of Lisfranc foot injuries, though the nature of Newton’s foot injury has not been made public.

NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport did share a comforting report for Panthers fans, saying the foot injury does not appear serious.

Kyle Allen, who is battling for a spot on the Panthers’ roster, was 3/6 for 16 yards in the game. Will Grier was 4/8 for 44 yards. The Panthers’ other option is Taylor Heinicke, who passed for 320 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions last season subbing for Newton, who was dealing with a shoulder injury.
