Carolina Panthers star quarterback Cam Newton, who led the National Football League team into last year's Super Bowl, underwent surgery Thursday to fix a partially-torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder.
Dr. Pat Connor performed the surgery Thursday at Carolina Medical Center.
Vermillion said Newton will begin his rehabilitation on Monday. The 2015 NFL MVP played the remaining three games of the regular season following the injury. If he hits those benchmarks in stride, he'll have achieved full health approximately one week before the start of training camp, which is now the desired projection, Marc Sessler of NFL.com reports.
Newton underwent shoulder surgery Thursday, James Palmer of NFL Network reports. "However, as we worked to advance him into the next stage - the strengthening stage, the throwing stage - he started to have an increase in his pain level and started having pain while throwing".
All eyes are on Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.
"He's gonna have to rebuild his confidence".
"It was shook", Rivera said Wednesday. "Let's be honest. I'm not going to lie about that", Rivera said on Wednesday in Phoenix. Because of the injuries that we suffered on the offensive line. "It just kind of shows the importance and significance of protecting your quarterback".
