Newton ahead of schedule, will throw next week

Panthers coach says quarterback Newton to begin throwing next week

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton spent part of Monday's OTA practice stretching his surgically repaired throwing shoulder - as well as his vocal cords.

Kalil's video matches Newton's nearly shot for shot, save a few different scenes and has tight end Greg Olson providing the lip-synching talent.

In any case, Newton being ahead of schedule at this point means the team won't suffer too much.

The Panthers quarterback is expected to begin throwing on the sideline with head athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion at minicamp next week, coach Ron Rivera announced Monday.

Not after Kalil made a parody of Newton's recent birthday music video - actually shot a year ago during a vacation in Central America and not on the 2015 NFL MVP's May 11 birthday on which he turned 28 - from a weekend camping and fishing trip in the mountains of North Carolina.

It likely won't be during team drills. "I'm excited about what he's doing". With the addition of Christian McCaffrey and Curtis Samuel, the Panthers are trying to evolve their passing game to feature more quick passes from Newton.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Thad Matta is out as Ohio State's basketball coach, with the Buckeyes having missed the last two NCAA Tournaments amid an exodus of players.

Newton played through the injury over the final three weeks of the season, something Newton now says he would have re-considered.

The Panthers, entering their third week of OTAs, expect Newton to be fully healthy for the start of training camp in July.
