Cam Newton might be in jeopardy of missing the Carolina Panthers’ opener against the Los Angeles Rams on Sept. 8.
Panthers coach Ron Rivera said “there is no timetable” for the quarterback’s return, two days after Newton suffered a left mid-foot sprain in a preseason game against the New England Patriots. Newton exited the stadium in a walking boot and X-rays detected the sprain.

General manager Marty Hurney expressed hope Newton will play in the opener. Rivera wouldn’t go that far, only declaring he is “cautiously optimistic” that Newton will soon be on the practice field.

So we’ll begin to focus in on what we need to as time progresses.”
