Cam Newton has been out of action since Week 2 with a foot injury and after weeks of rehab, the Carolina Panthers’ quarterback is still not ready to return to the field.
Now, Newton will spend this weekend considering his options on how to proceed with his plan for recovery after a visit to noted foot and ankle specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Green Bay.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport:
While there is no timetable for recovery, Newton is expected to be sidelined several weeks and potentially more. As the Panthers enter Week 9 — with Kyle Allen starting against the Titans on Sunday — time is running out for the former league MVP.
That brings Newton to his decision, one that he’s weighing after returning home from seeing Anderson, the former assistant team physician.
Being placed on injured reserve is on the table for Newton, sources say.
A decision is expected to come on Monday.
