Panthers QB Newton (shoulder) to start vs. Browns
Cam Newton cut the ball loose in Friday's practice and received the all-clear from head coach Ron Rivera for the Carolina Panthers' game Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.
Newton missed practice Wednesday with a shoulder injury after throwing four interceptions in defeat last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Rivera said Friday that Newton was able to display touch and arm strength on throws to every level, including down the field, which convinced the Panthers that Newton is ready to roll against the Browns.
"He was showing he can do it, that was the big thing," said Rivera.
