Cam Newton

Cam Newton Player Overview

He might not be Superman, but Cam plays a physical brand of QB — and still stays on the field. He’s only missed 3 regular season games in 6 years. And his worst injury was in college: An ankle injury that knocked him out for the entire 2008 season. Heading into 2017, Cam had offseason surgery in late March to repair a partially torn rotator cuff in his (right) throwing shoulder. He’ll likely sit out the preseason, but should be ready for Week 1 if there are no setbacks to his rehab.
