Cam Newton has officially been ruled out of Sunday’s contest against the Houston Texans.
Newton is still nursing a right ankle sprain that was reaggravated in last week’s loss against Tampa Bay. Rivera said yesterday that Newton was day-to-day and that he was still the starting QB but that the Panthers would rely on Kyle Allen moving forward.
There is no timetable for when Newton could return but unless he is 100%, the Panthers should stick with the QB that gives them the best chance to win right now. And that’s Allen.
