UPDATES & NEWS
The Panthers have exercised their fifth-year option on QB Cam Newton. He's under contract through 2015 now.
No doubt the Panthers were going to exercise the option on their franchise quarterback. The question becomes for fantasy owners though, can Newton be trusted this coming season as he is recovering, supposedly at a rapid pace, from ankle surgery and does he have enough talent around him to make him worth the risk. I am leaning towards no.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Update: Corey Dickerson was removed from Saturday's game with a left quad injury.
While the news regarding Dickerson's plantar fasciitis was positive, he was removed after he fouled a ball off his back leg and is now day-to-day with what the team is calling a quad injury. When his leg appeared to be swollen, manager Walt Weiss opted to play it safe and remove Dickerson who had gone 0-for-3 in Saturday's game against the Giants. Consider him day-to-day for right now and figure he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday. Analysis: Howard Bender
