Panthers coach Ron Rivera says QB Cam Newton got the wind knocked out of him in Friday's preseason game.  X-rays were taken as a precaution and came back negative.

Definitely understandable that the Panthers are being over-protective right now, and rightfully so. The offensive line is still jelling and it's Newton who is the one to suffer as he's going to take plenty of hits if the front-five don't put it together. He still makes for a decent fantasy option because of his legs, but if he starts running less, you might be in trouble with him this year.
