Cam Newton Injury: Updates on Panthers Star's Leg

Cam Newton suffered a serious scare when his leg bent in an unnatural way during the Carolina Panthers’ final regular season game against the New Orleans Saints.

ESPN’s Christopher Harris reported the following on the injury via Twitter.

Newton and the Panthers were lodged in a close contest at the time of the injury, and the second-year signal-caller refused to let backup Derek Anderson stay in the game for long. Just a few plays later, he came back on the field, as noted by the Panthers via Twitter. 

Panthers fans were likely holding their breath during this brief period, as the replay suggested that the injury was significantly worse than it actually was.

A major leg injury would have been a disastrous end to an already disappointing season for Newton and his team. Carolina came into the game against the Saints with a 6-9 record, and its franchise quarterback has not made any significant statistical improvements from his rookie year.
