Panthers optimistic Cam Newton will be ready for opener

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Panthers general manager Marty Hurney is "cautiously optimistic" Cam Newton will be ready for the Sept. 8 regular season opener against the Los Angeles Rams after the quarterback suffered a left mid-foot sprain in a preseason game.

Newton injured his foot in Carolina's 10-3 loss Thursday night at New England on a sack.

Newton was trying to avoid pressure in the first quarter when he got tripped up and landed on the turf. He hobbled to the sideline and grimaced in pain on the bench before walking under his own power to the locker room.
