Great news for Carolina Panthers’ fans, quarterback Cam Newton will be present in Sunday’s game at New Orleans after recovering of his injury, according to Coach Ron Rivera on Friday.

Despite he already started practicing with the team the past two days; Newton still needs a final approval from an independent physician. This meeting will take place before Sunday’s game.

Besides Newton, another Panther, running back Jonathan Stewart, who suffered a hamstring injury, will also start after three games out of the field.

These are the players missing (or not starting) next Panther’ game: cornerback James Bradberry ( toe), defensive tackle Paul Soliai ( foot), left tackle Michael Oher ( concussion ), cornerback Robert McClain ( hamstring), and defensive tackle Vernon Butler ( ankle).

Monday night was the third time Newton missed a career start. His team lost 17-14 to Tampa Bay; this dropped their record to 1-4.

We can all remember last year’s 41-38 victory at New Orleans, Newton threw around five touchdown passes, plus the game-winning 15-yard throw to Jericho Cotchery with 1:05 still to play.

Newton has an amazing record over the last three games against the Saints (1-3), he achieved 65.7 percent of his pass attempts for 872 yards and 10 touchdowns with only one interception.

But if you were planning to reach him for questions, it won’t be possible; the player declined all media requests this week.

According to offensive coordinator Mike Shula; there will be no regulations on Newton as a dual-threat quarterback. “That’s his game,” Shula said on Thursday. “We will look at him and talk about it, but part of his game and what makes him so good is that.”

During his NFL career since 2011, Newton has rushed for more yards (3,354) than any quarterback in the NFL, and has 45 rushing touchdowns.

The 6-foot-5 and 260 pound player, is no conventional quarterback, built like a linebacker he takes a lot of punishment. We all have seen him being hit while running, throwing or sacked 11.3 times per game this season, and this is by far the highest rate in the NFL.

“That’s one thing about Cam Newton,” according to Rivera. “We can call a play, and he can drop back and take off running on his own. We’re going to play our offense accordingly.”
