CHARLOTTE, N.C. – No news is good news when it comes to Cam Newton and his surgically repaired throwing shoulder.
A day after publicly passing the football for the first time in nearly six months, the Panthers quarterback was back on the field with his teammates for the second day of minicamp.
No setbacks for QB1, instead he picked up the pace.
Newton was still limited but his workload increased, throwing more passes than he did on Tuesday. In addition to stationary targets, Newton’s plan for Wednesday’s workout also included a few moving targets.
Panthers quarterbacks coach Scott Turner continues to work with Newton on his mechanics and throwing motion.
“Making him a little more compact in his upper body. A little more closed off, just so he’s not as open throwing the ball. And just to make him as efficient as possible and putting the least amount of stress possible,” Turner said. “Now, you are going to put stress on your arm throwing the football, it’s not a natural movement. But as little as we can on his shoulder, just to take care of him.”
The Panthers wrap up their 3-day mandatory minicamp on Thursday.
