Got Game: Should Cam Newton Play In Preseason Opener?

Got Game Crew Weighs In On Whether Or Not QB1 Should Play Against The Bears

The Panthers open up their 2019 preseason on Thursday night in Chicago, should Cam Newton play against the Bears? Got Game’s Kelli Bartik, Zach Aldridge, Hannah Oliveto and QCB discuss the pros and cons.

The starting quarterback underwent surgery on his throwing shoulder in January. While Cam has looked good so far this training camp, should the team take the risk and play him in the preseason opener?

After Sunday’s practice in Spartanburg, Ron Rivera was asked if Newton would start under center. The Panthers head coach didn’t give a definitive answer.

“Well, as the plan goes, the plan will unfold and you guys will get a chance to see it,” Rivera said.

Thursday night can’t get here soon enough.
