Frustrated Cam Newton out several weeks, weighing options

Fox News Flash top headlines for November 3 are here.

According to Ian Rapoport at NFL Network, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is expected to miss several more weeks with his foot injury and could be out even longer.

Newton visited Anderson in Green Bay, Wisconsin, on Friday for another opinion because rehabilitation of the foot has not progressed to the point that he can return.

Anderson did not recommend surgery for Newton, who has been out since September 12 because of a Lisfranc injury, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported.

The Carolina Panthers still don't have a timetable for when Newton will be healthy enough to play.

He hasn't played since the Panthers Week 2 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The idea that Cam Newton's season might be over is slowly becoming a reality. Sources say that being placed on the Injury Reserve is a real possibility for Newton.

"He wants to compete so badly", Ron Rivera said.

Kyle Allen has filled in for Newton and is 4-1 as the starter. Newton was diagnosed by team doctors and his personal doctors before seeing Anderson, with whom he had worked before when the specialist practiced in Charlotte. "I did get the sense he was frustrated". Sources told NFL.com that the injured reserve is also on the table for the quarterback, which would end his season.

With Newton's foot injury not getting any better, you have to wonder if we've seen the last of him in a Panthers' uniform.
