Cam Newton Hid Extent Of Foot Injury

Sep 28, 2019 10:44 AM

Cam Newton said he was hiding how much his left foot sprain was bothering him before the season. Newton won't return to the field until he is 100 percent healed.

The Panthers have called the injury a midfoot sprain, which technically is a Lisfranc sprain.

"I've decided I will take time away from the game," Newton, 30, said in his first public comments since reinjuring the foot. "This is me being the bigger person and being real with myself and saying, 'Look, what's the ultimate goal you're trying to accomplish? Win the Super Bowl. OK, if you want to win the Super Bowl, this is the step you've got to take.'

"It could very well be a week. Or two weeks. It could be three weeks, it could be four weeks, it could be six weeks. But I have to understand and know if it takes that time, I trust in this team that they will -- we will -- still be in a great situation by the time I get back."

Newton admitted he probably shouldn't have even played in Week 1.

Davante Adams Has Turf Toe Injury

Sep 27, 2019 9:18 AM

Davante Adams suffered a turf toe injury in the fourth quarter of Thursday night's Green Bay Packers-Philadelphia Eagles game.

Adams was unable to put his right shoe on after the game and when asked if the toe was too swollen or too painful to put his shoe on, the receiver said, "I don't even want to try."

He totaled 10 catches for 180 yards, but missed the final 10 minutes of the game.

The Packers failed to score from the 1-yard line and 3-yard line on two drives without Adams.

"It sucks," Adams said. "You feel like in situations like that, you let the team down. Obviously I would've been out there if I could, but I'm in a little bit of pain, and it was tough. With a toe injury and the type of player I am -- what my game is based on is explosion and things like that, so if I can't get out there and really do my thing how I want and I'm in a lot of pain, I'm sure my teammates understand that.

"But it's tough, because I feel like those are the type of moments that I'm built for and I've been able to capitalize in bringing home a win -- or help bring home a win -- for my team in the past, so it sucks."

Drew Brees Feels He 'Can Beat' Six-Week Injury Timetable

Sep 26, 2019 9:26 AM

Drew Brees is expected to miss six weeks with a thumb injury, but the quarterback believes he could return to the New Orleans Saints sooner.

"As far as the timetable for getting back though, they say 6 to 8 weeks. I think I can beat that, but I'm just gonna take it one week at a time and see how things go," Brees said in a radio interview.

Brees revealed that he decided to have an internal brace inserted during surgery, which could expedite his recovery timetable.

"It's something that immediately gives it strength and stability, [which] allows you to start rehabbing right away. You don't have to be immobilized or be in a cast," he explained.
