The Carolina Panthers will sit Cam Newton for the final two games of the season as he deals with a sore throwing shoulder.
Marty Hurney confirmed Wednesday that Newton will be inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons.
Newton has been battling soreness in his right shoulder since throwing 22 passes in the fourth quarter of a comeback victory against Philadelphia on Oct. 21.
Newton said nothing he has tried, from acupuncture to massage, has worked.
"You can't rub magic dust on it, go to this or that person, have the placebo things done where you think certain things are what they are -- and you come out and you're still the same,'' Newton said at the time. "Over the past couple of weeks, nothing has really changed.''
