Ron Rivera left a press conference early on Thursday when asked questions about Cam Newton.

"Cam was in meetings [Thursday]," Rivera said. "He was inside for treatment. [Kyle Allen's] preparing as if he's going to start and we'll have have more clarity tomorrow as we continue to go forward. Tomorrow we should have a good feel for where he is and we'll go from there."

The Carolina Panthers' coach left moments later.

Newton is battling a foot injury and hasn't played well this season. He didn't practice on Thursday and reports claim he was still wearing a walking boot on Wednesday.
