Cam Newton is expected to be healthy enough to return to practice after the Carolina Panthers' bye this week, according to a source.

While Newton has been sidelined with a foot injury, undrafted free agent Kyle Allen has gone 4-0 as the team's starter.

Allen has completed 65.6% of his passes for 901 yards with seven touchdowns, no interceptions and a 106.6 quarterback rating.

Newton struggled through the first two weeks of the season before a mild Lisfranc sprain shut him down.
