Prayers up for my brother cam! I'm hoping everything is ok!— Jonathan Stewart (@Jonathanstewar1) December 9, 2014
This is the same injury suffered by Tony Romo earlier in the season, which he has played through. Newton is listed in fair condition and owner Jerry Richardson said that he is in "good shape". If Cam can't go this weekend, Panthers quarterback Derek Anderson will assume the reigns.
