Newton completed 27-of-40 attempts for 275 yards, with two touchdowns, an interception, and 43 rushing yards on nine carries during Sunday's 23-17 loss to Washington.

EDGE Analysis

The polarizing Panthers quarterback stood on the 16-yard line, facing a second down with the ball in hand and an opportunity to get Carolina to 4-1 on the season. Newton entered the decisive moment having completed a stellar 27-of-37 passes, but when it counted most, it was Washington's defense that stepped up in the clutch situation by forcing three consecutive incompletions to seal the victory for the Burgundy and Gold. Newton and the Panthers now face a Week 7 road trip to Philadelphia, to take on the defending champions and an Eagles' secondary ranking 20th in passing yards allowed per game.

Newton completed 21 of 35 pass attempts for 237 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions Sunday against the Giants. He also carried eight times for 29 yards in the 33-31 win.

EDGE Analysis

Newton connected with six different receivers as he notched his second-highest yardage output of the season. He connected with Curtis Samuel for a 25-yard touchdown to get his team on the board and later found Christian McCaffrey for an 18-yard score in the fourth quarter. Newton did commit multiple turnovers for the first time this season and in part allowed the Giants to come back and take a late lead, but he engineered a last-minute drive to set up a long field goal to win the game as time expired. All in all it was another solid effort from Newton, but fantasy owners will hope for more next Sunday against the Redskins.

Newton completed 15 of 24 passes for 150 yards and two touchdowns while adding 36 yards and two more touchdowns on 10 carries in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Newton tied the game at 7-7 late in the first quarter with a two-yard rushing score, then broke that tie on the next drive with a four-yard passing touchdown to Devin Funchess. He hooked up with C.J. Anderson for a 24-yard score on a screen pass later in the first half and picked up his second rushing touchdown of the contest from five yards out in the third quarter. This was another physical contest for Newton, so he'll be glad to rest up with a bye next week.

Head coach Ron Rivera said Newton is doing "fine" after taking a bit hit in Sunday's game, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Newton took a vicious hit to the head from the Falcons' Damontae Kazee in Sunday's game which led to Kazee being ejected, but Newton was able to finish the contest, and was apparently no worse for the wear afterward. Barring any unforeseen symptoms throughout the week, expect Newton to be good to go for the Panthers' Week 3 matchup with the Bengals.

Newton completed 32 of 45 passes for 335 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in the Panthers' 31-24 loss to the Falcons on Sunday. He also rushed five times for 42 yards

EDGE Analysis

Despite the team loss, Newton performed admirably on an individual basis, heavily utilizing ace pass-catching back Christian McCaffrey and wideouts Devin Funchess and Jarius Wright in the absence of Greg Olsen (foot). The tally represented a major boost in production for Newton, who'd only managed 161 yards passing in a Week 1 victory against the Cowboys. The rapport he demonstrated with multiple pass catchers Sunday was certainly encouraging, and he'll look to carry over the momentum into a Week 3 battle versus the Bengals.

Newton completed 17 of 26 pass attempts for 161 yards while adding 58 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries during Sunday's 16-8 win over the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

While Newton struggled to a paltry 6.2 yards per attempt, he made numerous plays with his legs and wound up leading the team in rushing. He scored a four-yard rushing touchdown in the second quarter and orchestrated a 63-yard scoring drive to stretch the lead early in the fourth. Newton clearly needs time to build a rapport with his new supporting cast and will have to cope without Greg Olsen (foot) after his injury, but his rushing ability still affords him a solid floor for fantasy production. He'll look to improve upon this season debut next week against the Falcons.

Newton completed 11 of 17 passes for 142 yards and rushed twice for 13 yards in Friday's 25-14 win over the Patriots in the third preseason game.

EDGE Analysis

Newton's night was headlined by an injury scare after he dove head first on a run during Carolina's opening drive, resulting in him fumbling while landing awkwardly on his neck. The Panthers were able to recover the fumble, but Newton subsequently went to the team's injury tent for evaluation, forcing backup quarterback Taylor Heinicke to fill in. Fortunately, Newton was able to return to the action after missing just four plays, and went on to finish the first half. In doing so, he performed quite well once again, continuing to show improved efficiency under new coordinator Norv Turner. So far this preseason, he's connected on 26 of 38 passes for 315 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Always unlikely to play in the last exhibition outing, Newton's injury scare should only provide another reason to sit him, as the Panthers will be relieved they escaped a more serious situation.

Newton returned to Friday's preseason contest against the Patriots, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Newton took a hit, lost the ball in the process and left the contest for a visit in the sideline tent. After some time on the sideline, he was good to go and proceeded to hit top wideout Devin Funchess for a seven-yard gain. Considering he reentered the game, Newton should be good to go moving forward.

Newton (undisclosed) left Friday's preseason game against the Patriots, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

While scrambling for a first down, Newton was upended and lost the ball, which Christian McCaffrey recovered. Newton immediately consulted a trainer and went to the sideline tent for further evaluation. It remains to be seen exactly what he may have injured.

Coach Ron Rivera said Newton and the other starter will play through the first series of the second half in Friday's preseason game against the Patriots, Joe Person of The Athletic Carolina reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rivera wants to see how his starters handle halftime adjustments before he turns the game over to players competing for roster spots. Newton has already been rather busy this preseason, completing 15 of 21 passes for 173 yards with a touchdown and an interception in two games. He threw a hideous pick in last week's win over the Dolphins, but his completion percentage (71.4) should make new offensive coordinator Norv Turner happy.
