News: Though he was a full participant in Friday night's practice, Newton (ankle) said afterward that he is still not 100 percent, reports. Impact: If there were any real concern about his ankle, Newton probably wouldn't be on the practice field in late July. He may need to build up strength and flexibility, but he shouldn't be at much risk of further injuring himself. Newton underwent surgery Mar. 19 to tighten ligaments in his left ankle, but arguably the bigger concern is Carolina's lack of explosive receiving targets. With Steve Smith and Brandon LaFell headed elsewhere, the Carolina receiving corps is led by Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant, Kelvin Benjamin and Tiquan Underwood. It would be a huge boost to Newton's case if Benjamin, the 28th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, quickly emerges as a threat. There will be a bit of continuity, as tight end Greg Olsen is back for a third season with the Panthers.(RotoWire, )

News: GM Dave Gettleman said that Newton -- who underwent surgery on Mar. 19 to tighten ligaments in his left ankle -- has been cleared to practice in training camp. Impact: Meanwhile, coach Ron Rivera expects Newton to participate fully in practice as training camp progresses, unless the QB suffers any setbacks. Now that he has been cleared, Newton will have a chance to build chemistry with the team's revamped receiving corps, which now features the likes of Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant, Tiquan Underwood and first-rounder Kelvin Benjamin.(RotoWire, )

News: Newton (ankle) was limited in his mobility, while participating in throwing sessions with Panthers receivers last week, the Charlotte Observer reports. Impact: Newton got together with his entirely new group of pass catchers to build familiarity before training camp, but still experienced certain limitations stemming from his ankle surgery in March. Although Newton missed virtually all of Carolina's offseason activities, he remains on schedule in his recovery, so it's not surprising he's still shy of a 100 percent bill of health. Nonetheless, it's encouraging to see Newton organizing with the Panthers' revamped receivers to quickly build chemistry and make up for lost reps earlier this summer. Expect Newton to push his ankle more as training camp progresses, although his workload could be on the lighter side to get started.(RotoWire, )
