Newton practices for 2nd straight day following concussion

BY foxsports • October 13, 2016

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton practiced for the second straight day, another indicator the league's reigning MVP will likely play Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.

Newton missed Monday night's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after suffering a concussion in a loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Oct. 2.

Newton has struggled this season, but playing New Orleans could prove to be a perfect elixir. Newton has thrown 10 touchdown passes and one interception in his last three games against the Saints.

Running back Jonathan Stewart, who has missed the last three games with a hamstring injury, also practiced for the second straight day on Thursday.

Left tackle Michael Oher (concussion), cornerback James Bradberry (toe) and defensive tackles Vernon Butler (ankle) and Paul Soliai (foot) did not practice.
