Cam Newton ankle surgery "successful" say Carolina Panthers doctors

Published Add your comment

According to the physician for the Carolina Panthers, Cam Newton's surgery for an ankle issue was successful.

It was announced yesterday that Newton would undergo surgery for an ankle problem that's been bothering him. We know nothing more than that on the injury other than it came at the end of last season for the former Pro-Bowl QB.

The team physician Robert Anderson preformed the surgery and told the official website that he did not find anything unexpected in the procedure.

Hopefully with a good recovery period, this shouldn't affect any of the teams training camps or preseason plans. It would be interesting to know what the injury was however.

Especially seeing that Cam Newton is a very run happy mobile QB, there will be a lot of eyes on his ankle and seeing what happens during the training camp.

With a good six months until the season starts in earnest and just over four until preseason begins, there'll be plenty of time for us to see how his recovery progresses.
