Newton out of hospital
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Carolina Panthers’ quarterback Cam Newton has been discharged from the hospital following a two-car crash on Tuesday that left the two-time Pro Bowl QB with two fractures in his lower back. Team spokesman Charlie Dayton says that Newton has gone home to recuperate with his family and that he is stiff and sore, but otherwise in good spirits.
Newton is thankful to be alive after escaping a horrific-looking automobile accident without any life-threatening injuries.
Newton has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay. Derek Anderson will start in his place.
