How long is Cam Newton out? Injury timeline, return date, latest updates on Panthers QB

first_imgAs the 2019 season approached, any doubt about Cam Newton’s ability to play quarterback for the Panthers effectively was related to his offseason shoulder surgery. He missed most of Carolina’s spring practices as he recovered, eventually throwing in training camp and erasing much of the uncertainty regarding his ability to throw the ball deep.Then, one play in the first quarter of the Panthers’ third preseason game changed everything. — Aug. 24: Newton sits out practice with what the team is calling a sprained foot. “The doctors feel the more we keep him off of it, the more we keep it elevated, we’re expecting it to take care of itself quickly,” Rivera tells reporters, adding that “there really isn’t any timetable” on the QB’s recovery.— Aug. 23: Panthers GM Marty Hurney offers a glass-half-full assessment of what he described as a “mid-foot sprain” in Newton’s left foot (via The Athletic): “We are cautiously optimistic he will be ready for Week 1.”— Aug. 22: Newton goes to the locker room after hurting his left foot in the first quarter of the Panthers’ Week 3 preseason game against the Patriots. He is ruled out for the rest of the game and is later seen leaving the stadium in a walking boot. “We’re hoping it’s not too bad,” Hurney says after the game. “We’ll find out more (Friday). But I hope it’s not too bad.” (Getty Images) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/ab/7b/cam-newton-110619-gettyjpg_hrpnjridubs61omxhtzweaif6.jpg?t=1100692950&w=500&quality=80 What is Cam Newton’s injury?Though the Panthers initially claimed Newton was dealing with a mid-foot sprain, he in fact has a Lisfranc injury in his left foot. The Athletic originally reported the nature of Newton’s injury, which the QB later confirmed in a YouTube video.According to the Medical News Today, “a Lisfranc fracture is an injury affecting the middle of the foot. It is often confused with a sprain because of the similar causes and symptoms. … a Lisfranc injury can occur in the bones, joints or ligaments of the Lisfranc joint complex in the middle foot.”Lisfranc injuries are difficult to diagnose and treat, which helps explain why the Panthers insisted for so long Newton did not have a timetable for his recovery.According to NFL Media, Newton is considering surgery to repair the Lisfranc injury in his foot. The procedure would come with “a recovery time of eight-to-10 weeks — three months at the most” and would allow the quarterback to be ready for the 2020 offseason program.Cam Newton injury timelineNewton originally hurt his foot in the first quarter of the Panthers’ Week 3 preseason game against the Patriots. He grabbed his left foot after he was sacked on a third down. After receiving attention on the sideline, Newton returned to Carolina’s locker room and was later seen leaving Gillette Stadium in a walking boot.The Panthers told reporters Newton was dealing with a mid-foot sprain, and they were optimistic he would be ready for their regular season opener against the Rams. Sure enough, Newton started against Los Angeles and played again when Carolina hosted Tampa Bay in Week 2.That Bucs game, though, was a disaster; Newton clearly could not run in the Panthers’ loss. After the game, he admitted he had to do some “soul searching” but brushed off questions about his foot injury.A few days later, the Panthers claimed Newton re-aggravated his foot sprain in the Tampa Bay game, adding that he would be evaluated with no timetable for a return. He eventually was ruled out for Carolina’s Week 3 game in Arizona, and again for its Week 4 game in Houston.On Sept. 24, a few days prior to that Texans game, The Athletic reported Newton was dealing with a Lisfranc injury rather than a sprained foot. The plan, though, didn’t change, as Newton continued his recovery process and the team hoped he would return when able.MORE: Where will Cam play in 2020?Newton’s recovery was not progressing as quickly as he and the team hoped, and on Nov. 1, the Panthers announced he would visit a foot specialist and weigh his options. At the time, surgery reportedly was not being considered.On Nov. 5, the Panthers announced the decision they hoped they would not have to make. Newton was placed on injured reserve, a move that all but ended his 2019 season and allowed him to focus on his recovery without taking a spot on Carolina’s 53-man roster.As of Nov. 10, Newton reportedly was considering surgery on his foot, even though the procedure had not been considered prior to his placement on IR. (Getty Images) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/ae/ca/cam-newton-110619-getty-ftrjpg_1wpqoudrc6elt1guyl8d8nbm36.jpg?t=1100667518&w=500&quality=80 On a third-down play against the Patriots, Newton, seeing his first game action since his shoulder surgery, scrambled away from New England’s pass rush but eventually was sacked. He immediately grabbed his left foot. This relatively unsuspecting play might have been the beginning of the end of Newton’s tenure in Carolina.MORE: How the Panthers will approach their breakup with Cam NewtonOn Nov. 5, Newton was placed on injured reserve, a move that all but ended his 2019 season. The foot injury suffered in that Patriots preseason game, initially called a sprain and eventually revealed to be a Lisfranc injury, had not been healing at a rate quick enough for the 2015 NFL MVP to safely return to the field.Because the ninth-year pro has just one year left on his current contract beyond 2019, many including Sporting News suspect Newton’s trip to IR will mark the end of his Panthers career. Of course, he could still return for the playoffs should Carolina reach the postseason.Newton played through his foot injury in the Panthers’ first two games this season, but his disastrous outing against the Buccaneers in Week 2 led him and the team to realize the three-time Pro Bowler needed time to heal.That process, which could still include surgery, is underway as the Panthers move forward with Kyle Allen as their unquestioned starter. Below is all you need to know about Newton’s injury:Cam Newton is headed to the locker room after this play.He is being evaluated for a left foot injury. pic.twitter.com/43C45CgmQl— Sporting News (@sportingnews) August 23, 2019How long will Cam Newton be out?When the Panthers placed Newton on injured reserve on Nov. 5, they all but ended his 2019 season.Players on IR must remain on the inactive list for at least eight weeks before they can return. That means Newton technically could return to the Panthers’ lineup should Carolina make the playoffs. However, Newton reportedly is considering a surgery that would seal his status for the rest of the season no matter how far Carolina advances.Regardless of whether Newton has surgery, SN contributor and former NFL team executive Jeff Diamond believes his time in Carolina is done.”The biggest problem for Newton is his timing contract-wise,” Diamond writes. “Had he negotiated a new deal before the injuries piled up, with $100 million or so in guarantees now common with quality starting QBs, (Panthers general manager Marty) Hurney and coach Ron Rivera would be forced to be patient while Newton recovers from his foot injury before returning him to the lineup next season. But with Newton’s contract having just one season to go, the $2 million dead money hit on the Panthers’ salary cap is easy to absorb while they reap a $19 million cap savings once he is released.”SN’s Vinnie Iyer has pinned the six best fits for Newton in 2020 and beyond should the Panthers trade or cut Newton. Cam Newton injury updates— Nov. 10: NFL Media reports Newton is considering surgery on his foot, a procedure that would come with “a recovery time of eight-to-10 weeks — three months at the most.”— Nov. 5: The Panthers place Newton on injured reserve, effectively ending his 2019 season. “For the past seven weeks, Cam has diligently followed a program of rest and rehab and still is experiencing pain in his foot,” Hurney says in a release. “He saw two foot specialists last week who agreed that he should continue that path prescribed by the team’s medical staff, and that it likely will take significant time for the injury to fully heal. We have said all along that it is impossible to put a timetable on this injury. Nobody is more frustrated with that fact than Cam. He’s one of the fiercest competitors I’ve been around during my 20-plus years in the league. At this time, we have decided that the best decision to reach the goal of bringing the foot back to 100 percent is to place Cam on injured reserve.”— Nov. 3: NFL Media reports Newton is expected to be sidelined several more weeks and maybe more. The team will consider multiple recovery options, according to the report.— Nov. 1: Days after Newton is ruled out for the Panthers’ Week 9 game against the Titans, the team announces Newton is scheduled to visit foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Green Bay, Wisc. “I spent a long time speaking with Cam this week and he’s done everything he possibly can in his rehab process to get his foot to 100 percent,” Hurney says in a release. “Unfortunately, we haven’t reached that point. The next step is for him to go see Dr. Anderson and gather more information.”— Sept. 27: Newton posts a video to his YouTube channel in which he expands on his injury and the psychology of his struggles with the Lisfranc injury. “I can honestly say if we had to do a quarterback sneak or I had to a quarterback run, I don’t know because I would have had to push off my foot,” Newton says. “And for so long I’ve prided myself to say I can get one yard. I’m going to jump over you. I’m going to run through you. I’m going to run around you. And I wasn’t able to do (those things). And I think that’s the thing that humbled me is like, ‘Cam ain’t the player that he used to be.'”— Sept. 24: The Athletic reports Newton is dealing with a Lisfranc injury rather than a sprained foot. From the report: “Multiple sources confirmed Newton is dealing with a Lisfranc injury, in which the ligaments of the mid-foot rupture, causing instability with the joints. Some Lisfranc injuries involve trauma to the small bones in the foot, although the Panthers’ initial wording that Newton had sustained a mid-foot sprain would suggest his is ligament-related.”— Sept. 23: Newton is ruled out for the Panthers’ Week 4 game against the Texans. “What Cam needs right now is time and rest for his foot,” Rivera says in a release. “We want him at 100 percent when he’s ready, so there’s no exact timetable for his return. At this point, we’re going to go forward with Kyle (Allen) as our starter.”— Sept. 20: Newton is ruled out for the Panthers’ Week 3 game against the Cardinals as he recovers from his foot injury. “He felt pretty good at the end of the week,” Rivera tells reporters. “But we don’t want another setback. Want to make sure he’s ready to roll.”— Sept. 17: Newton misses practice thanks to what the Panthers call a re-aggravation of the foot sprain he suffered in the preseason. The team says there is no timetable for Newton.— Sept. 13: In a Week 2 loss to the Bucs, Newton looks terrible while going 25 of 51 passing for 333 yards and a 70.1 passer rating. Newton admits after the game he needs to do some “soul searching” but does not claim he is being impacted by his foot injury.— Sept. 4: When asked about his foot injury days before the season opener, Newton tells reporters, “(I’m) focused on the Rams. I don’t want to dwell on something that’s irrelevant or doesn’t need to be talked about.”— Aug. 27: Rivera tells reporters there is “no doubt” in his mind Newton will start the Panthers’ regular season opener against the Rams. The QB is seen at practice putting more pressure on his injured foot.last_img read more

WHS basketball coach/activities director Brian Buchanan accepts administrative position at Goddard

first_img07-0811-9Brian Buchanan4A1st Round Sub-State boys basketball Brian Buchanan is going to Goddard.by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Brian Buchanan, who is the all-time winningest boys basketball coach in Wellington High School history, has accepted an administrative position at Goddard High School.Buchanan will become the new Goddard High School assistant principal and athletic director. He will not be coaching basketball at Goddard.Buchanan came to Wellington in 2003 where he took over the helm as the Crusader coach. In 2007, he then took over as activities director at Wellington High School. Eventually, he would become the Wellington Middle School activities director as well.He has had an active and diverse role in Wellington. One of his last acts at WHS was hiring a new Crusader football coach – the third in his tenure.“I was not actively pursuing another job,” Buchanan said. “The opportunity presented itself and I decided to take it.”Buchanan is an alumnus of Goddard High School, having graduated in 1993. However, he denies that is the reason why he decided to accept the position. This will be a reunion of sorts with former WHS girls basketball coach Kevin Hackerott, who took over the reins as the girls head basketball job in 2013.The resignation will become official at next month’s Wellington school board meeting.Buchanan’s resignation comes during tremendous turnover in WHS athletics. In the past year, Wellington has accepted the resignation of the head football, head volleyball, head track and now boys basketball coach as well as activities director.“I just want to thank the community of Wellington,” Buchanan said. “It has been a tremendous time for me and my family for a community I have called home for many years.”Buchanan had spent three years at Altoona-Midway, a Class 1A school in southeast Kansas, before accepting a head coaching job at Wellington in 2003. The Crusaders had just completed a 2-19 season and had just one winning season since 1993-94.After two losing season, Buchanan would achieve his best records at WHS in the mid 2000s, where he was 13-9 in 2005-06; 16-7 in 2006-07; and 11-9 in 2007-08. Overall, Buchanan would end with a 125-156 record in his 13 seasons.Buchanan coached one team to the Class 4A state tournament in 2014-15 when the Crusaders beat Rose Hill in the Winfield Regional.Records of boys basketball team since 1993: 15-1611-11Brian Buchanan4A – Div. 1Sub-state Runner up 09-108-13Brian Buchanan4A1st Round Sub-State 02-032-19Jeremy Troutman4A1st Round Sub-State 95-96 N/AGlen O’Neil1st Round Sub-State 97-985-16Scott Reekie1st Round Sub-State 01-021-20Jeremy Troutman4A1st Round  Sub-State 10-1111-11Brian Buchanan4A2nd Round Sub-State 08-0910-12Brian Buchanan4ASemi-final Sub-State Follow us on Twitter.

Wellington really needs to evaluate the pay scale of teachers & staff in the district. It’s going to be difficult to keep good teachers here with the way things are currently.

David Warner picks Rohit Sharma to break Brian Lara’s 400 record in tests

first_imgAdvertisement rnoNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vsckl6clWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre Ebl1v( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) 4m4kWould you ever consider trying this?😱6fdhmoCan your students do this? 🌚9Roller skating! Powered by Firework Aussie opener David Warner picked Rohit Sharma as his favourite to break Brian Lara’s record 400 runs in the longest format of the game. Warner himself was on the verge to break that record when Australia captain Tim Paine decided to declare as the left-handed opener remained not out on 335 in the ongoing second Test against Pakistan at Adelaide.Advertisement “I think, one day, if I’ve to name a player, I reckon it could be Rohit Sharma. Definitely,” David Warner told Fox Sports.Advertisement Sharma who impressed the fans in his first match as an opener with two centuries, helped his side thrash South Africa in their series opener and followed it up with his maiden Test double-century in the third match of the series. One of the most destructive batters in the world in limited formats, Rohit has already established himself as one of the core players in Indian squad.Meanwhile, Warner confessed that it was former Indian opener Virender Sehwag who made him rethink about his career in Test cricket.Advertisement The swashbuckling batsman made a name for himself early in his career as an explosive T20 batsman; but during his tenure at Delhi Daredevils, Sehwag asked Warner to play more red ball cricket and suggested that his performance would get better in Tests than in the shorter formats.“When I met Virender Sehwag while playing for Delhi in the IPL, he sat down to me and said I will be a better Test player than a Twenty 20 player,” Warner said.“(Sehwag) always said to me: ‘What, they have some slips and a gully. Cover is open, mid-wicket is just there and mid-off and mid-on are up. You just play your way and you will get off to a flyer and sit there all day and pick them off’.”“It’s always just sat in the back of my mind. It sounded very easy when we were discussing that,” Warner revealed.Read Also:Virat Kohli: Let Rohit Sharma have fun in testsWatch: David Warner’s hilarious response to an English fan calling him cheatIndia overtakes Australia as most successful chasing side in T20 history Advertisementlast_img read more

Community Builders: Tess Britz and Candice Poole

first_imgFounders: Heartfelt ProjectsWhy are Tess and Candice Community Builders?The saying “charity begins at home” is certainly true of mother and daughter, Tess Britz and Candice Poole. Driven by a desire to make a difference in their community, and an artistic flair and energy that had been lying dormant, they started Heartfelt.Heartfelt is a women empowerment skills project bringing together a group of ladies in the townships to make hand-beaded and embroidered products in South Africa.The project has allowed women who previously had little or no income to put food on the table and restore dignity to their lives.The mother and daughter pair subscribe to the philosophy that one does not have to wait for a big idea or “light bulb moment” to come, but can start by doing something small but significant in another person’s life.In their own words .Candice: “I think it’s very easy for South Africans to make a difference as families, as people together. We often have the attitude that the government will do everything for us, and that’s not the case. If we stand together we can do it ourselves.”Tess: “We cannot control the entire world and what goes on in it, but if we each take responsibility for a small project we are going to make a difference, and that’s the only way we’re going to move forward.”Fast FactsHeartfelt was nominated for Business of the Year by the Roodepoort Chamber of Commerce.The project started off with five women in Alexandra, Johannesburg.Their dream is to expand the project to every major township in South Africa.Candice is a qualified teacher and worked as an educator for two years before starting Heartfelt.Tess is an insurance broker by trade.How can you help?Individuals as well as companies can order items that are tailor-made to their specifications.

Smriti Mandhana: Indian cricket’s new run-machine takes the world by storm

first_imgSmriti Mandhana. Remember the name because this 20-year-old girl from Mumbai is the next big thing in Indian cricket.Of course, it is not like Mandhana has suddenly burst on to the international scene. She made her debut in April 2013 as a 16-year-old and a year later, played her first Test match for India. The women’s team does not play as much cricket as the men’s team and that has resulted in only two Tests and 25 ODIs for the compact batswoman.Despite the lack of regular international cricket, Mandhana is climbing up the ladder steadily. For over two years since her first ODI, she had only three half-centuries to her name. Since February last year, she has two hundreds and three fifties.Mandhana is nothing if not steadfastly determined. Her first hundred against Australia had come in a losing cause and that was not something she was willing to forget.Thank You for all the lovely wishes, really appreciate the support ???. Team did the job for us. @BCCIWomen pic.twitter.com/E7aNGqlVtI- Smriti Mandhana (@mandhana_smriti) 25 June 2017So it was no surprise when she came out all guns blazing in the Women’s World Cup – her 72-ball 90 highlighted India’s victory over England in their tournament opener on June 24. Four days later, she was back against the West Indies and smashed an unbeaten 106 to steer India home in a modest run-chase.There is plenty of talk around 19-year-old Rishabh Pant and how he could possibly succeed MS Dhoni once the legend calls it a day. Mandhana, who is already scorching the international scene does not get half the attention. But that does not reduce her appetite for runs nor does it diminish her sense of occasion.advertisementShe admits there were nerves when she entered the 90s for the second time in a week but batting with the older Mona Meshram certainly helped.”I was quite nervous after 90 but my partner helped me along… Mona told me not to play a rash shot,” Mandhana said as she collected her player of the match award.She certainly had not forgotten how her first hundred had failed to secure victory for India in Hobart against a tough Aussie unit. The knock, therefore, was all the more special.”This knock is special because we were chasing and my first hundred we lost the match, and this comes in the World Cup.”Mandhana will turn 21 on July 18. She is still very young but has a mature head on those shoulders. Over the next several years, the world will hear a lot more of her and her feats with the bat.last_img read more
