Cam Newton was hit low from behind by Lions DT Ricky Jean-Francois, and immediately went down. The good news is that Newton jogged off the field, but Taylor Heinicke entered the game for the Panthers on third down.
On the Panthers sideline, trainers are attending to Newton’s left knee.
We will update this post as new information becomes available.
UPDATE: Good news: Panthers have announced that Newton is probable to return.
