While all of these moves should lead to a better team, the Panthers need a healthy Newton to make another serious Super Bowl run. Rivera was encouraged that Newton would be ready for the season opener at San Francisco despite missing two weeks of practice because of pain in his throwing shoulder. Newton returned to team drills Sunday as the Panthers broke camp.
The doctors shut him down. He was going a little too fast, Rivera said. We needed to slow him down, so they did. They had him not doing anything active for a few days, then he started throwing on the sideline with trainers. He’s built it up.
Rivera hopes he can eventually say the same about his entire team when it comes to rebuilding from it 2016 debacle.
I feel strong about who we are, he said. I like the things we’ve done. If we jell and come together as a team, we can get right back to where we need to be.
That’s doing right by the Panther Way.

Kerry Hyder, DE, Lions. Hyder suffered what’s being called a significant Achilles injury Sunday against the Colts and is likely to miss several weeks. It’s a big loss for Detroit, as Hyder led the team with eight sacks last season. The injury occurred when Hyder slipped to the ground while pressuring Colts QB Scott Tolzien.
Denzel Perryman, LB, Chargers. The injury bug keeps biting the Chargers, as Perryman was carted off about 10 minutes into the fourth quarter with a left ankle injury, depleting an already thin linebacking corps. The third-year middle linebacker has been pegged for a bigger role in San Diego this season, including calling the defensive plays.
