Panthers quarterback Cam (not Campbell) Newton has been dealing with a right shoulder issue in recent days. He still is.

Newton was limited in practice on Wednesday, only two days after playing at Washington and three days before a Christmas Eve game against the Falcons. He had an MRI last week, and at times on Monday night seemed to be favoring his right arm.

While the Panthers have a convoluted path to the postseason, their division rivals badly need a win.

Carolina players missing practice included defensive end Charles Johnson (hamstring) and tight end Greg Olsen (elbow). Receiver Kelvin Benjamin was also limited with a back injury.
