Report: Cam Newton suffered a “slight bone bruise”

Mike Florio and Peter King react to Josh McDaniels’ comments about what the Patriots will do at QB with Cam Newton and Mac Jones and evaluate how quickly the rookie could start, despite Newton showing improvements.

Patriots quarterback Cam Newton avoided a significant injury during a Friday offseason workout.

Newton has no broken bones in his finger. Via Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Newton suffered a “slight bone bruise” when banging his hand on a helmet at practice.

Per the report, it’s not considered major. If, however, it wipes Newton out for the balance of the offseason program, it opens the door for rookie Mac Jones to get more reps with the first team.

The situation serves as a reminder that, even during offseason workouts, there’s a risk of injury. Fortunately for Newton, it wasn’t a serious one.
