Reports out of Carolina suggest that Panthers head coach Ron Rivera may not start quarterback Cam Newton.
It has been suggested all week that Newton (ribs) would be able to play against Tampa Bay so not seeing him under center would be a surprise.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport says that Rivera wants Newton on the field but is concerned about him being hurt and missing more time.
If Newton is unable to go than Derek Anderson would start for the Panthers. Tampa Bay is the favorite in this one.
