Charlotte, N.C. • Cam Newton says he feels great and "there's no doubt" in his mind he'll be ready to play in the Panthers season opener Sept. 7 against Tampa Bay.

Carolina's fourth-year quarterback is recovering from a hairline fracture to multiple ribs and says he's improving with each day.

Newton says, "I'm moving forward and trying to stay optimistic about this process."



Panthers coach Ron Rivera says he certain Newton will play in Week 1.

Newton will travel with the team to Pittsburgh but will not play against the Steelers Thursday night in the preseason finale.

Newton, who has never missed a start in three seasons, says he'll continue to receive treatment so "when I'm called upon I won't have to hold back."
