Cam Newton's Injuries from Car Accident Revealed by Panthers
The 25-year-old quarterback was just blocks away from his team’s Bank of America Stadium when his truck was flipped during an accident.
“Cam Newton is in fair condition and undergoing tests at Carolinas Medical Center and will remain there overnight for observation,” the team tweeted on Tuesday (December 9). “Further testing revealed that Cam Newton has two transverse process fractures in his lower back and no further internal injuries.”
“The quarterback’s injury is similar to what Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo suffered earlier this season. Romo missed one game as a result of the injury,” the team’s press release stated.
