Cam Newton is still dealing with a foot injury that he re-aggravated in last week’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and it is likely going to cost him at least one game.

Newton missed practice again on Thursday, which almost certainly means he is not going to play Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.

Kyle Allen, an undrafted free agent out of Houston last year, is in line to start in place of Newton. Allen appeared in two games for the Panthers last year and made one start late in the year when Newton was shut down with a shoulder injury. He completed 20 of 31 passes for two touchdowns and no interceptions across two games. Coincidentally, Allen’s start would come against former Texas A&M teammate Kyler Murray. Allen and Murray both played at Texas A&M and competed for a starting job in 2015 before both transferring.

Newton’s injury has been described as a mid-foot sprain. It’s the latest in a string of ailments he has had over the past few years, and the Panthers are probably playing it safe with him in hopes that it won’t linger.
