The Carolina Panthers announced yesterday that Cam Newton underwent an arthroscopic procedure on his throwing shoulder. Their 44-word press release revealed little else about the nature of his procedure [url=]Christian McCaffrey Womens Jersey[/url] , his prognosis, or what specific evidence led team physician Pat Connor to recommend this treatment. Today, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that the team is hopeful Newton will be back and throwing by Organized Team Activities (OTAs). Those begin in May.OTAs are the earliest opportunity for Newton to officially throw passes to Panthers wide receivers and Christian McCaffrey under the supervision of Panthers coaches. That doesn’t mean he won’t be recovered before then and, as optimism goes, there is still every possibility that he takes longer than four months to fully recover.I spoke with Dr. Bradford Parsons [url=]Youth Christian McCaffrey Jersey[/url] , Chief of Shoulder Surgery at the Mount Sinai Hospital, back in December about recovering from shoulder surgery. He shared then that every patient has a different timeline when it comes to healing. It isn’t an exact science.While it is probably good news that Newton had this surgery two months earlier in the offseason than he had his 2017 procedure, the truth is that we don’t know what that means for his recovery. The Charlotte Observer is reporting, through an NFL source, that Newton’s procedure this time was “a clean-up” and not a full repair. This is about as good as it gets within the context of Newton having an injured throwing shoulder. The two things left for Panthers fans to do are wait for further developments and not panic prematurely about either silence or delays in Newton’s recovery process. Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger sat out practice on Tuesday to give his broken left index finger a rest but he is expected to play on Thursday night when Carolina visits Heinz Field.Roethlisberger said the finger was "fine" after he threw the ball 47 times in last Sunday's victory over Baltimore.He did leave the game briefly in the third quarter after getting the wind knocked out of him [url=]Christian McCaffrey Men Jersey[/url] , but he returned after missing just one snap.The 36-year-old is on pace to top 5,000 yards passing for the first time in his career. He came close in 2014 when he tied Drew Brees for the league lead with 4,952. Roethlisberger said reaching the 5,000-yard plateau "is still a pretty big deal" but he is keeping his focus on the team.The Steelers (5-2-1) have ripped off four straight wins to climb into first in the AFC North. The short week means they won't have much time to prepare for the surging Panthers (6-2), which might not be a bad thing. Roethlisberger expects to rely a little more heavily on the no-huddle offense [url=]Color Rush Christian McCaffrey Jersey[/url] , a setup in which he thrives."We've been doing it for a while," Roethlisberger said. "We know it. We know it pretty well. We did it really well in Baltimore, really well, and just being able to pick up the pace and the tempo."The Steelers often turn to the no-huddle in an effort to snap them out of a funk early in games, but Roethlisberger isn't using it as a method of trying to get the ball downfield.While he's on track to set a career high in yards [url=]Christian McCaffrey Jersey Boys[/url] , his production has dipped a bit during Pittsburgh's winning streak. He's gone over 300 yards just once in Pittsburgh's past five games after going over 330 yards in each of the first three weeks.An improved defense has helped. Roethlisberger lit up scoreboards early because the Steelers were trying to keep up with opponents who had little trouble getting to the end zone.That's not happening much anymore. Now that Roethlisberger isn't tasked with trying to play catch up, the Steelers have taken a more balanced approach.Second-year running back James Conner is second in the NFL in yards from scrimmage and Roethlisberger is content to keep throwing the ball underneath to move the chains and keep Pittsburgh's defense off the field. And just like that, Pittsburgh's sluggish 1-2-1 start has become a distant memory."There was no panic in this room early in the season," Roethlisberger said. "That's why we got a good chuckle out of (the media) panicking and the outside world panicking, but for us it was just a matter of playing the next week."NOTES: Right tackle Marcus Gilbert (knee) did not practice and is unlikely to play [url=]Cheap Christian McCaffrey Jersey[/url] , meaning Matt Feiler will make his third straight start. ... NT Daniel McCullers (ankle) also did not practice. ... WR Antonio Brown (coach's decision) and WR Ryan Switzer (ankle) were limited. ... WR James Washington (knee) was a full participant.
