SPARTANBURG http://www.lionsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-austin-bryant-jersey , S.C. (AP) — to throw at training camp following offseason shoulder surgery, Panthers coach Ron Rivera said the team’s training staff will closely monitor the quarterback’s reps, and coaches will script his plays daily.“We have a plan,” Rivera said Wednesday. “Obviously it will be structured around our installation. So the things that we have going on with our install will dictate what he does.”The Panthers arrived at Wofford College for their 25th training camp with plenty of questions, not the least of which is the status of Newton’s right shoulder. It became problematic last season, limiting the 2015 league MVP from throwing more than 20 yards downfield.When the Panthers needed to throw a Hail Mary pass, Newton was subbed out.The 30-year-old Newton sat out the last two games of the season after the Panthers were eliminated from playoff contention. He had arthroscopic surgery in January.When asked if there will be any restrictions on how far Newton can throw the football, Rivera said, “well, we will see.“We believe he is ready to roll,” Rivera added. “He had a good offseason. He had a good break, from what we are told. Again, the proof is in the pudding.”Newton’s rehab hardly is the only question the Panthers have following a 7-9 season. Personnel issues abound with several key veterans gone.Defensive end Julius Peppers and center Ryan Kalil retired, linebacker Thomas Davis wasn’t re-signed, and the team released cornerback Captain Munnerlyn. Between them they had played 43 seasons for Carolina.Middle linebacker Luke Kuechly said it’s strange not having them around, particularly his good buddy Davis, who spent 14 seasons with Carolina before signing this offseason with the Los Angeles Chargers.“It will give me a team in the AFC to root for,” Kuechly said. “I’m going to miss having him here; we’re all going to miss having him. But that is just kind of how the game goes and guys understand that.”Rivera said replacing that experience won’t be easy.The team drafted Brian Burns as an edge rusher to help fill the void left by Peppers Rashan Gary Jersey , and signed free agent Matt Paradis from Denver to take Kalil’s spot. Longtime linebacker-in-waiting Shaq Thompson takes over for Davis, while the team is still looking for a nickel back to replace Munnerlyn. Free safety is another position up for grabs.Also, the offensive line will need to mesh, with Paradis taking over at center and second-round pick Greg Little expected to start right away at left tackle.“We have a lot of new moving parts,” Rivera said. “We lost some savvy veterans who have been around for a long time and they have moved on. So we have some guys who have to step up.”There is also the matter of keeping Greg Olsen healthy. Olsen is the only tight end in NFL history with three straight 1,000-yard seasons, but the three-time Pro Bowler missed 16 games over the past two years after twice breaking his foot. That ended a streak of 144 straight NFL games played.Olsen said he’s been “100 percent (healthy) for months,” adding that his training regimen has been extremely productive.But the 12-year NFL veteran acknowledged the uncertainty that the future holds, saying “I’ve yet to find anything that prevents broken bones. So if you know of anything, let me know.”Carolina did get one major question answered Wednesday as Burns, the team’s first-round draft pick, signed a four-year contract with a team option for a fifth season. That means all of Carolina’s draft picks will be ready to go when practice begins Thursday night.Burns, selected No. 16 overall, was one of three NFL first-round picks who had not yet signed.__ There’s little argument that Aaron Rodgers‘ talent is such that his Green Bay Packers probably should have won more than one Super Bowl by now.For quite some time, there have been those who blamed coach Mike McCarthy for the lack of titles more than credited him for steering the team to that title.Now the world will find out just what Rodgers and the Packers are capable of without McCarthy, who was fired after a 20-17 loss at home to the lowly Arizona Cardinals on Sunday that dropped Green Bay to 4-7-1, its worst start since 2006. It was an abrupt end for McCarthy — who did win a championship, after all — and rare upheaval for a model franchise that last changed coaches during a season 65 years ago.It’s likely other coaches who are in trouble around the league will get a chance to ride things out through Week 17 http://www.packersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-darnell-savage-jr.-jersey , but Cincinnati’s Marvin Lewis, Jacksonville’s Doug Marrone, the Jets’ Todd Bowles and Carolina’s Ron Rivera all should be wary. When Rivera was asked whether he’s concerned about his job security after a 24-17 defeat at Tampa Bay dropped the Panthers to 6-6, this was the reply: “I’m not going to address that question. Do not ask that question again, please.”Alrighty, then.Rodgers is a two-time NFL MVP, and he was the Super Bowl MVP when the Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the big game in 2011, all under McCarthy.Year after year more recently, though, Green Bay would reach the postseason only to wind up with so-close-but-so-far exits.“We’re just not executing well,” Rodgers said, “and it’s the same things over and over.”Not long after those words were spoken, team president Mark Murphy released a statement announcing that McCarthy was gone. Offensive coordinator Joe Philbin will fill in.This season is essentially over; the Packers are a half-game out of last place in the NFC North. Now they can start pondering their future — as can McCarthy.He likely will get another chance elsewhere. Presumably, Rodgers will be given some input on Green Bay’s choice of a new coach. He turned 35 on Sunday, and the opportunities to win a second Lombardi Trophy are fading.In case you missed it, here are other top topics after the NFL season’s 13th Sunday:HUNT NOT QUESTIONEDThe league’s handling of Kareem Hunt’s role in an assault of a woman at a hotel in February is under scrutiny after the reigning rushing champion said he was never interviewed by anyone conducting the NFL investigation of the matter. After the Ray Rice case, in which he punched his then-girlfriend (and now wife), the league hired additional staff to handle such inquiries — but all these months later Elgton Jenkins Jersey , Hunt was still playing until TMZ Sports posted video from a hotel security camera. And he told ESPN on Sunday that the league hadn’t spoken to him about what happened. Hunt also acknowledged lying about it to the Kansas City Chiefs, who released him.BIG MAN TD TIMES TWO!It was a good day to be a big man in the NFL (as long as winning isn’t the most important thing, that is). Two, um, larger guys got into the end zone: Bears defensive lineman Akiem Hicks, listed at more than 330 pounds, plunged in from the 1 for a score that brought back memories of Chicago’s William “The Refrigerator” Perry; Lions offensive lineman Taylor Decker, who goes 6-foot-7 and about 310 pounds, caught an 11-yard TD pass. Hicks became the third NFL player since 1982 with a sack and rushing TD in the same game (“Fridge” was one of the others); Chicago also got halfback Tarik Cohen’s 1-yard, tying touchdown pass off a lateral on the final play of regulation, but ended up losing to the New York Giants 30-27 in OT. Decker’s moment of personal glory also did little for Detroit in what became a 30-16 loss to the Los Angeles Rams, who clinched the NFC West.THIRD TIME’S A CHARMWacky ending to the night game: There were three offsides calls in a row as Chargers kicker Michael Badgley got three tries to make a game-winning field goal — pushing his initial attempt from 39 yards wide left, then getting blocked from 34, before finally succeeding from 29 (so the last flag for a too-early jump was declined) in a 33-30 victory over the Steelers. The Chargers (9-3) erased a 16-point halftime hole; Keenan Allen caught 14 passes for 148 yards and a TD.
