The Carolina Panthers have officially shut down quarterback Cam Newton, at least for Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons. The Big Fig has reportedly been having trouble with his throwing shoulder for weeks but has tried to fight through it. With the Panthers running on six straight losses (1-5 ATS) after a 6-2 start, head coach Ron Rivera has decided to pull the plug. Tyler Heinicke out of Old Dominion will make his first NFL start versus the Falcons with Kyle Allen in the backup roll.
