Quarterback Cam Newton suffered a hairline fracture in one of his ribs against the New England Patriots, the Carolina Panthers announced on Sunday. Head coach Ron Rivera said Newton will not play in the final preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers but should be available for Week 1. Newton took a knee to the back against the Pats on Friday. He was wearing a protective flak jacket, but the contact happened in the crease of the equipment.
