PANTHERS QUARTERBACK HOSPITALIZED AS A PRECAUTION

By FITSNEWS  ||  Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was involved in a car crash in downtown Charlotte, N.C. on Tuesday – suffering a pair of “transverse process fractures in his lower back.”

According to WBTV TV 3 (CBS – Charlotte), “the crash happened on the S Church Street bridge at Interstate 277 just after 12:30 p.m.”

“We are closely monitoring the situation of a car wreck involving Cam Newton,” the Panthers organization said in a statement. “We will have more information at an appropriate time.”

The 25-year-old fourth-year signal caller was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure in the aftermath of the crash, WBTV added – quoting law enforcement sources from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

Later, he was described as having “non-life threatening injuries” by Charlotte-Mecklenburg police spokesman Rob Tufano.

A tweet from The Charlotte Observer described Newton as “conscious and smiling” following the wreck.

The 6-foot-5, 245-pound Atlanta native was the No. 1 pick in the 2011 NFL draft after winning the Heisman Trophy and a national championship at Auburn in 2010. After a stellar rookie season in 2011, he’s seen his production taper off over the last three seasons.

Although guaranteed a losing season, the Panthers (4-8-1) remain in the hunt for the playoffs due to the weakness of the NFC South – which features Atlanta and New Orleans leading the division with 5-8 records.

Don’t worry…ya’ll just gave him another excuse for sucking….

You people worship this creep…even as he stinks it up in Charlotte. You purged Tim Tebow from the NFL because he was a challenge to your filthy and jealous religion of liberalism…

Now your god-Cam is failing you – like Obama…You CERTAINLY deserve each other…

No I don’t read Twitter….but I know you HATED Tebow because he had the audacity to publically display a religious belief, in contrast w/ liberalism…

That said: You were for Cam …before you were against him…glad you are joining my bandwagon all of the sudden…but I bet you still hate Tebow…who has more playoff wins that your once-golden-idol….

No one is worshiping Newton or calling him their idol. Will’s favorite QB is Peyton Manning. Care to compare Tebow’s playoff victories with Peyton?

Reach much?

No, a reach is bringing up Tim Tebow, Obama & liberalism in the comments section of a story about Cam Newton being in a car wreck. smh

You can take GrandTango out of the trailer park, but you can’t take the trailer park out of him.

I thought we purged Tim Tebow because he sucked.

Also, Cam isn’t the worst quarterback the Panthers have had to deal with.

Don’t worry, if anything ever happens to Cam they can always get “Famous Jameis” to fill the Over-hyped Criminal Blowhard Washout slot in the Panthers lineup.

Willing to betcha pitcher of ying ling, 1/2 dozen calabash wings and a basket of curly fries that “Famous Jameis” will never take a snap in a pro game

Karma is a B-atch! From stealing laptops to his father getting “pay-to-play” money, this guy has dodged all responsibility for his actions. Now the conflict of the laws of physics and driving skills, p[us a high center of gravity vehicle have gotten its vote.

Quick question for Cam. Does he use his NFL money or his Auburn money to fix the truck? And a side note, too bad Grand Tango wasn’t under the truck.
