The Facts: The Panthers are unsure if Cam Newton will be able to practice this week. It's unlikely that he plays in Week 9.
Diehards Line:Cam Newton will likely have to log a handful of full practices before he returns. That points to a Week 10 return for Newton. Kyle Allen will get the start this week in his final shot at securing the starting role. If he plays well versus the Titans, Ron Rivera and the Panthers' staff will have a difficult decision on their hands.
