Panthers Owner Not Worried About Cam Newton Missing Practice Due to Lockout

Panthers owner Jerry Richardson said that he’s not “overly stressed” about the instruction the draft’s No. 1 overall pick, Cam Newton, is missing out on as the lockout lingers.

“The Panthers are going to be like everybody else and (Newton’s) going to be like everybody else, so we all have to adjust and deal with what we have to deal with,” Richardson told Dan Parr of Pro Football Weekly at the conclusion of the NFL owners meetings in Indianapolis. “I’m not really overly stressed out about it, personally.”

Newton has been studying Carolina’s playbook and working out with former NFL QBs Ken Dorsey and Chris Weinke in Florida, but he will join his Panthers teammates for player-organized workouts next week in Charlotte.

“We all would (like to see Newton playing sooner rather than later),” Richardson said. “We’re all playing by the same rules. If we weren’t, then it would be a different deal.”
