Carolina Panthers star quarterback Cam Newton has been released from the hospital after getting into a car wreck on Dec. 9. According to reports, Newton was driving in Charlotte, North Carolina, when another driver, Fort Mill, attempted to pull in front of Newton.
Newton saw the car and attempted to maneuver, but Mill hit Newton’s truck from behind. Newton’s truck flipped during the accident. He was taken to the hospital on a stretcher and initially listed in fair condition. He spent the night in the hospital and was released shortly before noon.
Newton is still experiencing soreness, but is recuperating with his mother and father. Doctors have advised Newton to sit out the next two days of practice, but there is a slight chance of him playing on Sunday.
The Carolina Panthers would likely sit him out for the next game out of an abundance of caution. The Panthers are currently in the playoff hunt in the dismal NFC South.
