Cam Newton will start for the Panthers on Sunday.
Just two weeks after walking away from a massive car accident in Charlotte and sustaining a pair of transverse process fractures in his back, the Pro Bowl quarterback will return to the field against the Browns in a make-or-break game at Bank of America Stadium, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Saturday, per team sources.
The fourth-year signal-caller cleared the final medical hurdle on Saturday, per Rapoport. Newton is playing with an injury similar to that of Tony Romo, which means there will be some degree of pain management. Newton's mobility may be impacted a bit, especially if Mike Pettine loads the box and forces Newton to throw.

Week 16: Romo vs Colts
Usually, Tony Romo is not too happy when December arrives, but that has not been the case in 2014. He has thrown three touchdowns in each of the last two games (both in December) without an interception and pushed his team into first place in the NFC East. The last two games will be relevant for Dallas so expect them to keep the foot on the gas.
The Cowboys will face the Colts this week who are 12th in aFPA to quarterbacks. It will be seen as a shootout between Romo and Colts QB Andrew Luck so the scoreboard operator should be busy. Start Romo in all formats as a strong QB1 for Week 16 and hope the December magic continues.
