Rivera: 'No plans' for Cam Newton (ankle) to run less

ESPN - [Full Article]

Panthers HC Ron Rivera said there are no plans for Cam Newton, recovering from left ankle surgery to tighten ligaments that have been bothering him since college, to run less in 2014. He believes Newton will be stronger than ever once he fully recovers, likely by the start of training camp.

"We don't want to take away a weapon,'' Rivera said.

Fantasy Impact: 

Newton has finished in the top 4 in each of his three seasons in the league, but his PPG has dropped from 22.9 to 20.6 to 18.7 during that span. His WR situation is also worrisome.
