The Panthers said they will not start Newton until he is 100% healthy. This week, the Panthers travel to London so odds would likely favor Allen getting another start. The team follows up their London trip with a bye in Week 7 meaning Newton could be back for Week 8.
Head coach Frank Reich said, "He rolled it up pretty bad. I kind of had a sense when we walked off the field because I saw that it didn't look good. The longer we were off the field there it just stiffened up. He tried, but there was no chance."
Reich said Wentz will undergo further evaluations. Jacob Eason replaced Wentz in the fourth quarter. The Colts visit the Titans in Week 3.
