In the third quarter of the Carolina Panthers and the Buffalo Bills, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton left the game briefly with an apparent injury. He was sacked by two Bills players.

He stayed down after being hit. He appeared to be limping after getting off the field with the help of trainers.

The team said it was an ankle injury. However, on the following Panthers possession, he returned without missing a play.

When Newton left the field, he went in the new blue medical tents that teams put on the sideline. Derek Anderson, Newton’s back-up was warming up if he had to go in, but he did not have to.

Newton warmed up after leaving the medical tent before returning to the game. He awkwardly crumbled to the ground when he was hit.

Thankfully for Panthers fans, it was not a serious injury. Had they lose the 2015 MVP, their season would be in serious jeopardy, as the offense would struggle.

Anderson started two games last season with the Panthers losing both games. He had two touchdowns and five interceptions in those contests.

Newton was limited in preseason action and had shoulder surgery in the off-season.
