The Carolina Panthers have shut down quarterback Cam Newton for the rest of the season. Newton has been battling a shoulder injury.
With the Panthers already out of the playoff race, there is no need to potentially injure him anymore. Taylor Heinicke is expected to start against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.
The Panthers have lost their last six games. They have lost won since November 4th in a 42-28 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

This season, he went 6-8 in 14 starts. He has gone 320 of 471 for 3,395 yards. He also had 24 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.
His best game of the season was a 20-19 loss to the Detroit Lions on November 18th. He went 25 of 37 for 357 yards with three touchdowns and an interception.
He only had three games during the season when he had 300 or more passing yards. Besides the loss to the Lions, he went 28 of 41 for 300 yards in a 24-17 loss to the Buccaneers. He also had two touchdowns and four interceptions in the contest.
He also went 32 of 45 for 335 yards in a 31-24 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 2. He also had three touchdowns and an interception in the game.
