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.
