Orange Newton will start for Carolina Panthers during their Week 11 game against the Washington Soccer Team, head coach Matt Rhule announced Friday. Newton will have his first game for Carolina in just his second game back with the team, having signed him a few days later. Sam Darnold was placed on the injured reserve with a shoulder injury.

Newton had a limited number of plays in his return to the Panthers, but threw and dashed into an encounter in Carolina’s victory over The Arizona Cardinals. He completes 3 4s for 8 yards in 9 seconds, while dashing 3 times in 14 yards. He recorded his 43rd game passing and sprinting to win, the most in NFL history. Newton also extended his record for the most urgent hits ever by a quarterback (71). He is second only to Michael Vick (6,109) in the fastest career yards as a midfielder (5,412). Newton also became the first full-back in 30 years to hit the ball in his first encounter of the season and miss his first pass of the season.

Newton turned the Panthers into a Super Bowl candidate for nine years in Carolina, won the 2015 championship NFL MVP award and lead the organization to Super Bowl 50. Newton threw 29,049 yards and 183 touchdowns during his career with Carolina, both the most in franchise history. He also ranks third on the Panthers all-time plunge list (4,820), and his 59 rushed ground-breaking hits are the most in franchise history.

This will be Newton’s first start with the Panthers since September 12, 2019 (Week 2 of that season), when Carolina fell Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20-14. He will face his former head coach in Ron Rivera, who coached Newton for nine seasons in which Newton won the 2015 NFL MVP award and led the Panthers to Super Bowl 50 that same season.

“I think it’s an opportunity for him to come home, continue where he started,” Rivera said earlier this week in his weekly press release. “It’s a great deal.” Panthers will start Cam Newton in Week 11 against Washington in their second game back with the team
