Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton, a former Auburn star, missed Monday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after suffering a concussion the week before.

However, the Panthers got some good news on Thursday, when Newton was a full participant in practice, according to Pro Football Talk.

The Panthers also received some bad news, though, as LT Michael Oher is still dealing with a concussion he suffered and will miss this weekend’s game.

The Panthers are scheduled to take on the Saints in New Orleans on Sunday afternoon. Carolina, at 1-4, needs a win to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.
