CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Carolina Panthers on Friday officially ruled quarterback Cam Newton out and named Kyle Allen the starter for Sunday's game in Arizona against the Cardinals.

Rokie QB Will Grier is available to play in his first real National Football League game if anything happens to starter Kyle Allen.

Newton did not practice during the week after re-injuring his foot during the Panthers' loss to Tampa Bay during Week 2. He completed 20 of 31 passes for two touchdowns and no interceptions across two games. Exhausted of questions about Newton's injury, Rivera walked out in the middle of his daily press conference earlier this week. He entered the season with a career passer rating of 86.4 and 4,808 rushing yards, the third-most for a quarterback in National Football League history.


The Panthers' starting quarterback for Week 3 is still TBD.

The Panthers will play three games and have their bye week prior to that Week 8 contest.

"I think the effort has been there, the resiliency, the mental toughness, all those things", Kingsbury said.


"I just asked you to ask me questions about somebody else, " Rivera said.

After asking reporters to move on to talk about the upcoming match-up against the Cardinals - Rivera suddenly made his exit from his presser after about 2 minutes as he got increasingly annoyed with Cam questions. "If not, there's no reason for me to stand here". "I'm not going to do this anymore". That's when Rivera decided he had enough.

Cam Newton is not playing in Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals, according to a Panthers injury report.
