Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has been ruled out for Monday night's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers because of a concussion.
The league's MVP hasn't practiced since taking a helmet-to-helmet hit in Sunday's 48-33 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
Derek Anderson will start for Carolina in Newton's place.
It's unclear when Newton will return. The Panthers visit the New Orleans Saints on Oct. 16 and then have a bye the following week.
Panthers Coach Ron Rivera described Newton as “antsy,” adding that “he can't help himself.”
This is only the third game Newton has missed...
