Cam Newton fans have been eager to see their quarterback return to the field to play MVP style football. Last season was one that Newton would love to forget after his Carolina Panthers finished with a disappointing record of 6-10 just one season after making it to the Super Bowl. Newton suffered a shoulder injury last season as well which required surgery at the end of the season. He's been recovering this summer has had minimal participation in training camp and has missed the team's first two preseason games.

Now, it appears Cam will be ready for the Panthers third preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. It may be the perfect game for him to make his return as the Jags are struggling to find a starting quarterback at the moment.

According to ESPN, Newton has fully participated in team drills this season. Head coach Ron Rivera and Cam's teammates all are excited to have their starting QB back healthy.

Wide receiver Russell Shepherd talked about the return of his teammate and how important it is to Newton to get back out on the field.

"One thing I've learned in my short time with him is he loves football. He's going to be happy."

Head coach Ron Rivera also gave his input on his feelings about the return of his starting QB.

"I'm excited because it will be an opportunity to see him with all the different type of players we brought in, the playmakers we thought we had. It should be fun."

New weapons for Cam on offense

Christian McCaffrey was drafted as the 8th overall by the Panthers in this year's draft out of Stanford University.

Aside from Newton, the rookie running back has been the most anticipated player fans have been eager to see play a game this season. In last week's game against the Titans, McCaffrey carried the ball for 33 yards and a TD and also caught 3 catches for 39 yards. His speed with the size and help of Jonathan Stewart can provide Cam with a ground game that will allow him to put less pressure on his throwing arm. Also, McCaffrey has already proven he can catch the ball out of the backfield and make big plays down the field.

How Newton will turn Kelvin Benjamin into an All-Pro receiver

Since he's arrived, Kelvin Benjamin missed the best season of Cam Newton's career in 2015 due to an injury that kept him out for the year. Unfortunately, last season was not too good for both players and the result, in the end, was Benjamin finishing the season with just 63 catches for 941 yards. However, the Panthers and Newton still expect the 6'5 245-pound wideout to have a breakout season this year. He caught over 1,000 yards in his rookie season in 2014 and will be eager to prove he is the player many people believed he would be after a stellar finish to his college career at Florida State.

If he and Cam can eclipse what they did in 2014, Kelvin will easily be an All-Pro receiver this season.
