Panthers QB Newton still struggling after shoulder surgery

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Some of the remaining Panthers fans in a mostly empty stadium let out a sarcastic cheer when Derek Anderson replaced Cam Newton with less than 5 minutes left Sunday in a 34-13 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

Clearly, some are losing patience with the former NFL MVP.

Newton continued to struggle in his third game back from shoulder surgery. He was limited to 167 yards passing and was intercepted three times, finishing with a 43.8 passer rating - the third-worst of his seven-year career - despite facing a Saints defense that ranked 32nd in the league. He was sacked four times .
