CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Panthers coach Ron Rivera hasn't ruled out shutting down quarterback Cam Newton for the season because of a sore right throwing shoulder.

Rivera said Tuesday he plans to meet with Newton later in the week and figure out where he is "in terms of his physical state and mental state" before deciding if he will start Sunday against Atlanta.

"It's a tough situation right now," Rivera added. "Until I get a chance to visit with him I'm not going to speculate."
