    Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton underwent surgery on Wednesday afternoon to repair ligament damage in his left ankle.

    The full recovery process is four months, which would take Newton until the start of training camp. However, he could be freed to throw on a limited basis before then.

    "Dr. (Robert) Anderson did not find anything unexpected in the procedure and the surgery went well," Carolina head athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion said in a statement.

    Newton nicked his ankle in a Week 16 victory against the New Orleans Saints, but played in the regular-season finale at Atlanta and in the NFC divisional playoff loss against San Francisco without noticeable issue.

    The team hoped rest would heal the injury, but soreness persisted and it was decided to address it now so Newton would be ready for camp and not miss any games.

    How is this story still not getting any posts.

    The Panthers are having a terrible offseason. HORRIBLE injury right here. Cam needs practice throwing to WR that don't exist. Smith gone, LaFell gone. All he has right now is Olsen
