CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera talked last month about limiting Cam Newton's carries. Well, that hasn't happened.
That's because Newton is simply too darn dangerous with his legs.
The Heisman Trophy winner from Auburn has already run for nine touchdowns in 10 games this season, including two last week against the Detroit Lions. He's already shattered Vince Young's record for touchdown runs by a rookie quarterback and has set his sights on Steve Grogan's all-time record of 12 set in 1976.
Newton, who is second on the Panthers in yards rushing, said he's not worried about taking big hits, saying he actually feels safer when he breaks the pocket.
He'll look to add to those touchdown totals against the NFL's worst defense Sunday when the Panthers visit the Colts.
