Browns defensive finish Myles Garrett says Newton continues to be a risk, regardless of battling a sore proper shoulder.
“It simply seems like he is sort of exerting himself greater than standard to get off these longer throws,’’ Garrett stated Friday (through cleveland.com) “He is forcing the ball.
“He does not appear to be he did at the start of this season and final yr, so it (shoulder) may be biting at him, however we have to play him like he is Tremendous Cam.”
Browns cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun stated Newton’s unhealthy outing towards the Bucs was simply “a kind of days.”
“You by no means know so I simply really feel like it’s a kind of issues the place you possibly can’t count on him to return in right here and throw us 4 picks after he simply threw 4 picks,” he stated. “He’s going to return in right here and he’s going to be able to go.’’
Newton, who had been designated as questionable earlier within the week on the damage report, was a full participant in follow Friday and is ready to begin Sunday regardless of his sore shoulder.
