CHARLOTTE DJ Moore Jersey Sale , N.C. (AP) —son because of an injured shoulder, which left him exposed to opposing defenses.Newton said in a 10-minute video it was “the most disheartening thing out of the whole year.”The Panthers quarterback launched a new You Tube channel Thursday, detailing events before and after his surgery on Jan. 24 to repair a nagging right shoulder problem.Newton had arthroscopic surgery to clean out cartilage around the labrum and rotator cuff.The video shows Newton driving a Porsche on the way to hospital the morning of the surgery, his emotions pouring out as he describes how badly he wants to get healthy.He’s shown before surgery in a hospital gown and afterward with a doctor, who tells him Replica DJ Moore Jersey , “the cartilage damage was not extensive as we had feared. … but it was pretty swollen. So if we can get the motion back and keep it, then we will be pretty good.”Newton said he felt “weak” and “vulnerable” at times last season, not fully understanding why he was in pain. But he kept playing, unwilling to give up on the season and a chance at the playoffs.He said the injury impacted his personal life, including not wanting to be around family.“I backed myself into a hole and I was hurting Stitched DJ Moore Jersey ,” Newton said.A few weeks after surgery, Newton was more upbeat and talked about his NFL future.“A lot of people are saying they have seen the best of Cam Newton,” Newton said. “I’m not here to knock on doors; I’m here to kick the (expletives) down. Seeing the doubt and hearing the whispers … fuels me. That is what makes this comeback more extraordinary for me. That is what is going to make me even more dangerous.” The Lions play their next three games at home at climate-controlled Ford Field. They go to Arizona the following week.So it made perfect sense that the Lions would hold Thursday’s practice outside in the snow.Or at least it made perfect sense to coach Matt Patricia, who wore shorts on the 33-degree day.“If I was the coach, you know what we be doing Baby DJ Moore Jersey ,” cornerback Darius Slay said, via Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.The Lions have an indoor practice facility, which former coach Jim Caldwell preferred when it rained or snowed. Patricia obviously has other ideas.Detroit’s only two cold-weather games come later in December with trips to Buffalo and Green Bay.The Panthers, who play at Detroit on Sunday, canceled practice Thursday because of heavy rain in Charlotte. They do not have an indoor practice facility.Which begs the question: How does an NFL team not have an indoor practice facility? Most major college football teams have indoor practice facilities as do many Texas high school football teams.
