The Carolina Panthers are in a bad place right now and it's not getting any better.

Cam Newton had one of the worst performances of his career during Thursday night's loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and now he's absent from Tuesday's practice.

That update did seem grim at first, but shortly after it was revealed Newton aggravated a foot injury and may not be able to take the field on Sunday.

But it gets worse...

The Panthers will be traveling across the country to face the Arizona Cardinals and top draft pick Kyler Murray, which won't be an easy matchup given how well they've performed through two games. The Cards were expected to be a doormat but used a huge fourth quarter comeback to tie the Lions and kept the game relatively close against the powerhouse Ravens.

If the Panthers are without Newton, they truly could be in danger of losing to one of the worst teams in the NFL. Hope you're ready for the Kyle Allen/Will Grier show.
