CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton says that while his surgically repaired ankle is getting better, it's not completely healed.
The Pro Bowl player participated in his first full practice Friday night at Fan Fest since undergoing surgery in March.
Newton looked sharp throwing passes but struggled with his timing on handoffs. He didn't appear to run with a limp until after practice when he jogged over to sign autographs for some of the 36,315 fans in attendance at the team's downtown stadium. The event signaled the official start of training camp.
Newton says: ''I can't stress enough that I'm not 100 percent yet.''
At one point Carolina's trainer checked on Newton during practice, but Newton said it was just precautionary.
Newton says: ''It's just going to take treatment and time.''
