CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton on Sunday shrugged off the impact of a thumb injury on his throwing hand and how it impacted his accuracy in a 35-27 victory over the New York Jets.

But coach Ron Rivera reiterated Monday that the injury that landed Newton on the injury report for two days last week could have been a factor in his quarterback completing a season-low 39.3 percent of his passes.

“That’s possibly why a few of the balls sailed on him,” Rivera said of Newton, who completed 11 of 28 pass attempts for 168 yards.

Rivera said the thumb is getting better, and he didn’t express concern it would be a factor heading into Sunday’s showdown at 8-3 New Orleans for first place in the NFC South.

Offensive coordinator Mike Shula also didn’t express concern, although he admitted early last week “it was a little bit of an adjustment” for Newton throwing with the injury.

Wide receiver Devin Funchess, who caught seven of eight targets for 108 yards, said the “funky weather” could have been a factor in Newton’s struggles.

“The wind was stopping it. It carried some of them,” Funchess said of Newton’s passes. “We all got injuries. You’ve got to play through ‘em. So that’s what he did, as well.

“But the wind was out there carrying the ball, too. You can’t blame it all on his thumb.”

Newton’s previous low completion percentage this season was 53.8 against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Jets game dropped his season average to 60.3, putting him behind his career-best average of 61.7 in 2013.

Newton completed 65.4 percent of his passes in a 34-13 loss to New Orleans in Week 3 but had no touchdown passes and was intercepted three times.

He ran the ball only three times for 16 games against the Saints. It wasn’t until the fourth game at New England that the 2015 NFL MVP was turned loose in the running game. He carried eight times for 44 yards against the Patriots.

He’s averaged 8.6 carries over the last eight games, including nine carries for 28 yards and a touchdown against the Jets.

That, more than the thumb, could be a factor on Sunday.

“Always his threat, I think; teams have to account for that,” Shula said. “We give him a little freedom, and he does a good job with that. He understands that teams have to respect what he can bring to the table running-wise as well.

“As long as he does it with a sound process in mind, that’s going to be helpful.”

Cheap Green Bay Packers Jersey Wholesale From China Sale

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Aaron Jones isn’t lost for the year, but the Green Bay Packers rookie running back could miss a good chunk of the closing stretch because of the knee injury he suffered in Sunday’s win at Chicago.

Jones has an MCL injury and is expected to be out for three to six weeks, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Monday. Jones was hurt on the opening drive against the Bears when his right knee appeared to get caught underneath him as he was tackled by linebacker Sam Acho.

Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed Monday that Jones’ knee is a “multiple-week injury.”

The rookie fifth-round pick is the Packers’ leading rusher on the season with 370 yards on 70 carries (5.3-yard average) and has had two 100-yard games since he was inserted into the lineup in Week 4 after Ty Montgomery suffered broken ribs.

The Packers also could be without Montgomery, who reinjured his ribs on Sunday against the Bears. Montgomery is the team’s second-leading rusher with 273 yards on 71 carries (3.8-yard average). Both Jones and Montgomery have three rushing touchdowns to lead the team.

McCarthy said Monday that Montgomery’s injury was not as serious as Jones’. “I would think he has a chance this week,” McCarthy said.

That leaves two other rookies, Jamaal Williams and Devante Mays, as the only healthy halfbacks on the roster. Williams, a fourth-round pick, finished Sunday’s game after Jones and Montgomery dropped out and rushed for a season-high 67 yards on 20 carries. Mays, a seventh-round pick, was inactive against the Bears and has not had a carry yet this season.

The Packers had a season-high 37 rushing attempts against the Bears in Brett Hundley’s first win since he took over at quarterback for Aaron Rodgers, who broke his right collarbone on Oct. 15. Among the rushes were three Wildcat plays with receiver Randall Cobb taking the direct snap and rushing for minus-1, 6 and 3 yards on those plays.

Cheap JuJu Smith-Schuster Jersey Wholeasle From China

PITTSBURGH — JuJu Smith-Schuster exploded for the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offense on the same day Martavis Bryant was inactive after he made comments on social media saying that “JuJu is no where near better than me.”

Smith-Schuster, who famously lost his bicycle this week and documented the loss on social media, broke the Steelers-Lions game open with a 97-yard touchdown late in the third quarter. On third-and-long, Ben Roethlisberger squeezed the ball between the corner and safety over the middle of the field, and Smith-Schuster did the rest.

“How I saw it was Ben called the play and I was like the middle feels open,” Smith-Schuster explained. “You got to take it. I took it. Ben believed in me and go the job done. It was great.”

Roethlisberger explained that the touchdown was actually set up by an earlier route.

“[The Lions] gave us a coverage where the safety split wide, kind of a 22 man. And JuJu had something similar to that earlier in the game and he tried to kinda juke the guy and then give him an out move and then go up,” Roethlisberger said. “I told him I said, ‘Listen, next time you get that look if it’s a 22 type man, beat ‘em with speed. Just get down there.’ And that’s what he did. And I threw it over the top and I told him, I didn’t know he had that much speed. He said he didn’t either.”

The play was the longest receiving touchdown in Steelers history, and the longest of the NFL season, according to ESPN Stats & Information research.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin benched Bryant over his comments, which also refueled his trade demands, saying the Steelers should give him what he wants and can have “JuJu and whoever else.” Smith-Schuster, 20, slid into the No. 2 receiver role with 189 yards on his six receptions.

After the game, running back Le’Veon Bell called Smith-Schuster the “best player ever under [the age of] 21.”

“Hands down, got a lot of room to grow, for him to be 20 and play the way he plays is unbelievable,” Bell said, “he can block, catch the ball short, go balls, mentally in the game, best player ever under 21.”

At 20 years old, Smith-Schuster is the youngest Steeler to record a 100-yard receiving game. Entering Sunday, Roy Jefferson was the youngest at 22.

The “best player ever under 21″ didn’t celebrate his touchdown in the end zone, however, but he pretended to lock up an exercise bike on the sidelines.

Smith-Schuster also participated in Bell’s celebration of a 5-yard touchdown run in the first half, getting on all fours and serving as the bench as Bell pressed the football, James Harrison style.

The rookie wide receiver has a hand in coordinating the team’s intricate celebrations and says it’s a matter of “bringing my younger generation into the guys. Getting everyone to celebrate more.”

He went into deeper detail in explaining his bike lock celebration.

“So today we had a lot of free time so I decided I got to get a chain so I went to Home Depot down the street, bought a chain and I was like if I score my celebration is going to be the bike thing,” Smith-Schuster said. “So we have the spin bike where … train to warm up your legs, as soon as I scored I went to the bike, grabbed the chain and locked it up and it was fun, to prove that I got my bike back and I’m locking it up this time and with my boys and celebrating.”

Smith-Schuster said the past week has been “crazy,” but he didn’t take Bryant’s comment personally.

Smith-Schuster finished the Steelers’ 20-15 victory over the Lions with 193 yards and one touchdown.
