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.”

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.
