Newton played every snap in Sunday's win over Arizona

by

Cam Newton appeared on the New England Patriots’ injury report for the first time Wednesday.

The quarterback was limited in the Patriots’ first practice of Week 13 with an abdomen injury, according to the team.

Newton played every offensive snap in Sunday’s 20-17 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. He absorbed a heavy hit from linebacker Isaiah Simmons on the game’s final drive that drew an unnecessary roughness penalty.

Newton has started 10 of New England’s 11 games this season. He missed the team’s Week 4 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs after testing positive for COVID-19.

A total of 11 Patriots players were listed as limited Wednesday, including cornerback J.C. Jackson, who suffered a hip injury against the Cardinals:

LB Ja’Whaun Bentley (groin)
DT Adam Butler (shoulder)
DT Byron Cowart (back)
S Kyle Dugger (toe)
K Nick Folk (back)
TE Ryan Izzo (hamstring, hand)
CB J.C. Jackson (hip)
G Shaq Mason (calf)
QB Cam Newton (abdomen)
ST Matthew Slater (knee)
RB J.J. Taylor (quad)

Linebacker Anfernee Jennings missed practice with an illness.

Cornerback Stephon Gilmore and wide receiver N’Keal Harry both were removed from the injury report.

The Patriots are scheduled to practice at their facility Thursday and Friday before departing for Sunday’s road matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers.
