Panthers LB Kuechly to miss Bears game; Benjamin to play

Panthers LB Kuechly to miss Bears game; Benjamin to play”

For Newton, that meeting was supposed to take place on Wednesday, but it didn't happen because the Panthers quarterback didn't show up.

Not only does the defense have to worry about Panthers' quarterback Cam Newton throwing to them, but they have to be alert of Newton's ability to run.

According to ESPN, he sat at his locker and played loud music during the open media session.

Interestingly, the reporter at the center of Newton's faux pas, Jourdan Rodrigue of the Charlotte Observer, was back on the Panthers beat this week.

Rodrigue was the reporter who Newton laughed at during a press conference back on October 4. Reporters asked the coach about Newton during his question and answer session.

But it still seems like he might have some beef with Rodrique in particular, which is curious considering she's been praised for her knowledge by all who work with her and didn't seem to be attacking Newton with her questioning two weeks ago. Less than 24 hours after making the comment, Newton lost a key sponsor (Dannon) and ended up making an apology to women everywhere.

However, Rodrigue has been missing from the beat since the aftermath, when years-old tweets she wrote were dug up that contained inappropriate and racist language.

It's been two weeks since the Cam Newton/Jourdan Rodrigue press conference incident happened, where Newton found it amusing that Rodrigue asked a question about routes. They were first to find the endzone, with Cam Newton taking it in himself on a very well-designed option play, but they couldn't contain the Eagles offense for long, and either side of half time Zach Ertz caught a touchdown to put the lead into Philadelphia's hands, one they would not relinquish as the Panthers struggled in the red zone to make consistent conversions. A team spokesman said Newton didn't offer a reason for his absence. "I thought he had a press conference today, but apparently not".

National Football League players are subject to fines for not talking to the media.
