There has been some news regarding the health of Patriots quarterback Cam Newton this week. Newton showed up on the injury report for the first time this year as he's been limited due to an abdominal injury. That has led to some speculation that perhaps it's time to see what backup Jarrett Stidham might be able to do.
The Boston Globe says that will not be the case as all signs point toward Newton remaining at the helm.
