Kyle Allen is Starting Panthers QB vs 49ers, as Cam Continues Foot Rehab

Cam Newton will continue his foot rehab, as backup Kyle Allen will get the start against undeafeated San Francisco

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Panthers coach Ron Rivera ended any suspense over his quarterback situation, saying Kyle Allen will remain the starter when Carolina visits the unbeaten San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

Allen is 4-0 as Carolina's starter this season since taking over for the injured Cam Newton.

Rivera says Newton will work with trainers this week at practice, but isn't sure how much - if at all - the 2015 league MVP will practice. Newton has missed four games with a mid-foot sprain and hasn't practiced since a Week 2 loss to Tampa Bay.

The Panthers return to practice Tuesday.

Allen, who went undrafted in 2018, has helped dig the Panthers (4-2) out of a 0-2 hole to start the season. He has the fourth-best QB rating (106.6) in the league.
