Panthers' Turner to let Newton run, may tweak QB's mechanics

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Panthers offensive coordinator Norv Turner has no plans to restrict Cam Newton's ability to make plays with his feet. As for the quarterback's throwing motion, well that might need a little tweaking.

The 65-year-old Turner said he returned to coaching because of an opportunity to work again with Panthers coach Ron Rivera - who was on his coaching staff for four seasons in San Diego - and to coach the talented group of offensive players led by Newton.

"He's an amazing player for his position," Turner said Tuesday on a conference call.
