The quarterback is officially listed as probable, but coach Ron Rivera wouldn't name a starting quarterback.
"We'll have a good feel tomorrow," Rivera said Friday, but added: "We feel very confident.''
Barring a setback, expect Newton to get the start after just missing one game following a rollover car accident last week, in which he suffered two fractures to the transverse process in his back.
"It adds another dimension," Rivera said of Newton possibly returning. "What Cam does is bring that extra dimension and ability to run.''
