Kyle Allen will be getting the start Sunday for the Panthers, after a promising debut as a starter in Week 17 of a year ago.
Allen completed 16-of-27 passes for 228 yards and two touchdowns against the Saints. Exhausted of questions about Newton's injury, Rivera walked out in the middle of his daily press conference earlier this week.
Quarterbacks have been dropping like flies in the National Football League this season.
In the meantime, the winless Panthers put their faith in Allen, who has one career start- a year ago in Week 17 versus the Saints, who sat a number of their starters. He started the team's final game of 2018 after Newton was shut down with the shoulder issue.

The president said Friday that 'it doesn't matter what i discussed, ' and insisted that 'someone ought to look into Joe Biden '. Giuliani initially said, "No, actually I didn't", but seconds later he said, "Of course I did".
"I just asked you to ask me questions about somebody else, " Rivera said. I'm not going to do this anymore, OK? Rivera said. "I told you, I won't know anything until tomorrow, OK?" "The one thing we don't want to do is have another setback". I haven't really talked about Arizona, so it'd be good to answer those kind of questions.
Unfortunately for them, Ron Rivera was in no mood to talk about Cam.
The head coach was then asked where his confidence level was on Newton after he said before the season opener that he was 100 percent confident in Newton.
The injury problems have clearly prevented Newton's play, who looked like a shell of the quarterback he's been throughout his nine-year profession.
