CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Panthers' Cam Newton will "probably" start Sunday against the Cleveland Browns barring any physical setbacks this week, Carolina coach Ron Rivera said after the quarterback practiced on Thursday.

The team increased Newton's workload and Rivera said the fourth-year QB seemed to handle it well. However, the coach was hesitant on naming Newton the starter in case he begins to experience soreness in his back.

"I would say he is on target" to start, Rivera said. "He had a good day and took the reps he was supposed to."
