VIDEO: Cam Newton Dazed From Anesthesia After Surgery is Hilarious

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton underwent surgery on his troublesome shoulder last month, and the injury was apparently bothering him a lot more than people thought late in the season.

Newton said this week that he was unable to throw the ball more than 30 yards down the field by the end of the 2018 season. He says defenses recognized that and exploited it.

Newton threw just two touchdowns compared to six interceptions over the final three games he played in, and the Panthers eventually decided to shut him down. Now we know why. If the former Auburn star couldn’t throw the ball more than 30 yards, it makes sense that he was subbed out on this play.

The procedure Newton underwent was arthroscopic surgery, so he should be ready well in advance of training camp. But given his history with injuries to his throwing shoulder, nothing is a guarantee.

We’ve all been there before. Before undergoing an extensive procedure at the hospital or the dentist’s office, you get hit with anesthesia, and you drift out of consciousness. You family and significant other film it to share on social media. Well, when undergoing ?shoulder surgery this offseason, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton suffered the same fate. In his first ever YouTube vlog, Newton was filmed getting injected with anesthesia, and even bet with the nurse that he would not get knocked loopy. Well, Newton lost that bet, and it provided for some great comedy.
