Carolina Panthers quarterback has been out of commission since undergoing foot surgery in December, but he’s back on the practice field and looking good.

B/R Gridiron shared a video of Newton working out and throwing again, and there’s a nice portion focusing on his footwork, which looks solid.

Of course, this is a far cry from running around in a game, but it’s fantastic progress.

Newton’s future is unclear at this time. The Panthers have indicated that they are keeping him in the fold this season, but rumors that he is on the trade block have persisted throughout the offseason.

Getting healthy and cleared for football activities is the biggest key to anything that will happen in the future, whether it’s in Carolina or elsewhere.
