I guess he got his weeks mixed up?

Cam Newton won't throw at Panthers minicamp -

Just days after saying he anticipated the star quarterback making his return to throwing after offseason shoulder surgery during Carolina's three-day camp this week, coach Ron Rivera "got ahead of himself by one week," Bill Voth wrote on the team's official website.

He thought his schedule was first week participate in parody video of Cam Newton week one, week 2 Cam Newton begins throwing, then mini camp is week three. He got those last two mixed up.

They were quick to point out that it doesn’t indicate a set back for Newton, that he remains on schedule to win the Super Bowl in February.
