Cam Newton reportedly might practice at Patriots minicamp on Monday

It appears Cam Newton’s right hand injury is close to being fully healed, if it isn’t already.

Newton was “welcomed” by teammates and “threw the ball around a bit” at Friday’s OTA session, according to ESPN’s Mike Reiss. Friday’s practice was the final voluntary session before the three-day mandatory minicamp, which begins Monday. Reiss noted “it wouldn’t be a surprise” if Newton is taking snaps at Monday’s practice.

The injury occurred at the Patriots’ OTA practice on June 4 when Newton’s hand hit a teammate’s helmet during an 11-on-11 session. Newton remained in practice until he aggravated the injury in a later drill.
