CHARLOTTE – Quarterback Cam Newton, who sat out Sunday's win at Arizona, will also miss this week's game at Houston with a foot injury.
"What Cam needs right now is time and rest for his foot. We want him at 100 percent when he's ready, so there's no exact timetable for his return," head coach Ron Rivera said. "At this point, we're going to go forward with Kyle (Allen) as our starter."
Allen went 19-for-26 with 261 yards with four touchdowns and a 144.4 passer rating against the Cardinals to improve his career record to 2-0.
