On Thursday night, Carolina Panthers fans held their collective breath last night when star quarterback Cam Newton left with an injury.

Newton took two sacks on the night, and the final appears to have resulted in an injury.

As he attempted to escape the rush, Newton evaded a few defenders before getting tackled behind the line of scrimmage. After the play, Newton limped off to the sideline and was ruled out for the rest of the game.

Initial reports suggested he suffered a foot injury.

On Friday morning, there were conflicting reports as to what exactly the injury is. NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reported Newton suffered a sprained foot.

However, ESPN's David Newton said the star quarterback suffered a sprained ankle.

Newton left the stadium in a walking boot, concerning fans everywhere. However, the injury does not appear to be serious in nature.

We probably won't see Newton for the rest of the preseason, though there's only one game left.

The 30-year-old quarterback is scheduled to undergo more tests Friday morning to determine the extent of the injury. He previously injured his left ankle in 2014, an injury that required surgery.

Stay tuned for the latest on Newton's ankle/foot injury.
