Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton re-injured his foot against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday night.

The star quarterback was spotted in a walking boot on Wednesday morning and is in serious jeopardy of missing the team's game against the Arizona Cardinals this weekend.

One analyst doesn't feel bad for Cam, though.

ESPN's Paul Finebaum was a guest on "Get Up" this morning. During the show, Finebaum took the time to trash Newton for not caring about anyone other than Cam Newton.

"We're not watching the beginning of the end. It is the end. It's over for CAM NEWTON...He's a train-wreck right now. He can't do what he used to do...Forget the sympathy toward him. Cam Newton has never cared about anybody --other than Cam Newton," he said via Michael McCarthy.

It's a strong take from the SEC pundit and especially harsh considering Newton's current injury status.

Newton struggled to move the ball against the Buccaneers on Thursday night. Despite passing for over 300 yards, the former Auburn star completed fewer than 50-percent of his passes en route to the loss.

Now he's in danger of missing the team's game against the Cardinals on Sunday.

Arizona and Carolina kick off at 4:05 p.m. ET.
