The Saints are set to face the Carolina Panthers once more this season, but according to The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, we won’t be seeing much of Cam Newton.

On Monday the Saints officially eliminated the Panthers from the playoff race, leading the team to make the call to bench quarterback Cam Newton for the remainder of the season.

The Panthers have lost their last six games, placing partial blame on Newton’s shoulder injury.

The Panthers say Taylor Heinicke will be starting as quarterback this Sunday against the Falcons, and next Sunday, December 30 against the black and gold.
