    CHARLOTTE     Panthers head coach Matt Rhule confirmed Friday what was largely expected.

    Cam Newton is starting Sunday against the Washington Football Team.

    Rhule said Newton "will take the first snap," but also mentioned that P.J. Walker will be active and have a role.

    He wouldn't get into many of the particulars, but as Newton's continuing to learn the offense, there are still parts of it that Walker's naturally more familiar with since he's been here two seasons to Newton's one week.

    "We have plays for Cam, plays for P.J.," Rhule said. "P.J. we think is an excellent quarterback, Cam can make a difference, so we'll use both of them."
