Doctors told Panthers wide receiver Torrey Smith there was no structural damage to his right knee. Whether he will be ready to face his former team, Baltimore, on Sunday remains to be seen. As far as the feud between safety Eric Reid and Philadelphia's Malcolm Jenkins, both friends of Smith's, the wide receiver said hopefully that is done. But there's always the playoffs of that happens.

The Misconception about Eric Reid and Malcolm Jenkins (1:10)

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he talked to Eric Reid sometime after the game about Reid's pre-game feud with Philadelphia safety Malcolm Jenkins. He said Reid explained his reasons for what happened and he didn't think what happened carried over into the game. “I thought he handled himself on the field during the game the way he needed to,'' Rivera said. “He played very physical as he always has for us so far. In fact, I think he played pretty well.'' Regarding Reid's late interception that was overruled on replay, Rivera said, “I just feel fortunate that we were able to win the game twice. I feel good about that.''

Panthers injury update: Defensive end Mario Addison took a hard shot to the lower back and is, in the words of coach Ron Rivera, "pretty stiff.'' Addison will be evaluated as the week goes on regarding his status for Baltimore. Wide receiver Torrey Smith is dealing with a knee injury after hitting the ground hard in the fourth quarter. "I don't think there is any structural damage involved,'' Rivera said. "He's going to see the doctor this afternoon to make sure everything is OK.''

Sunday's fourth-quarter comeback against Philadelphia was Cam Newton's career 15th, which is more than Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers, who has 13. So is Newton underrated: “I think he is,'' coach Ron Rivera said. “He gets overlooked because of his style of play. It's not a prolific style. He's not a pure, pure pocket passer, although there are elements of his game where he plays very well from the pocket. Given the success he's had, the fourth quarter comebacks are a lot about his desire and wanting to win.'' Rivera compared Newton's desire with the game on the line to Michael Jordan's. “Certain guys want the ball. Cam always wants the ball.''

Newton converts 4th down with incredible effort (0:20)

Panthers wide receiver Torrey Smith limped out of the locker room apparently headed for X-rays. His 35-yard fourth down catch gave Carolina a chance to complete comeback.

The 21-17 victory over Philadelphia may have only tied the biggest come back (down 17) in team history. But it may one day be regarded as the biggest in that it moved the Panthers to 4-2- made them a legitimate contender in the NFC this season with their first road win.
