CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Carolina Panthers have announced that quarterback Cam Newton will undergo surgery Wednesday on his left ankle and will be sidelined for four months.

The team says the three-year NFL veteran has experienced soreness in the ankle since the end of last season.

The team says the surgery will be performed by team physician Robert Anderson at Carolinas Medical Center and could return before training begins at the end of July.

Panthers head athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion says ''the ankle was sore after the San Francisco game and we wanted to see if rest would calm it down, but it is still bothering him and the decision was made to address it.''

Newton led the Panthers to a 12-4 record last season and the NFC South championship and was selected to the Pro Bowl.
