CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Who ever let a little rib injury keep them down?

Not Cam Newton.

Okay, he didn't play, but No. 1 hit the football field anyway on Friday night. Cam was spotted at the Butler-Mallard Creek game, played at Providence High School.

No word on what he was doing there but based on the tweets, fans were happy to see him.

Check out the highlights from the game here.
