National Football League investigating Panthers again for potential violation of concussion protocol

National Football League investigating Panthers again for potential violation of concussion protocol

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton went to the sideline after sustaining a vicious sack from New Orleans Saints defensive tackle David Onyemata in the fourth quarter of the teams' wild-card matchup.

According to the policy, if the protocol was not properly followed, the team is subject to discipline. Nonetheless, Newton was tested and cleared.

On Monday, Carolina players, coaches and interim general manager Marty Hurney met with reporters to wrap up the season.

Under recent modifications made to the NFL's procedures for evaluating and dealing with possible concussions suffered by players during games, any player who stumbles or falls must be taken to the locker room for evaluation. He was replaced by Derek Anderson, and, as he moved toward the sideline, Newton went to the ground and appeared to be pointing toward his right eye. And when told that Newton's outfit was actually called a romper, Jordan replied, "The romp-him?"

The Bills had not featured in the play-offs since losing 22-16 at this stage in 1999, and had not reached the divisional round since 1995.

The league and the players union changed its concussion protocol last month after Houston Texans quarterback Tom Savage returned to the field after having a concussion that left the quarterback's hands shaking after a hit.

This isn't the first time the Panthers have been investigated for how it has handled the protocol.

'NFL concussion protocol should have dictated taking out Cam Newton and examining him immediately after direct hit to his head, ' Pat Leonard wrote.

"Even if he was faking an injury to buy time, since he went down right after a massive head impact, the new National Football League concussion protocol dictates he had to go the locker room for a full evaluation", Nowinski wrote.

Later in the year, Newton said, "I didn't know he was a fan of my dress code". He said after the game the issue was with his eye, not his head. "And again, from that point on I don't think anything else needs to be said about it". We saw him rock back and forth. "If he wants to send me his address I can send him some sauce". Jordan said. "Look, he like spun".
