NFL, NFLPA launch joint review of Cam Newton concussion protocol

NFL, NFLPA launch joint review of Cam Newton concussion protocol

Interim general manager Marty Hurney insists the Carolina Panthers handled the medical treatment of quarterback Cam Newton "the right way" during Sunday's 31-26 playoff loss to the New Orleans Saints.

The Panthers could be subject to discipline from Commissioner Roger Goodell if the league and union determine the team violated the NFL's concussion protocols.

"We are in contact now with the Panthers' medical staff and we will not comment further until those conversations are completed", the National Football League said in a written statement issued through a spokesman.

Newton exited Carolina's wild-card loss to the New Orleans Saints after taking a hit to the head in the fourth quarter.

But the Panthers' announced Newton instead was tested for a concussion in the blue sideline tent, cleared and permitted to return to the game. - after missing only one play.

Newton was evaluated for a concussion in the medical tent, and was cleared to return. The Saints won the game, 31-26, sacking Newton on the game's final play.

'I know it was precautionary things for a concussion, but it wasn't a hit to the head it was my eye, ' he said.

According to the revised rule, a player is required to go to the locker room for evaluation if he is found to demonstrate "gross or sustained vertical instability (e.g., stumbling or falling to the ground when trying to stand)". A sideline concussion evaluation is not considered sufficient under those circumstances.

However, the question could become whether or not Newton should have been taken to the locker room for evaluations.

The changes came in conjunction with a decision not to punish the Houston Texans for their handling of a concussion suffered by quarterback Tom Savage.

After the game, Newton and Coach Ron Rivera said Newton had been hit in the eye.

But on Twitter, viewers shared memes blasting the Panthers for not following the concussion protocol. After the Week 3 game, Jordan made some jokes about Newton's fashion choices. "I think Ryan Kalil is a hell of a player, and Matt Kalil, speedbump". "We're going to send him a nice little bottle of Jordan wine".

"Based on what the young man (Newton) said to me, that is what I believe happened", Rivera said. Jordan said. "Look, he like spun".
