National Football League to look into Panthers' handling of injury to Cam Newton

  • Cam Newton crumples trying to leave field in scary scene

The NFL's new concussion protocol, implemented on December 11, included the notice that the league will 'require a locker room concussion evaluation for all players demonstrating gross or sustained vertical instability (e.g., stumbling or falling to the ground when trying to stand)'.

In Sunday's wild-card loss to the New Orleans Saints, Newton was hit hard by Saints defensive lineman David Onyemata with about nine minutes left in the fourth quarter.

Newton was clearly shaken up, and as he walked toward the Panthers' sideline, he fell to his knees.

Jordan, a first-team All-Pro in 2017, finished Sunday's game with three tackles, one for loss, one sack and two passes defensed.

"He took a hit".

And Rivera said in a news conference that Newton was told to sit down as he came off the pitch to give his replacement an opportunity to warm up. He was seen on the sidelines with ice on his eye and claimed a visor poked him in the eye, which is why he went down.

But he's made a special exception this year for Kalil; he also thanked the veteran tackle for allowing him to get a sack in the first meeting against the Panthers.

Panthers Coach Ron Rivera and Newton said after the game that the issue was that the player had been hit in the eye.

This is the second time this season the Panthers are being investigated for their handling of Newton as it pertains to the concussion protocol.

However, the question could become whether or not Newton should have been taken to the locker room for evaluations. "I appreciate him. So I'm gonna send him some sauce", Jordan said - an obvious reference to Newton's earlier comments. Hurney said, "We did everything right", when asked about Newton's treatment. The Panthers were cleared in that situation.

The Seattle Seahawks were fined $100,000 in Week 10 after the league and union determined they failed to apply the concussion protocol properly after quarterback Russell Wilson took a blow to the head against the Arizona Cardinals.
