CTE Expert Calls BS on Cam Newton's Claim of an Eye Injury

The NFL and NFL Players Association plan to conduct a joint review to determine if the Carolina Panthers followed the correct concussion protocol with quarterback Cam Newton in their 31-26 playoff loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. The Seattle Seahawks were fined $100,000 by the NFL last month for their handling of a concussion evaluation of quarterback Russell Wilson after the league and players' union determined that the protocols had not been followed properly in that case.

The NFL said it was in contact with the Panthers medical staff.

Newton took a hard hit in the fourth quarter in which he claimed his helmet came down over his eyes and hurt his right eye.

Panthers officials maintained Monday that Newton, following instructions from the sideline, took a knee so backup QB Derek Anderson could get warmed up.

The Panthers later announced that Newton had been cleared to return to the game after being evaluated for a possible concussion. The Saints won the game, 31-26, sacking Newton on the game's final play. He said after the game the issue was with his eye, not his head.

Medical personnel attended to him as he sat on the field, then took him to the medical tent on the sideline for evaluation.

The Panthers' handling Sunday of Newton's injury drew criticism by Chris Nowinski, the founding CEO of the Concussion Legacy Foundation. Any player showing "gross or sustained vertical instability" following a hit is now required to be evaluated for a concussion in the locker room, according to the NFL's updated concussion protocol.

"I appreciate him. So I'm gonna send him some sauce", Jordan said after the game, via ESPN.

But that price is a pittance for a multi-billion-dollar franchise, so the question of whether the punishment for clubs found to be guilty of not following the rules could become an offseason topic of debate. He was surprised to see Newton return to the game, he said. "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.

"I thought we had a chance to score on that last drive", Rivera said, "and I kind of feel like that was taken away from us".

"Carolina picked him, so the brothers could reunite", Jordan said.
