NFL, NFLPA to review how Panthers handled hit on QB Newton

Cam Newton

In the fourth quarter of the Panthers' wild-card game in New Orleans on Sunday, Cam Newton was drilled by defensive tackle David Onyemata, a sudden shot to the head that blindsided Newton, who was trying to escape other onrushers.

The Seattle Seahawks were fined $100,000, and the team's coaching and medical staffs were required to attend medical training regarding the concussion protocol, after a joint review determined the club did not properly evaluate quarterback Russell Wilson following a hard tackle during a November 9 game against Arizona.

If the concussion protocol was not properly followed the team is subject to discipline, including a $150,000 fine.

The organisation stipulates that any player suspected of having concussion must be evaluated in the dressing room.

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

There's just one problem: Newton never left the sideline, instead going into the medical tent only briefly, which flies in the face of the recent update to the concussion protocol.

The co-founder of the Boston University CTE Center believes Cam Newton suffered a concussion during Sunday's National Football League playoff game. and says Cam's excuse for going back in the game is a joke. "We did everything the right way". He sat out one play, but returned on the next series and finished the game.

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