NFL Looking Into Panthers' Handling Of Cam's Protocol

NFL Looking Into Panthers' Handling Of Cam's Protocol

The NFL and NFL Players Association on Monday launched a joint formal investigation of the Carolina Panthers' handling of the injury suffered by quarterback Cam Newton during Sunday's loss at New Orleans in an NFC first-round playoff game.

The NFL and NFLPA determined the Panthers properly followed the protocol in that case. The post contained a picture of the Jordan-brand wine bottle and a mailing label addressed to Newton at Panthers headquarters. "We are in contact now with the Panthers' medical staff and we will not comment further until those conversations are completed", a statement from the National Football League tweeted by Rapoport read.

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

Newton walked toward the Panthers' sideline and appeared to stumble to the turf as trainers met him a few yards from the bench area.

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.

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.

But the inquest into how the Panthers handled what looked like a head injury to Cam Newton is just beginning. The founding C.E.O. of the Concussion Legacy Foundation tweeted, "This "Cam Newton's visor poked him in the eye" is the greatest storyline in the history of sports".

A major blood shortage is being reported by the American Red Cross , and officials are asking the public to help by donating. OBI is urging donors to give blood at the donor centers or mobile blood drives.

Newton missed only one offensive play after he was evaluated in the medical tent on the Panthers sideline and cleared to play.

Leading up to the Week 13 game, Newton remarked on Jordan's fashion and joked he could "send him some sauce".

No violations were found in an investigation of the Houston Texans' decision to clear quarterback Tom Savage despite visible concussion-like symptoms on the field.

Newton spent time on the ground after the hit.

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

"I'm not here to make that type of judgment", Jordan said in the Saints' postgame locker room. I hate that I couldn't do enough to get a win today for a lot of guys that I think so highly of.
