Cam Newton Famous CTE Expert Calls BS ... That's a Concussion

Cam Newton crumples trying to leave field in scary scene

The NFL revised the concussion protocol after Houston Texans QB Tom Savage was let back into a game following a hit that left him shaking on the ground, though the Texans were not fined.

The team soon indicated he'd been cleared of a concussion.

What's at issue with Newton's hit is that he was not taken to the locker room for evaluation as the National Football League required when the protocol was revised this season.

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

Newton exited the game briefly after a big hit from Saints defensive tackle David Onyemata.

After a slew of field goals to open the game, the Carolina Panthers finally got in the end zone when Cam Newton found Greg Olsen with less than 13 minutes to go in the game. Medical personnel looked at him as a he took a seat, and Newton missed one play as Derek Anderson relieved him.

Coach Ron Rivera and general manager Mary Hurney said the Panthers followed the proper procedure, saying Newton had an eye injury and was not concussed.

The team then announced that Newton had sustained an "eye injury", which was relayed by the Fox broadcast.

"We did everything the right way", Hurney said (per the Charlotte Observer).

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