NFL Looking Into Panthers' Handling Of Cam's Protocol

Cam Newton Newton took a blow to the head during the fourth quarter of the Panthers 31-26 loss

During the fourth quarter of the Carolina Panthers' 31-26 wild-card playoff loss to the New Orleans Saints, quarterback Cam Newton took a vicious shot from Saints defensive tackle David Onyemata.

The 28-year-old was assessed at pitchside - and the Panthers said on their Twitter account he was "evaluated for a concussion and cleared".

According to the policy, if the protocol was not properly followed, the team is subject to discipline.

The review took more than a month to conclude.

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.

Newton stayed in for the rest of the game that saw him throw a 56-yard touchdown pass to rookie running back Christian McCaffrey on the third play after he returned.

He was then taken into the medical tent but quickly came back onto the field, without having gone into the locker room, which is required after the National Football League updated the concussion protocol guidelines on December 29. Newton later said he did NOT feel like he had a concussion, but suffered an eye injury from his helmet slipping down. "We did everything the right way". He was replaced the next play, but as he made his way off the sideline he stubbled and needed help to get back up off the field.

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

It was determined that proper safety guidelines were followed in that case.
