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

New Orleans • The NFL said it was in contact with the medical staff of the Carolina Panthers about the handling of an injury suffered by quarterback Cam Newton during Sunday's playoff loss to the New Orleans Saints, trying to determine whether the league's concussion protocols were properly followed. If the concussion protocol was not properly followed the team is subject to discipline, including a $150,000 fine.

However, the question could become whether or not Newton should have been taken to the locker room for evaluations. Newton attempted to walk off the hit, but instead sat down on the field near Carolina's sideline and...

Carolina coach Ron Rivera said Newton was told to stop on the field to give backup quarterback Derek Anderson time 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.

Newton said after the game Sunday that "precautionary concussion protocol things" happened, but "it wasn't my head". Although Newton had eight carries for 37 yards, he threw the ball 40 times, and the Saints feel better about him throwing than running.

But Newton returned to the game after the tent visit, with the Panthers tweeting: 'Cam Newton has been evaluated for a concussion and cleared'.

The NFL and union announced changes to the protocol last month in the wake of Texans quarterback Tom Savage returning to the field after having an apparent seizure after a hit.

According to Fox Sports' Chris Myers on the broadcast, Newton's visor poked him in the eye, a unusual explanation following a crushing blow. "But again, I'm not the doctor", Rivera said.

'NFL concussion protocol should have dictated taking out Cam Newton and examining him immediately after direct hit to his head, ' Pat Leonard wrote.

The Panthers were investigated once before in the 2016 season opener at Denver when Newton took a blow to the head but remained in the game. He was surprised to see Newton return to the game, he said. Jordan said. "Look, he like spun".

"We tried to force him to be uncomfortable, we tried to force him to make errors, and I don't think he made many", Jordan said. "We're going to send him a nice little bottle of Jordan wine".
