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

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

Newton dropped to the floor as he left the pitch for treatment, and the league wants assurances that concussion protocols were followed correctly.

The court had, however, acquitted six others including former Bihar chief minister Jagannath Mishra in the case. The court also said if he fails to furnish the fine, his jail term would extend by six months.

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.

According to the revised rule, a player is required to go to the locker room for evaluation if he is found to demonstrate "gross or sustained vertical instability (e.g., stumbling or falling to the ground when trying to stand)".

Newton exited Carolina's wild-card loss to the New Orleans Saints after taking a hit to the head in the fourth quarter. As he walked to the sideline, Newton went down to the ground, where he pointed to his eye as trainers checked him out.

Panthers officials maintained Monday that Newton, following instructions from the sideline, took a knee so backup QB Derek Anderson could get warmed up. The Panthers would find the end zone one more time, but it's what happened during the final seconds that has people talking about this game. Newton later said he did NOT feel like he had a concussion, but suffered an eye injury from his helmet slipping down.
