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.
Newton dropped to the floor as he left the pitch for treatment, and the league wants assurances that concussion protocols were followed correctly.
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 quarterback took a heavy hit to the head from Saints defensive tackle David Onyemata midway through the fourth quarter, with the game still in the balance.
Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers is checked on the sideline during the fourth quarter at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, January 7.
Newton missed only one offensive play after he was evaluated in the medical tent on the Panthers sideline and cleared to play. Any player showing "gross or sustained vertical instability" following a hit is now required to be evaluated for a concussion in the locker room, according to the NFL's updated concussion protocol. Rivera said during his postgame news conference that Newton was told to sit down near the sideline to give Anderson an opportunity to warm up before going into the game. A sideline evaluation is not sufficient, under the modified rules.
According to Fox Sports' Chris Myers on the broadcast, Newton's visor poked him in the eye, a unusual explanation following a crushing blow.
This is the second time this season the Panthers are being investigated for their handling of Newton as it pertains to the concussion protocol.
Jordan said the hit that Newton absorbed was significant.
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. After the Week 3 game, Jordan made some jokes about Newton's fashion choices.
"I'm not here to make that type of judgment", Jordan said in the Saints' postgame locker room. "We romped him good".
"I don't think so".
"Yeah, you know, Carolina picked him up so the brothers could reunite", Jordan said.
