National Football League to look into Panthers' handling of injury to Cam Newton

Panthers officials reiterated Monday that Newton was following instructions from the sideline to take a knee so backup quarterback Derek Anderson could loosen up. He also made one of the most important plays late in the fourth quarter when a near-sack resulted in intentional grounding on Newton, helping the Saints prevent the Panthers from coming back.

He was examined by medical personnel and was cleared to reenter the game. "But when he walked off and he told the trainers he got poked in the eye, then they did take him into the tent and checked him for a concussion, which he did not have", Hurney said.

"My helmet had come down low enough over my eyelid and it got pressed by the player's stomach".

Under recent modifications made to the NFL's procedures for evaluating and dealing with possible concussions suffered by players during games, any player who stumbles or falls must be taken to the locker room for evaluation. 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.

Forecast: Freezing temperatures over the weekend, snow Monday
That's the real-world implications of a National Weather Service wind chill advisory, which will be in effect until 8 a.m. For this weekend, the temperature will drop to about 9 Friday night with a wind chill value of zero.

But on Twitter, viewers shared memes blasting the Panthers for not following the concussion protocol.

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. "But again, I'm not the doctor", Rivera said. The odd thing about that is that Newton was wearing a visor. "Apparently, supposedly, allegedly there's guys somewhere in the sky boxes that are watching that. A little fazed? He wasn't unfazed". He said after the game the issue was with his eye, not his head.

"Yeah, you know, Carolina picked him up so the brothers could reunite", Jordan said. He was down. He's a hell of a competitor. He had the typical Cam Newton face on after a sack. "We romped him good". "If he wants to send me his address I can send him some sauce".
