CTE Expert Calls BS on Cam Newton's Claim of an Eye Injury

CTE Expert Calls BS on Cam Newton's Claim of an Eye Injury”

After New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan produced a sack in the third quarter of Sunday's playoff victory, he began shouting at the Carolina Panthers offensive line.

Newton took a shot to the head area from Saints defensive tackle David Onyemata midway through the fourth quarter.

Newton was clearly shaken up, and as he walked toward the Panthers' sideline, he fell to his knees.

"He took a hit".

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

The league and the players union changed its concussion protocol last month after Houston Texans quarterback Tom Savage returned to the field after having a concussion that left the quarterback's hands shaking after a hit.

But he's made a special exception this year for Kalil; he also thanked the veteran tackle for allowing him to get a sack in the first meeting against the Panthers.

"Even if he was faking an injury to buy time, since he went down right after a massive head impact, the new National Football League concussion protocol dictates he had to go the locker room for a full evaluation", Nowinski wrote.

Newton did not visit the locker room.

"You beat the Carolina Panthers three times in a year, I'm going to have to send this guy a wine bottle, I appreciate him for being that good old quarterback", Jordan said.

Newton said after the game that he was hit in the eye and that he did not suffer a head injury.

Newton said after the game Sunday that "precautionary concussion protocol things" happened, but "it wasn't my head".

"I hate that I couldn't do enough to get a win today for a lot of guys I think highly of", Newton said. It was my eye.

This is the second time this season the Panthers are being investigated for their handling of Newton as it pertains to the concussion protocol.

The Seattle Seahawks were fined $100,000, and the team's coaching and medical staffs were required to attend medical training regarding the concussion protocol, after a joint review determined the club did not properly evaluate quarterback Russell Wilson following a hard tackle during a November 9 game against Arizona. This might be worst - with the Saints' standout pass rusher sending a special gift to Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.
