Was Cam Newton Concussed During Panthers-Saints Playoff Game?

He's talking trash about Carolina players, retweeting Cam Newton memes and he even sent the Panthers quarterback a bottle of wine as a "thank you" for letting the Saints beat his team three times this season. The Seattle Seahawks were fined $100,000 by the NFL last month for their handling of a concussion evaluation of quarterback Russell Wilson after the league and players' union determined that the protocols had not been followed properly in that case.

Though Newton went to the ground on his way to the sideline, he said it was because of an eye injury and not a head injury, per NFL Network's Tiffany Blackmon: "I know it was a precautionary concussion protocol thing that happened, but it wasn't my head, it was my eye".

Newton was slow to get up after defensive tackle David Onyemata hit him with 8 minutes, 26 seconds remaining in the Panthers' 31-26 loss.

Newton walked toward the Panthers' sideline and appeared to stumble to the turf as trainers met him a few yards from the bench area.

Three hurt as fire at Trump Tower brought under control
While Trump and the First Family now live in the White House, he maintains a palatial apartment in the 58-story tower. Trump's primary residence was in the building before his election victory and inauguration almost a year ago.

He was taken to the sideline medical tent for evaluation for a concussion and cleared after missing only one play.

Newton finished the game as the Panthers lost, 31-26, at the Superdome and saw their season end.

A change in the National Football League concussion protocol enacted last month states: "A player who stumbles and/or falls to the ground when trying to stand, unrelated to an orthopedic injury, should be sent directly to the locker room to undergo the standard locker room exam". The league and players' union conducted probes past year after Newton took a hard hit to the head late in the season opener at Denver but did not come out of the game.

Medical personnel attended to him as he sat on the field, then took him to the medical tent on the sideline for evaluation.

Raiders to give Gruden longest contract in history
It is believed that he will bring in well regarded Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther to run his defense. Raiders reporter and author Steve Corkran first reported on the Raiders' plan for a "splashy" Tuesday news conference.

But that price is a pittance for a multi-billion-dollar franchise, so the question of whether the punishment for clubs found to be guilty of not following the rules could become an offseason topic of debate.

Rivera did not believe Newton had not demonstrated any post-concussion symptoms Monday.

This is not the first time the Panthers' handling of Newton has come under scrutiny.

'NFL concussion protocol should have dictated taking out Cam Newton and examining him immediately after direct hit to his head, ' Pat Leonard wrote. He was surprised to see Newton return to the game, he said. We saw him rock back and forth.
