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

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton went to the sideline after sustaining a vicious sack from New Orleans Saints defensive tackle David Onyemata in the fourth quarter of the teams' wild-card matchup. 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.

Panthers officials reiterated Monday that Newton was following instructions from the sideline to take a knee so backup quarterback Derek Anderson could loosen up. 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.

"I was actually talking more to the other Kalil brother", Jordan said after the game.

Newton echoed Rivera's assessment that he was poked in the eye.

"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.

Jordan said the hit that Newton absorbed was significant. "I appreciate him. So I'm gonna send him some sauce", Jordan said - an obvious reference to Newton's earlier comments. Newton later said he did NOT feel like he had a concussion, but suffered an eye injury from his helmet slipping down.

Asked if Newton had displayed any signs of a brain injury, coach Ron Rivera said, "I don't think so. So, I'm going to send him some sauce".

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.

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.
