Cam Newton Famous CTE Expert Calls BS ... That's a Concussion

Cameron Jordan mocks Cam Newton, Matt Kalil after victory

The NFL and NFL Players Association plan to conduct a joint review to determine if the Carolina Panthers followed the correct concussion protocol with quarterback Cam Newton in their 31-26 playoff loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

The NFL's new concussion protocol, implemented on December 11, included the notice that the league will 'require a locker room concussion evaluation for all players demonstrating gross or sustained vertical instability (e.g., stumbling or falling to the ground when trying to stand)'.

"We are in contact now with the Panthers' medical staff and we will not comment further until those conversations are completed", the National Football League said in a written statement issued through a spokesman.

Newton left for one play after Saints defensive tackle David Onyemata's chest struck Newton's head with about nine minutes left.

ESPN at it again: Trump's 'af***ing stupid person'
ESPN declined to comment to Sporting News about Nolan, but is known to handle controversial situations on a case-by-case basis. Nolan said that Trump was a "fucking stupid person" on Viceland's "Desus & Mero" talk show on Wednesday.

Jordan, always quick with a joke, especially after a win, has taken pokes at Newton's sense of style, and the Panthers quarterback responded in kind in November by saying he'd send Jordan some "sauce". The league and players' union conducted probes previous 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.

Newton echoed Rivera's assessment that he was poked in the eye. Although Newton had eight carries for 37 yards, he threw the ball 40 times, and the Saints feel better about him throwing than running.

'My helmet had came down low enough over my eyelid and it got pressed by the player's stomach I believe. "So they'll get a chance to look at him".

However, the question could become whether or not Newton should have been taken to the locker room for evaluations.

"Bomb cyclone" to slam East Coast with more bitterly cold weather
It will be most intense over the open ocean near New England, but when it's gone the cold air behind it will flood south. East Coast, brace yourself for what is about to come: a nor'easter that forecasters are calling a " bomb cyclone ".

The Panthers' handling Sunday of Newton's injury drew criticism by Chris Nowinski, the founding CEO of the Concussion Legacy Foundation.

Later in the year, Newton said, "I didn't know he was a fan of my dress code. But again, I'm not the doctor", Rivera said.

It was later determined the Panthers handled that situation correctly and no fines were handed out.

The Seattle Seahawks also were cited for mishandling a hit to their quarterback, Russell Wilson, earlier in the season.
