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

A woozy-looking Newton was able to stand up and attempted to run off the field.

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 exited Carolina's wild-card loss to the New Orleans Saints after taking a hit to the head in the fourth quarter.

League officials have already been in contact with the Panthers' medical staff as to why Newton was not taken to the locker room when he was being evaluated for a concussion. He was taken to the medical tent for a concussion evaluation and replaced by backup Derek Anderson, but was cleared to return to the game. He led a touchdown march that got Carolina within one score, but their next and final possession ended with a turnover on downs.

The Panthers were investigated once before in the 2016 season opener at Denver when Newton took a blow to the head but remained in the game.

Newton dropped to the floor as he left the pitch for treatment, and the league wants assurances that concussion protocols were followed correctly.

Newton was evaluated in the medical tent on the Panthers' sideline.

But the inquest into how the Panthers handled what looked like a head injury to Cam Newton is just beginning.

Panthers Coach Ron Rivera and Newton said after the game that the issue was that the player had been hit in the eye. Given that stance, it's not clear how the Panthers' statements that they told Newton to take a knee, to give Anderson time to warm up, will be viewed. Although Newton had eight carries for 37 yards, he threw the ball 40 times, and the Saints feel better about him throwing than running.

Rivera told reporters Monday that he didn't think Newton had demonstrated any post-concussion symptoms.

Goodell and other NFL officials have said the league's concussion-related rules are created to put return-to-play decisions in the hands of doctors and medical personnel, without any consideration given to competitive concerns.

"Yeah, you know, Carolina picked him up so the brothers could reunite", Jordan said. We saw him rock back and forth. "I appreciate him. So I'm gonna send him some sauce", Jordan said - an obvious reference to Newton's earlier comments.
