Panthers | NFL doing concussion protocol investigation on CAR

Sun, 14 Jan 2018 07:24:56 -0800

The National Football League is currently investigating whether the Carolina Panthers properly followed concussion protocol with QB Cam Newton during the NFC Wild Card game against the New Orleans Saints Sunday, Jan. 7. Newton was poked in the eye and also suffered a knee injury after taking a hit to the head from DT David Onyemata. A league source said the injured knee was a contributing factor to Newton staggering to the ground and having difficulty maintaining his balance. He was taken to the team's blue medical tent on the sidelines for evaluation but was not sent to the locker room, as the league's new rules require.

Fantasy Tip: Although an MRI exam on Newton's knee came back positive, the injury was not considered serious and he would have been able to play this weekend if the Panthers had advanced in the playoffs. He should be considered a low-end QB1 heading into the 2018 season.

Fantasy Tip: Newton did it all for the Panthers, giving his team a chance to win against a spirited defense in a hostile environment with Devin Funchess, the No. 1 receiver, playing with his left arm hanging by his side. Newton even left the game briefly after a hard hit shook him up, forcing Derek Anderson into the game briefly. He finished the regular season with 3,302 passing yards, 22 touchdowns and six more scores on the ground.
