NFL, NFLPA to review how Panthers handled hit on QB Newton

The Panthers are heading to New Orleans to face the Saints in the wild-card round of the National Football League playoffs.

Coach Ron Rivera and general manager Mary Hurney said the Panthers followed the proper procedure, saying Newton had an eye injury and was not concussed. They will not comment further until those conversations are completed.

If the concussion protocol was not properly followed the team is subject to discipline, including a $150,000 fine. Medical personnel looked at him as a he took a seat, and Newton missed one play as Derek Anderson relieved him.

After taking a hard fourth-quarter sack Sunday, Newton was helped to his feet but dropped to turf before reaching the sideline.

But just four recycling companies in the United Kingdom can separate the plastic film lining the inside of the paper cup. MPs on the Environment Audit Committee say the charge would encourage consumers to bring their own reusable cups.

The team then announced that Newton had sustained an "eye injury", which was relayed by the Fox broadcast.

The 28-year-old was assessed at pitchside - and the Panthers said on their Twitter account he was "evaluated for a concussion and cleared".

Newton was slow to get up and collapsed on his way back to the sideline.

Rivera told reporters Monday that he didn't think Newton had demonstrated any post-concussion symptoms. At the same time, there was also another more egregious incident on December 29 concerning Tom Savage after he showed obvious concussion-like symptoms, but the league did not charge the Texans for any violations.
