  • Cam Newton crumples trying to leave field in scary scene

During the fourth quarter of the Carolina Panthers' 31-26 wild-card playoff loss to the New Orleans Saints, quarterback Cam Newton took a vicious shot from Saints defensive tackle David Onyemata.

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)'.

Now, the National Football League have asked the Panthers to explain their handling of Newton's injury - adding that it has gotten in touch with the team's medical staff.

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".

Jordan, a first-team All-Pro in 2017, finished Sunday's game with three tackles, one for loss, one sack and two passes defensed. He was seen on the sidelines with ice on his eye and claimed a visor poked him in the eye, which is why he went down.

Jordan said the hit that Newton absorbed was significant. "So they'll get a chance to look at him".

Asked if Newton had displayed any signs of a brain injury, coach Ron Rivera said, "I don't think so".

Sadio Mane has cleared the air on a reported rift with Liverpool teammate, Mohamed Salah. Salah, was also voted the 2017 BBC African Footballer of the Year in December.

"Based on what the young man (Newton) said to me, that is what I believe happened", Rivera said.

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.

"I'm not here to make that type of judgment", Jordan said in the Saints' postgame locker room.

"You beat the Carolina Panthers three times in a year, I'm gonna have to send this guy a wine bottle", Jordan said of Newton, pointing to a bottle of wine in his locker.

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

It comes after the Seattle Seahawks were fined $100,000 for failing to test quarterback Russell Wilson in Week 10.
