National Football League to look into Panthers' handling of injury to Cam Newton

The NFL and NFL Players Association are conducting a joint review into how the Carolina Panthers handled the concussion protocol as it related to a fourth-quarter hit on quarterback Cam Newton in Sunday's NFC playoff loss at New Orleans.
The NFL has issued out a few hefty fines to teams for violations of the concussion protocol as the Seattle Seahawks were fined $100,000 for failing to test quarterback Russell Wilson in Week 10.
The team soon indicated he'd been cleared of a concussion.
Two weeks after the National Football League had revised its concussion protocol, it was apparently broken on the big stage.
Newton took a shot to the head from Saints defensive tackle David Onyemata midway through the fourth quarter.
Newton and coach Ron Rivera both said after the game, which the Panthers lost 31-26, that the player was checked over after he was hit in the eye, not because of a concussion.
The NFL said it was in contact with the Panthers medical staff.
According to Fox Sports' Chris Myers on the broadcast, Newton's visor poked him in the eye, a unusual explanation following a crushing blow. He was replaced the next play, but as he made his way off the sideline he stubbled and needed help to get back up off the field.
