Cam Newton Status Update: Panthers QB not in concussion protocol

New, comments

Somehow, Newton doesn’t have a concussion following Thursday’s slugfest in Denver.

Panthers fans can now breathe a sigh of relief as the best possible news was just released: Cam Newton doesn’t have a concussion, according to team officials.

I really don’t know how he made it through that game unscathed, but it really shows how tough (and lucky) he is to avoid the concussion protocol that would likely have kept him off the field for the home opener next week.

That doesn’t take away from the fact that Newton was royally screwed over last night by the league and its officials for not policing the multiple hits to his head, but for now he’s okay, and that’s all the really matters.
