Panthers claiming Cam Newton had knee injury, not concussion

Cam Newton clears Instagram account

Plus, this new report of a knee injury follows shortly after a separate report claiming that Newton's trouble getting off the field was because he was poked in the eye and not (again) because of a possible concussion.

According to Schefter, the quarterback underwent an MRI for the injured knee on Monday, which came back negative.

The NFL's December statement reads that it requires "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)". However, a source confirmed to ESPN that Newton would have been medically cleared to play this weekend had the Panthers advanced to the NFC divisional playoff round.

Panthers claiming Cam Newton had knee injury, not concussion

In December, the National Football League announced changes to its concussion protocol, including forcing players who stumble or fall to get evaluated in the locker room rather than the medical tent, except in cases of orthopedic injuries.

Newton said after the game his head was fine, but he was having problems with his eye after his helmet slid down following the hit by Saints defensive tackle David Onyemata.

Newton returned for the next offensive series after missing just one play and threw a 56-yard touchdown pass to rookie Christian McCaffery. Even worse, after the game head coach Ron Rivera gave us a song and dance about how Newton was actually following instructions. "But when he walked off and he told the trainers he got poked in the eye, then they did take him into the tent and checked him for a concussion, which he did not have", Hurney said. "I thought somebody stuck their finger in my eye, but I've got my visor, so that couldn't happen".
