The NFL and NFL Players Association cleared the Carolina Panthers of wrongdoing in their handling of an injury suffered by quarterback Cam Newton during a playoff game earlier this month.
The NFL said in a written statement that its review with the NFLPA "established that there was no protocol violation". It added that Newton was properly evaluated for a concussion in the sideline medical tent and did not sustain a concussion.
"Our review of all of the facts do not support a claim of inappropriate medical care". Mr. Newton was immediately evaluated for a concussion and cleared by the team physician and unaffiliated neurotrauma consultant.
The NFL has ruled that the Carolina Panthers did not violate the concussion protocol when Cam Newton re-entered a game just a few minutes after sustaining what looked like a jarring hit.

If successful, his red sports auto will end up in a long, oval loop around the sun, traveling as far out as the orbit of Mars. A French space reporter just yelled "It's like the 4th of July!" All three boosters - 27 engines in all - were tested.
Coach Rivera told the parties conducting this review that he instructed the quarterback coach to tell Mr. Newton to take a knee if he required medical treatment. But David Onyemata came in to finish the job and took Newton down with a violent hit to the head that Newton didn't see coming. Evaluation for a concussion requires not only an analysis of the broadcast video but an examination performed by a medical team familiar with the player and the relevant medical history.
Among those changes was the mandate that any player who exhibited symptoms like Newton's would have to be taken to the locker room for evaluation. A sideline evaluation is not sufficient under those circumstances. The protocols have evolved and improved several times since their inception as a result of these rigorous reviews, and we are confident that they will continue to evolve as we aspire to set even higher standards for player health and safety.
In a statement, the National Football League said that the Panthers went through the necessary medical evaluations before returning Newton to the field, and that he was not showing symptoms of a concussion. Instead, he hurt his eye, and his knee, and he did not display "gross motor instability", and the Panthers followed the league's concussion protocol to a T.
According to the National Football League, an MRI of the knee the day after the game showed ligament and cartilage damage and very extensive swelling.
Newton is not expected to need surgery to fix his injured knee and the National Football League stated the Panthers' medical staff "acted with an abundance of caution".
"We have nothing to hide", Sills told Schefter.
"And also, the coaches stayed out of the decision, they simply handed him over to the medical staff". The NFL concluded that Carolina's medical team "acted with an abundance of caution". "I think this shows how irresponsible people can be in offering an opinion without the facts".
