Cam Newton reportedly suffered knee injury in loss to Saints

Cam Newton reportedly suffered knee injury in loss to Saints

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.

While it's good that the knee issue sounds minor, it's just one more item to add to the long list of injuries Newton has suffered as the Panthers quarterback.

Newton was taken to the team's blue medical tent but not the locker room, which is a violation of the new National Football League rules.

The were fined $100,000, and the team's coaching and medical staffs were required to attend medical training regarding the concussion protocol, after a joint review determined the club did not properly evaluate quarterback following a hard tackle during a November 9 game against Arizona.

However, the NFL's new rule - which was implemented nine days prior - states: "A player who exhibits gross motor instability or significant loss of balance must be taken to the locker room for evaluation if it is not diagnosed as an orthopedic injury".

According to the NFL's revised concussion protocol, Cam Newton should have been examined in the locker room after falling to the ground as he was walking to the sideline. So it's also not very surprising to hear he's not happy about all the big hits Newton takes.

"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.

The Panthers said Newton was poked in the eye and was evaluated for a concussion in the team's blue medical tent on the sideline. "He took a knee because they told him to take a knee so we could get the official timeout and Derek could warm up".
