Panthers will apparently claim a knee injury caused Cam Newton to stumble

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton took a hit to the head late in Sunday’s loss to the Saints, stumbled on the field, went down on one knee, and then was evaluated for a concussion on the sideline. That was a violation of the concussion policy the league had distributed just nine days earlier, which said any player who stumbles on the field had to get a concussion check in the locker room, not on the sideline.

So why wasn’t Newton taken to the locker room? The Panthers will apparently claim it’s because Newton suffered a knee injury, and that caused his stumbling. Adam Schefter of ESPN, citing an unnamed source, writes that “the bothersome knee injury was a contributing factor as to why Newton staggered to the ground and struggled to stay balanced once he took a knee after a hard hit to the head.”

When Drew retires he plans on maybe a political career. When Cam retires he will continue his acting career.

Well if memory serves I don't think the knees grow out of the shoulders or the panther's trainers need to retake the anatomy exam.
