NFL responds to critics about Cam Newton’s head shots

Cam Newton is a freak athlete, do you agree with his statements though?

Cam Newton should have been checked better

Last night the Broncos seemed to be head hunting for Cam Newton. He was hit numerous times and was not receiving any calls.  Many were worried about one hit particularly when he was rocked by Darrian Stewart and it dazed him. Many wanted to know why Cam Newton was not taken out of the game to be checked by medical staff.  Well the NFL has responded to the play.

“There was communication between medical personnel on the Carolina sideline, including the unaffiliated neurotrauma consultant, and the two independent certified athletic trainer spotters in the booth,” the league said in a statement. “During stoppage in play while on-field officials were in the process of administrating penalties, the unaffiliated neurotrauma consultant and team physician requested video from the spotters and reviewed the play. They concluded there were no indications of a concussion that would require further evaluation and the removal of the player from the game.”

What do you think? Was the NFL right about the call to let Cam play?
