METAIRIE, La. - Cameron Jordan made good on his promise to send a bottle of wine to longtime rival Cam Newton as a mocking thank-you gesture after the New Orleans Saints completed a three-game sweep of the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. The Seattle Seahawks were fined $100,000 by the NFL last month for their handling of a concussion evaluation of quarterback Russell Wilson after the league and players' union determined that the protocols had not been followed properly in that case.
The NFL said it was in contact with the Panthers medical staff.
Newton left for one play after Saints defensive tackle David Onyemata's chest struck Newton's head with about nine minutes left. He was replaced by Derek Anderson, and, as he moved toward the sideline, Newton went to the ground and appeared to be pointing toward his right eye.
Newton returned on the next series and threw a 56-yard touchdown pass to rookie running back Christian McCaffrey on the third play of the possession. Rivera said during his postgame news conference that Newton was told to sit down near the sideline to give Anderson an opportunity to warm up before going into the game. "And it was really getting poked in the eye".
"My helmet had come down low enough over my eyelid and it got pressed by the player's stomach".
The changes came in conjunction with a decision not to punish the Houston Texans for their handling of a concussion suffered by quarterback Tom Savage.

Reports said that search and rescue operation had been launched on Friday evening but fog and darkness are hampering the process. The survivor was identified as Ghulam Nabi Bhat, son of Ali Mohammed Bhat, a resident of Kalmona, Kralpora, Kupwara.
Jordan said the hit that Newton absorbed was significant.
Rivera did not believe Newton had not demonstrated any post-concussion symptoms Monday.
According to the National Football League, this required the player to be removed from the field for examination in a locker room.
The Panthers were investigated once before in the 2016 season opener at Denver when Newton took a blow to the head but remained in the game. But again, I'm not the doctor.
It was later determined the Panthers handled that situation correctly and no fines were handed out.
