Cam Newton injured his knee in playoff loss to Saints

However, Newton was only taken to the team's blue medical tent, not the locker room as new National Football League rules mandate.

According to an ESPN report, Newton also suffered a knee injury during the wild-card loss, possibly explaining why he stumbled off the field after a hard hit by Saints defensive tackle David Onyemata.

The new league policy that went into effect in late December mandates that players head to the locker room for more extensive testing when exhibiting symptoms related to a concussed state. The NFL's enhanced concussion protocol requires players demonstrating vertical instability after a hit to the head to be taken to the locker room to be evaluated.

Earlier this year, the Seattle Seahawks were fined $100,000 after quarterback Russell Wilson was not properly tested.

Newton echoed coach Ron Rivera's assessment that Newton was poked in the eye.

Saints G Andrus Peat, who will be placed on IR, got some relatively good news from his MRI: He has a broken fibula and a high-ankle sprain, source said. "He took a knee because they told him to take a knee so we could get the official timeout and Derek could warm up". "So that's what that was".

Speaking about his former pupil on CBS Radio in Houston (per 247 Sports) Malzahn, who was the offensive coordinator at Auburn when Newton attended school there, he said, "He's one of the biggest, strongest guys and he takes hits other quarterbacks don't".

Newton offered the same injury diagnosis as his coach at the time.
