ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – The NFL for the first time has given spotters the power to stop play to remove players from the field, who may have a concussion.
A play Sunday’s brutal Rams loss to the Ravens has caused some serious questions to be raised about the NFL’s concussion policy. With just over a minute to play Rams quarterback Case Keenum’s head gets slammed to the ground. Keenum, who is clearly hurt, struggles to get up. He never came out of the game and two plays later fumbled to set up the Ravens game winning field goal
After the game the broadcasters on the FOX post-game show questioned what happened.
A reporter with the NFL Network says the league is looking into the situation. They are investigating why he wasn’t tested for a concussion.
The league will look into the situation surrounding #Rams QB Case Keenum, his concussion, and why wasn't tested for a concussion, I'm told.
