Week 4 injury roundup: Cam Newton enters concussion protocol
Sunday October 2nd, 2016

The banged up Redskins defense was dealt another blow Sunday when Ryan Kerrigan left the game with an elbow injury.

Washington lost two key members of the secondary last week—Bashaud Breeland and DeAngelo Hall. Linebacker Su’a Cravens also left this week’s game to be evaluated for a concussion.

Even more notably, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton headed to the locker room after a big hit. His status is unknown.

Elsewhere, Bears receiver Kevin White, who missed his entire rookie season last year with a leg injury, injured his ankle.
