Report: NFL will not discipline Rams for Case Keenum incident

Sunday November 29th, 2015

The NFL will not discipline the St. Louis Rams for their handling of quarterback Case Keenum’s concussion, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Keenum continued to play in a Week 11 game against the Ravens despite sustaining a concussion late in the fourth quarter. Neither the independent doctors meant to spot players with possible concussions nor the Rams pulled Keenum from the game to put the quarterback through the concussion protocol.

After stumbling around on the ground after a hard hit, Keenum remained in the game. He fumbled later on the drive, setting up a game-winning field goal from the Ravens.

BURKE: Jeff Fisher’s handling of Case Keenum simply not good enough

The Rams will start Nick Foles in place of Keenum in Week 12. The NFLPA is also investigating the incident.
