Panthers middle linebacker returned to the field Sunday, after missing a week while in the concussion protocol. Whether he actually had a concussion is still unclear. After a report that he did not suffer a concussion two weeks ago against the Eagles, the Panthers immediately came out with a statement saying he was in the concussion protocol. Asked to clear up the confusion after Sunday’s win over the Buccaneers, Kuechly refused, saying several times “I’m not going to get into it.” Kuechly has always been hesitant to discuss the topic, dating back to his first in the NFL in 2015. And whether he had one or not, they treated him as if he did.
