by: Steve Crump, WBTV

It was a dramatic moment as time seemed to stand still on the Carolina Panthers’ home field. Fans were shocked and worried that star linebacker Luke Kuechly suffered another possible concussion during the second quarter of a tough loss against the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday night.

Head coach Ron Rivera recalls the moment, while addressing reporters at the Bank of America Stadium. “I was engrossed in what was happening out there and the only time I really realized it, was when they told me they were going to take him in and that was it.” Dr. Luke Donovan, who teaches in the athletic training department at UNC Charlotte, did not talk specifically about Luke Kuechley. He explained how the testing works in the area of concussion protocol.
