NFL to follow up with Ravens on Schaub concussion protocol

While the Ravens said they followed proper protocol after Matt Schaub's helmet slammed hard into the ground Sunday, an ESPN report said the NFL was prepared to take a closer look.

The league will review how Schaub was handled in the second quarter of Sunday’s game in Miami, according to an espn.com report.

“We will follow up as per our normal procedures,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told ESPN.com. “We review all protocols after games.”

Schaub clutched his helmet after taking the hit that caused him discomfort, and an official helped Schaub rise to his feet. The Ravens called a timeout with 2:29 left in the half, and Schaub remained in the game.

After the game, when asked about the incident by CSN Mid-Atlantic, Harbaugh said Schaub was checked for a concussion by the team’s medical staff and passed their evaluations.

“Our trainer went out right away,” Harbaugh said. “He said he was fine, he was good, he was clear, whatever the test is they gave him. Then we put him through the concussion protocol anyway. He (Schaub) was just screaming he was fine. But our doctors grabbed him, put him through the protocol. He passed.”

After the game, Schaub said at his press conference, “I was fine. “Doctors looked at me, came over and did their necessary tests and everything. Everything checked out fine.”

However, the NFL is under more scrutiny than ever regarding how hits to the head are handled. Two weeks ago, the NFL investigated how quarterback Case Keenum has handled after he hit is head hard on the turf late in the game, and remained in the game. Keenum remained in the game, he was diagnosed with a concussion afterward, but the Rams were not disciplined.

What happened with Schaub on Sunday may be the latest incident to go under the microscope.
