The NFL has asked the Carolina Panthers to explain their handling of quarterback Cam Newton, who was cleared to return after taking a bang on the head during Sunday's wildcard play-off loss to the New Orleans Saints.

Newton took a hard hit in the fourth quarter in which he claimed his helmet came down over his eyes and hurt his right eye.
