NFL Indicates Cam Newton's Usage Of Under Armour Facemask Clips Is Rule Violation
Published September 25, 2013
NO DISCIPLINARY ACTION YET: In Charlotte, Jonathan Jones notes, "There was no indication if Newton or other players would face fines, which are normally announced on Fridays." A source said that the Panthers' equipment staff uses the UA clips "because they're easier to manage." Photographs from the Giants-Panthers game Sunday "show no fewer than three other Panthers" -- RB DeAngelo Williams, DE Greg Hardy and DE Charles Johnson -- wearing the black UA clip (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 9/25).
