Panthers QB Clausen may have concussion from final play as Panthers protest Talib hit with NFL



Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib could come under scrutiny by the NFL again this week.

Carolina Panthers coach John Fox said quarterback Jimmy Clausen sustained a concussion on their final offensive play when Talib launched himself into the pile near the goal line during a quarterback sneak.

Clausen's status for next week's game is uncertain and Fox said he will send a tape of that play to the NFL offices this week.

Receiver Steve Smith shoved Talib after the play and was penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct.
