Case Keenum's Concussion Will Change NFL Injury Protocol - Jay Glazer


NFL referees are criticized fairly often, most of the time by the team or fans of the team on the wrong side of a call. Even in a bad call, you can't forget that officiating an NFL game is one of the hardest jobs in the world as the action happens so fast. Though it slows down games, replays have lessened the burden on refs a great deal in recent years. However, reviewing a catch only seemed to make on official's job more difficult during the Week 12 matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Indianapolis Colts.

After a passing play, the ruling on the field was that the Colts had thrown an incomplete pass. They challenged the ruling and the refs went into the booth to look at it. That's when things got tricky as the referee came out to make his ruling and just left everyone confused:
