Two sacks on Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton during last week’s game against the Los Angeles Rams drew questions on social media, and one was submitted to the league for review by head coach Ron Rivera.
But the hits in question, one a sack for an 8-yard loss by Aaron Donald and the other a sack for a 10-yard loss by Mark Barron, drew no penalty or fines from the NFL, a league source confirmed Friday.
Last month, a low hit on Newton by Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Calais Campbell went uncalled by officials but drew a fine of $18,231.
ESPN’s Ed Werder reported this week that NFL officials saw no penalty in either Donald’s or Barron’s hits.

Los Angeles’ William Hayes received a $18,231 fine on a horse-collar penalty against Carolina running back Jonathan Stewart, the source confirmed.
