The NFL and NFL Players Association are again reviewing the handling of a player’s concussion during a primetime game this season.

Both parties will inquire as to why the game was not stopped when New England Patriots receiver DeVante Parker showed concussion symptoms during a 27-13 road win against the Arizona Cardinals on Monday Night Football, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The person requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation.

Parker caught a pass during the first quarter before he was tackled, causing his head to hit the field. He was slow to get up and needed the help of Patriots offensive lineman Cole Strange to regain his footing.

The Patriots nearly lined up for another play as receiver Nelson Agholor outwardly motioned to the sidelines for the game to stop, while Parker stood in a staggered stance to line up.
