Anyone know the concussion protocol for De'Vondre Campbell? When is the earliest he can be evaluated?

This is the 5 step process before he can return, not sure where he is in it though:

  1. Rest and recovery: Until a player returns to the "baseline level of signs and symptoms and neurological examination," only limited stretching and balance activities are recommended. Electronics, social media and team meetings are all to be avoided.
  2. Light aerobic exercise: The NFL recommends 10-20 minutes on a stationary bike or treadmill without resistance training or weight training. The cardiovascular activity is monitored by an athletic trainer to "determine if there are any recurrent concussion signs or symptoms."
  3. Continued aerobic exercise and introduction of strength training: Increased duration and intensity of aerobic exercise with strength training added. An athletic trainer will supervise to watch for recurrent concussions signs or symptoms.
  4. Football specific activities: The cognitive load of playing football will be added and players will participate in non-contact activities for the typical duration of a full practice.
  5. Full football activity/clearance: A player returns to full participation in practice, including contact without restriction.

Linebacker De’Vondre Campbell (concussion) was not at Tuesday’s practice. He will have to will have to meet the requirements of the NFL’s concussion protocol before he is allowed to return to full football activities. Campbell suffered the concussion against the 49ers and it’s rare for a player to be cleared for the next game in his circumstance.

The Falcons will release their first official injury report for the week on Wednesday.

Players almost always miss the next game after a concussion.

Yep, wouldn't expect him back for Carolina but instead for New Orleans.

Neal is going to have to step up against Olsen this week.  Carolina likes to run, so maybe having Worr back there in run support isn't the worst thing for this game.
