CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Now more than ever, Carolina Panthers players are being forced to confront the omnipresent dangers of repeated hits to the head amid a rash of concussions to key players.Middle linebacker Luke Kuechly was carted off the field with a head injury last Thursday night, a disturbing sight as the 2013 NFL Defensive Player of the Year stared blankly ahead as he wept uncontrollably while heading to the locker room. It was a scary moment some teammates -- as well players across the league -- likely wont soon forget.Left tackle Michael Oher still hasnt returned to practice nearly two months after sustaining a concussion. Even reigning league MVP Cam Newton, with his seemingly invincible 6-foot-5, 245-pound muscular physique, missed a game with a concussion and later talked about his concern over long-term effects.In all, seven Carolina players have found their way into the leagues concussion protocol since the start of the preseason.When you see it, it always comes across your mind that it could be you one day, Panthers defensive tackle Kawann Short said.Short acknowledged the violent nature of some hits is a scary to watch.Its like a car crash, Short said. You never know what the outcome may be. You hope for the best and pray that those guys come back.Kuechly did not practice Monday and Panthers coach Ron Rivera offered no update on his status, just reiterating he remains in the NFLs concussion protocol. He said there is no timetable for Kuechlys return.Still, the Panthers (4-6) must forge on and play six more games without their top defensive player beginning Sunday at Oakland.One of those trying to move on is safety Colin Jones.He missed Carolinas 23-20 win Thursday night over New Orleans with a concussion -- the second of his career.We are trained since we are young to fight through anything... but with a head injury its just a different situation because 70 percent isnt good enough, Jones said. Because if there are any side effects at all then you can just really hurt yourself down the road if you come back too quick.But Jones said when he does get back on the field it wont change the way he plays.Hes not alone.Cornerback Leonard Johnson said Monday he was taken the hospital after the Saints game when he had trouble breathing after taking a cleat to his sternum. He said you cant go into a game thinking about not getting hurt.I dont think it changes the way you play, it just brings more awareness to the game from a physicality standpoint, Johnson said of concussions. Once you roll the ball out there you forget all about the injuries and the possibility that (a concussion) can happen. When people focus more on those things they play timid and thats when injuries do happen.Kuechly missed 34 days and three games last season with a concussion.Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott said A.J. Klein, another player who missed Thursday nights game with a concussion, would start if Kuechly cant play. Klein returned to practice Monday, but he also remains in the concussion protocol. Third-string linebacker David Mayo would make his first NFL start if Kuechly and Klein cant start.McDermott said while he has plenty of confidence in Kleins ability, losing Kuechly would be difficult because hes the glue on defense that connects the defensive front end to the secondary.Lets face it, you are never going to be able to replace a player of Lukes caliber, McDermott said. I wouldnt expect anybody in this locker room to do that. You want those guys to do what they do, do what they did in college and up to this point, and we will be fine.Panthers safety Coleman said he believes Kuechly is in good hands with the teams medical staff.Ultimately, all I care about is Luke the person, not Luke the player, Coleman said. I want him to be as healthy as he can be, not just playing for us, but later in life.---AP NFL website: and Cheap Nike Epic React Flyknit Brown .

Each week, AFL draft expert Christopher Doerre - aka Knightmare - casts his eye over the countrys best junior footballers to give readers an early insight into the next generation of AFL stars.As well as attending live games, Doerre pores through match vision, analyses the stats and talks to industry sources to ensure he can offer the most insightful draft analysis.Aside from the weekly wrap, Doerre will also unveil his power rankings at the end of each month.And as we get closer to Novembers national draft, Doerre will also predict who goes where with his annual phantom draft.With the AFL Draft Combine now out, talent watchers from around the country will be looking through those names and familiarising themselves with those chosen to be tested.Similarly, in the lead-up to the National Under-18 Championships, draft watchers familiarised themselves with those team lists and there is good reason for this - the majority of players selected early in the draft come from state quads and those who test at the national combine.Despite this, last year Melbournes Clayton Oliver was picked fourth overall but did not make the Victoria Country squad to play at the under-18 championships.Collingwoods first selection Brayden Sier, who was selected with pick 32, was the first selected to not receive a national combine invite. He also was not selected for the Victoria Metro squad.So who could be a similar selection this year?Player focus Dan Allsop was not one of the 80 players invited to this years combine. He was not included in this years Victoria Country squad either. He is however one of the most talented small forwards in this years draft. At 175cm, Allsop is sixth in the TAC Cup goalkicking with 25 goals from 14 games. He is one of many strong contributors in Dandenongs balanced front half.What makes Allsop special, as he showed on Saturday against Sandringham, is how clean he is below the knees.Allsop is a genuine one touch player with a rare natural balance and coordination. He doesnt go to ground and keeps his feet when others dont. Consistently at the weekend, he was first to the ground ball and went to the right spots when the ball hit the deck. He showed some nice movement through traffic, evading would-be tacklers and shows class with ball in hand.Also important is Allsops forward pressure - he offers the second and third efforts and will work hard to keep the ball in the front half and force turnovers.AnalysisGiven these attributes, Allsop has genuine role player potential in the front half for an AFL team.From a draft context, he is a possible situational draft selection and would be suitable for selection by a club looking for a small forward.To this stage in his development, Allsop appears to be exclusively a small forward, which will hurt his draft ability so some extent with the focus recruiters have today on versatility.On Saturday, his disposal and finishing in front of goal while often good, was not to the level it needed to be. Field kicks and snaps from 40m are shots he should be finishing every time, but in windy conditions he failed to do.A lack of penetration by foot is also is something relatively lacking. He does not have a 50m kick and even at times seemed to struggle to make 40m with some of his snaps.Allsop against Sandringham finished the game with two goals and three behinds. Watching his activity and where he was when he won the ground balls, it could easily have been a six goal-game had he converted his chances while still getting a score assist.Allsop looks to be suitable for selection late in the draft or as a rookie.Victorian prospect watchTAC CupBen Ainsworth was prominent through the midfield for Gippsland with 20 disposals, 13 contested possessions, nine tackles, nine clearances, five inside 50s and one goal. His improving midfield play will only enhance his draft stocks and may see him feature inside the top five on draft day.Lachlan Tiziani has continued his hot form with 23 disposals, 11 contested possessions, six tackles, three clearances and three goals for Murray.Todd Marshall matched Tiziani with an equal team-high three goals to go along with 14 disposals, 10 contested possessions, four marks (one contested) and three score assists. Marshall is expected to be the first key forward selected this year and looms as a probable top-10 selection.Harry Morrison has had a positive month for Murray, continuing his good form with 18 disposals, 13 contested possessions, four clearances, seven inside 50s and three score assists. Morrison at 182cm has played most of his junior footy as a back flanker, with his penetrating but efficient kick, running ability and intercept marking all features of his game.Hugh McCluggage again continues to play good footy with 25 disposals, 14 contested possessions, five marks, eight tackles, seven
