GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The NFL will not fine the Green Bay Packers or left tackle David Bakhtiari, after he broke the league's concussion protocol last Sunday in the playoffs.  

Bahktiari was checked out for a concussion suffered in a touchdown drive in the fourth quarter -- and instead of going to the locker room to be examined, he returned to the field to block on an extra point.

Two league doctors found, "no fault" in how the Packers' medical staff conducted itself.  

The Packers have not commented.  

Green Bay ended its season last Sunday, after losing to San Francisco at home in the Wild Card round.
