Here is the injury update from the 5PM press conference.

Heatley: Mild Concussion, Left broken mandible(jaw), Left Shoulder(too soon to evaluate), Right Knee(too soon to evaluate), Bruised Lung, possibly Bruised Kkidney.

Snyder: In a grade 6 Coma(3 being the most severe, 15 being the least severe). A signifigant brain injury with the damage coming on the right side of the skull. He underwent an operation to release pressure on his brain. They will have to wait 2-3 days for anything more than this.

Dan Snyder has been fighting the odds his whole life, and now he is fighting them again.

According to this, he has a 1 in 3 chance of a full recovery or just moderate disability. The best the doctor operating on Snyder could say is "he has seen people wake up" from this grade coma and that "his brain looked pretty good."
