you are underestimating how long it takes to get into game shape
i'm not sure what stage of recovery he's at now (he said on radio he's skating) but he'll have to go through heavy contact drills
i would think the leafs would give him at least a month of these to see if he's ready, to make sure the symptoms don't come back
you can't give him 1 or two real practices and be like 'ok no symptoms, throw him into the game'
i'm sure the leafs want to do things right so he's with us for a long time
i'm thinking in nov sometime would be reasonable for return, if there are no setbacks
