Definitely a classic concussion. Textbook. He momentarily lost consciousness, and had severe motor impairment afterwards, followed by disorientation. If he started to get up and kind of just stumbled around a bit, I could see the argument that he might have just been dazed.

A helmet does not fully prevent a concussion. Concussions are usually caused by the brain kind of rocking in an awkward position and slamming against the skull from a loss of inertia rather than the physical trauma itself.
