The only question mark in my mind is the fighting aspect and insurance. Will he be required to go full cage on return?

In any case I wish him a speedy recovery
Even though the rules allow for players to wear a full cage when returning from injury I doubt they'd let Fraser play for an extended period of time wearing one. As for fighting, I have a hard time believing ANY doctor would give Fraser the go ahead to drop the mitts again. It's a shame because it's a great part of his game and he's always the first to defend his teammates, but when you're talking brain injuries there's such a thin line anyone would be willing to cross.

I hope the guys okay, both in his private and professional life. I can't get the CT Scan image out of my head.
