IMO, Cooper didn't do himself any favors with how he tweeted out the coverage, but he didn't have an update from the team as the team was off Sunday and the pictures from Josi and Stalberg appeared over the weekend from Whole Foods probably sparking many questions about Josi's status from his followers.

Once Josi's injury was labeled a concussion, he was automatically ineligible to return to play for one week. After that the team will monitor his status and once he is symptom free and passes baseline testing they will start to work him back on a gradual basis looking for any symptoms to reoccur. If they do, then Josi has to start from the beginning of the process again and work his way back.

It's a trying process for fans, the team, and especially the player who wants to be out there competing with his teammates, but it cannot be rushed. There is no timeline and no way to speed up recovery from a concussion and everyone and every concussion is different.

Josi is out indefinitely. There is no other way to look at it until he is cleared.
