[Obligatory "every concussion is different" statement here] Usually the order of events is one week of symptom-free rest. Then one-to-two weeks of symptom-free light exercise. Then cleared to skate. On-ice workouts getting more and more intense each day. Then cleared for contact. Nash suffered the concussion on Oct 8. It's been 17 days and he hasn't been cleared for light exercise yet. That means at least 10 days of symptoms after the hit. This is his second concussion in less than a year. The training staff is going to go slow here. The longer it takes for him to become symptom-free, the longer the training staff will stretch out the second phase of recovery.
