Roenick return to Philly on hold
2/26/2004
Jeremy Roenick's roller-coaster road to recovery took a bit of a dip on Wednesday.

Roenick was set to return to Philadelphia until results of a second MRI revealed he may have suffered an injury to the circulatory system in his brain.

"They said there are a couple of areas that are of concern to them and they told me they did not want me to travel," Roenick told the Philadelphia Daily News.

"There is damage in there in a couple of areas and they want to know what kind of damage it is. I heard the word aneurysm and I was pretty disheartened.

"I've had better days. It's not good."

Roenick was expected to visit noted concussion specialist Dr. Karen Johnson in Montreal Thursday. Instead, he will undergo a procedure in Phoenix which will see doctors inject dye into his bloodstream to allow the circulatory system in his brain to be scanned.

Roenick suffered a fractured jaw and concussion back on February 12. At one point, he talked about retirement but was showing signs of improvement.
