Simon Gagne on Monday updated his condition in the following Q and A.
Q: What did you do today?
SG: “Today I ran for three miles on the treadmill. I still have some more things to do today to see how I am going to react. Physically I feel pretty good but the symptoms are still around a little bit. That’s still a problem.”
Q: You said you felt good when you were on the ice yesterday. Is it affecting you during the day?
SG: “It’s more in the morning when I wake up. Yesterday when I woke up it was pretty much the same thing. I went out there and skated. I didn’t push hard like I would in practice. I shot the puck and I felt pretty good on how I was handling the puck and skating. It was pretty good.”
Q: Is there progress in your recovery or is it flat-lined?
SG: “It’s kind of flat-line right now. Maybe yesterday was a little improvement. After the skate, it was pretty much the first day that was very close to having no symptoms. But still this morning, this wasn’t the case.”
Q: What are your symptoms?
SG: “More pressure in the head. I don’t want to call it a headache but it’s kind of pressure close to a headache.”
It's looking like January to me. His interviews get more and more depressing by the day. He was concussed, came back too soon, and was concussed again. I'm sure that isn't what the Flyers will admit but I think we all know that's what happened. Getting your bell rung that badly in quick succession means there could (and probably should) be some serious down time.
