Exactly. Which is amazing why everyone is freaking out.
The most I've seen is "concussion-like symptoms" and everything here seems to be precautionary.
Concussion-like symptoms doesn't necessarily mean concussion. It means he has a headache or something and they would rather be safe than sorry. I'm fine with him sitting a few games considering how valuable he is to the team. Some people need to chill on freaking out like his career is over.
I'd say it's the uncertainty that's freaking everyone out. Not knowing is a scary thing.
No control is what makes people feel helpless which leads to frustration and anger!
Many fans have been through this mess already with Big E. Sad story.
Life goes on. To be honest id rather these guys have a healthy life then a ****** one just because of a game. Its really nothing to freak out about. **** happens. There is no reason to worry about meaningless things you can't control.
Here is impact test short description. Does not sound all that special really. Almost every player can pass it unless you are seriously dazed. By any means I am no concussion specialist. imho
Yea I believe that they do it immediately when they think you are concussed. They take you to a "quiet room" and a doctor examines you after the hit. So if he passed it, it is at least some good news. Giroux probably started his testing when he left the bench at the end of the 2nd
I'm not too confident that this is a good situation. Homer always bull****s us when it comes to injuries.
"Pronger's out for a day with a virus....... jk surgery out 6 weeks."
"Schenn has a minor upper body injury, should be back soon.........jk concussion."
"Giroux feels fine, he'll be ok.....but he won't be playing or traveling with the team this week.
