No clue but think of it this way. They didn't know who they were sitting before hand. If he's under the weather he'd be sitting from te get go. Maybe the team getting him doesn't want the guy they get hurt in this game. Maybe there was a choice between AA and another hence the unknown who's sitting. Im a ***** for speculation so...yeah. Haha
Artie is a real trooper. Hope his not hurt and have concuission symptoms
