What is with Weiss? Was he hoping to not have surgery but realized he needed it or was it an injury that occurred when he was put on IR?
He hurt his groin in camp, came back but wasn't really right, re-aggravated it, came back, then had the sports hernia that required surgery. They must be better at fixing them now than they used to be, IIRC GIlchrist was out a hell of a lot longer than that with one.
I'm a bit surprised he's coming back after only 3 days symptom free. I would think they'd keep him out a bit longer, 3 days is really nothing. My experiences with concussions are that during the recovery phase, one tough poop and your symptoms can come back.
Yeah, but he's been practicing. Hopefully he comes back excited to play and scores a bunch.
