A knee and a concussion are completely different injuries. You have to be extra cautious with concussions, and I'd like to reiterate what I said earlier that players lie. Its up to the coaching staff to be cautious and 3 days is not being cautious in my opinion.
So...When is a good return date for anyone in pro sports who's suffered a concussion?
And as for players who lie.....Should the coaching staff treat them like perps on NYPD Blue?
Not trying to be a smart ass, but I'd like to think that the trainers, and MD's whom are part of the Red Wings medical staff know a few things more than you, or I in regards to concussions.
As someone who has had concussions, I think 3 days symptom free is enough.
Had a few concussions myself when I was a wee lad...Maybe there's a reason why I was in 'Special Ed' for several years.
