that was funny(doc), but honestly i would sit him a coupla weeks, b/c if he plays his normal pace and goes up and falls and hits his head, he can have multi-concussions like G. Wallace
That can happen to any player. The only reason it is unlikely is any player that isn't experiencing any dizziness, syncope, vertigo, or problems with equilibrium (in any form or fashion) will instinctively brace themselves to protect their head in ANY fall. Conditions that slow reflex or throw off balance predispose athletes to concussions BECAUSE they don't REACT fast enough.
Like you said, if he still looks dazed or isn't 100% by Friday, letting him go full bore would be reckless. But as long as he's got the cobwebs cleared, he's not any more likely to have a repeat-date with the hardwood Goddess than any other person in the entire ARENA.
People have gotten misinformation about concussions leading to fear of a concussive syndrome...that's not accurate. Any predisposition comes from PERMANENT damage to the dura (linings of the brain and cranium) that IF (and I stress IF) exposed to further trauma can have life-threatening consequences.
I don't know of any thing that can cause permanent, spontaneously recurring concussive symptoms WITHOUT permanent damage that most decent radiologists would pick up immediately.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
Trevor isn't in any danger.
My wife and I laugh at the talk about G Wallace and "recurrent concussions". They aren't linked (each fall cause the problem...not the problem causes the falls) and shouldn't be seen as a pattern or a "syndrome"...
