Battle may not play Friday?

Or is this yet another case of Ed being overly conservative on his injury prognosis of a player?

[i]Doctors and migraine specialists have tried to evaluate Oliver’s condition, and DeChellis said they believe Oliver’s headaches occur during physical activity.

“When he’s reading, or on the computer or walking around campus there’s not really a problem,” DeChellis said. “But it’s activity induced, so when he starts running around and jumping he gets a migrane.”[/i]

Well that’s just great, isn’t it.

Talor should play, he’s sick I dont think it’s anything more than that. Not a lot of people noticed because students weren’t in town but last year when we played NW half the team was sick and kept leaving to go to the locker room and get better, then come back. AT the very least he doesn’t play very much, but I dont think we’ll need him that much to win. If we do, we’ve got bigger issues. In a way it’ll be a good chance to force Frazier to grow in his role right off the bat, the sooner he gets ride of his freshman traits, the better.

That is one of the concussion protocols that we have followed. Typically it is the last hurdle prior to resuming participation. Athletes returning from concussions are required to perform an exertion test. Following the test if the athlete is still symptom free he is then cleared.

If he is still having symptoms following/during exertion I am really surprised he was allowed to play last week.

The way I read it he was fine playing pick ball all summer and the headaches just started in the fall. I would assume they have been monitoring this thing all summer.
