Mike Green Will Miss “A Couple Of Weeks”

from Lindsay Applebaum of Capitals Insider,

He left Friday’s game after playing just 2:25 against the Rangers following a check by Derek Stepan.

“We’re probably going to hold him out a couple of weeks,” McPhee said in a news conference. “We’ve been really careful when players have head injuries. We did the right thing with Mike and he probably could have come back earlier than he did and he felt great. Unfortunately, his second shift of the game [against the Rangers] he got drilled and got hurt. We’ll be really careful we’ll hold him out longer this time—at least a couple of weeks, maybe longer.”

Green is in Calgary with his family following the death of his grandmother.

Asked if Green suffered a concussion or another injury against the Rangers, McPhee said: “Yeah, he’s had some headaches. So we’ve just got to be careful. He’s back home now for a funeral and we’ll know more when he comes back.”

I did miss it, that looked like the definition of a blindside hit to the head… You could tell he was salty about takin’ that crosscheck to his ribs into the boards from Green a couple seconds before that.
