from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
Marc Staal has been given approval to begin light physical activity following his examination by concussion specialist Dr. Robert Cantu in Boston on Tuesday, an individual familiar with the case told The Post.
It remains unclear whether the Rangers’ alternate captain, who had been shut down completely for a month following a previous visit to Dr. Cantu during the week of Oct. 16, will be able to play this season.
The Rangers refused to confirm or deny the report. Moreover, The Post was told that the club will not be issuing updates on the status of Staal’s health during the recovery process from the concussion he initially sustained on a check delivered by his brother, Eric, in Carolina on Feb. 22 of last season….
Before visiting Dr. Cantu last month, Staal had undergone repeated acupuncture treatments and had taken a cortisone injection in the neck in attempts to accelerate his recovery.
While the approval to begin light activity implies that Staal was symptom-free while sedentary, there is obviously no guarantee he will remain so as he exercises.
