Pronger Suffering With Concussion-Like Symptoms And Schenn Has A Concussion

via the Philadelphia Flyers,

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren made a statement concerning the injury status of defenseman Chris Pronger:

While Chris’ knee is improving, he has struggled with other issues that are concussion-like symptoms. Chris will see Dr. Joe Maroon and Dr. Mickey Collins on Wednesday, December 14th in Pittsburgh for further evaluation. Chris will be out indefinetly.

Holmgren also addressed the status of rookie forward Brayden Schenn, who has missed the last two games due to an upper-body injury.

Brayden reported “not feeling himself” on December 5th. Our doctors believe he has a mild concussion. Brayden will be out indefinitely.

Looks like Pronger got a taste of his own physics.
