This is a excerpt from the NFL's policy concerning concussion protocols . 

 

"The thing that I think is important here is you don't manage concussions by a calendar," Dr. Herring said. "Some guys may come back in a week. Some guys may come back in six weeks. These steps don't have an expiration date on them. The player's history of injury and other issues come into play."

Once a team doctor signs off on a player's return, the player is evaluated in person by an unaffiliated concussion expert physician approved by both the NFL and NFL Players Association. This unaffiliated expert also must sign off on the player's health before he is allowed to return to play.

"The thinking is that we have done our best work, but an automatic second opinion is built in," Herring said. "We've never had a disagreement, but I would welcome it if we did because we could learn from it. This is a trust issue. We need assurances there is no rush to return to play for any reason."

IMO while its possible Landry might return sat I believe doctors & the team will sit him .

A 2010 study of high school athletes with concussions [3] reported that:

  • 27.0% had symptoms clear in less than 24 hours
  • 36.2% between 1 and 3 days,
  • 20.2% between 4 and 6 days,
  • 15.1% had symptoms lasting more than a week but less than a month; and
  • Only (1.5%) were still experiencing symptoms more than a month after injury. 
Experts nevertheless caution that, while an estimated 80 to 90% of concussions heal spontaneously in the first 7 to 10 days, children and adolescents may require a longer rest period and/or extended period of non-contact exercise than adults because their developing brains cause them to experience a different physiological response to concussion than adults and take longer to recover, and they have other specific risk factors, such as the risk of second impact syndrome.

Thanks for that? I still think he plays.

Well, cleared to practice today. Guess he was part of the 63% with no symptoms after less than a day to 3 days.

    • Yeah keeping an Elite QB on the sideline is key, so great point. I think when we were up 24-14, Frank was probably thinking keep the foot on the gas and go for the kill. We go up 31-14 and the game is over. Maybe he went about it wrong but Fisher getting blown up on that fumble was a shock, nobody seen that coming. You just can't turn it over against the better teams and win. Our D isn't good enough against QB's like Brady when the O turns it over. The Hines fumble may be the key play of the whole game when you single out 1 play, that gave them 7 points. I love Hines and think he is similar to what the Chargers had with Sproles but that play was costly. 
    • Besides, Wentz makes the final call at the line, after seeing the Defense. When they were stacked, he passed. Soon as they switched out, it sounds like he audibled to a run.   (I heard the game on the radio. I didn’t see it on tv)
    • well to be fair, i doubt many coaches trust their defense when up against tom brady lol.     but here's the thing...what's the one strategy that teams have tried to employ, and have had the most success with against guys like Brady, Manning and Mahomes?  play ball control and keep that QB on the sidelines.  and when your team's biggest strength is the run blocking of it's OL and TEs and their best skill player and only player currently in the conversation for MVP is their RB, it becomes all the more obvious.     I will say this though..I would absolutely love to see this team with Gary Kubiak calling the plays on offense.  he knew how to utilize the run game, play action and boot legs (something we see very little of even though Wentz is very mobile).
    • We'll be fine. Take care of business vs the Texans, go into the bye 7-6 and let the AFC battle between themselves.  
    • I hate to keep bringing this up but in Reich's 1st year as coach we went 10-6 and won a playoff game with Luck. Had Luck been our QB since then I am certain Frank would have had 11 or 12 wins every season since then and we would've been an elite team, maybe even a SB champ or close. It didn't happen so I won't dwell on it but that is my opinion.
