Chris Pronger injury timeline: "virus"… knee surgery… “concussion-like symptoms.” Paul Holmgren via the Flyers:
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 indefinitely.
Perhaps HBO cameras have caught some of what’s gone on here. Pronger went from being sick to having a bad knee to seeing Dr. Joseph C. Maroon, a neurosurgeon, and Dr. Michael Collins, a sports concussion expert who was seen by Carlos Ruiz last summer.
The Flyers originally said Pronger had passed a concussion test.
Pronger's “virus” very obviously no longer seems like a virus, and you can’t help but wonder if this has something to do with the eye injury he sustained last month. That last part is speculation, but it was a blow to the head and he did have much swelling around and behind the eye.
Brayden Schenn also has a concussion. Happy Friday.
