Great news, looking forward to seeing him play more.

Also good that he's just a week away from being able to start contact work.

Big relief, eager to see him at 100%. But didn't he come off the bench towards the end of last season a couple of times or am I making that up? Was he wasn't or he cleared at that time? Perhaps it comes and goes.

Good news, but how did he play in other games if he's only just been cleared of the concussion symptoms?

Excellent - would be good to see him at full speed!

Poor bloke was really unlucky (as were the other signings) last season. Let's hope him and the others keep injury free this year because it'll be like we've added three more players to the team.

As for the medical ins and outs, I suspect you get a provisional all clear, play, then redo the tests, then find evidence that the game has set you back, go back in the concussion protocol...repeat ad nauseam.
