Missed this when Gary Lawless posted this to TSN.ca. Old news but I got a good laugh out of the highlighted portion
[i]When is a concussion not a concussion?
Wide receiver Duron Carter says he has headaches and couldn’t sit through a movie during the Montreal Alouettes off week. He says he’s undergoing the CFL concussion protocol.
Head coach and general manager Jim Popp says Carter is not in concussion protocol but is being treated for headaches. Popp said Carter had no symptoms following the Alouettes game against the Ottawa RedBlacks in Week 2, but did develop a headache the next week.
“He’s not in concussion protocol. He hasn’t been diagnosed with a concussion. He’s being treated for a headache. He’s being treated in a protocol manner but not because he has a concussion,? Popp told reporters on Monday.
On Tuesday Popp told TSN the medical staff in Montreal was being cautious Carter but reiterated that he had never been diagnosed with a concussion.
Carter took part in Tuesday’s practice and is expected to play when the Alouettes host the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Friday.
Carter is appealing a one-game suspension for bumping RedBlacks head coach Rick Campbell. He suffered a hit to the head on the previous play and may be investigating using loss of impulse control as a result of brain trauma as the basis of his appeal
Maybe it was Popp who had the concussion all along. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
