I'd like to see that quote.
Last I heard, Crennel said he would have to be evaluated. I haven't heard anything more than that.
It's part of the league's new rules on concussions. That "independent neurologist" bit is about any player with a concussion returning to the game. I don't know who made the initial assessment.
Once removed for the duration of a practice or game, the player should not be considered for return-to-football activities until he is fully asymptotic, both at rest and after exertion, has a normal neurological examination, normal neuropsychological testing, and has been cleared to return by both his team physician(s) and the independent neurological consultant.
Again, no clue who made the initial call on his concussion.
