Nathan Horton Suffers Mild Concussion
Standard Spin: Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli can call it "mild" all he wants, but there's no such thing for a player with Horton's injury history. Fantasy owners no doubt recall Horton suffered a severe concussion in last year's Stanley Cup final, so this latest flare up has definitely got our attention. Horton missed the last 4 games of the playoffs and had heavy concussion symptoms, but he was able to overcome the injury through the summer and play without incident... until now.
The good news is that his symptoms are nothing like last time, but the bad news is Horton has suffered two concussions now, which makes him susceptible to more in the future. He's doubtful for Tuesday's game, so look for an update after the All-star break. (Jan.24)
