No. That means that he can practice this week but we won't know if he can play until they run the second test on him.
Basically, when you get a concussion, the protocol is to run the neurological tests against the player then and then a few days later. Then they look at the results of those tests, compare against his baseline, and decide whether he can play or not.
The second test could be run anywhere from Thursday to Saturday, I think.
