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.
Thanks, TPN!

Strictly curious here.
Who runs the test? The team or the league?
Is this self-policing in which case, the team just needs to submit the result of the test to the league, and that's it?
