I.Being symptom-free for 24 hours (essentially at total rest)

The report on Hopkins then fundamentally tells us that at rest, he is still exhibiting signs and/or symptoms of the concussion he sustained last Saturday.
So what symptoms are we talking about? Are these symptoms he can easily hide, or is there some kind of objective measurement of them?
