Liles slowly works his way back from concussion
COLUMBUS, Ohio â€” Like all concussion sufferers, John-Michael Liles has good days and bad.
The worst took place at TD Garden Nov. 27. During a race for the puck, the Bruins defenseman got tangled up with Tampa Bayâ€™s Ben Bishop, lost his footing, and slammed into the end boards, sustaining a concussion that has left him unable to play since then.
â€œItâ€™s an unfortunate break how it happened,â€ Liles said. â€œItâ€™s not a hit or anything like that. Lose an edge, go into the boards, go in at the wrong angle at the wrong speed. There it is.â€
Good for his health, but don't really see a need for him on the ice anymore. Get healthy and just in case multiple bodies go down.
Backes injury looked serious, possibly a concussion. He's been healthy during most of his career but the wear and tear are catching up to him as he turns 30. Hoping he's not out too long as his presence and experience will be missed.
Who gets the call up? Or do they roll with the usual suspects, Nash, Schaller and Jimmy?
Yeah Hayes probably gets back in ,do they really have anyone in Providence to call up.
Any updates on Backes and how much time he will miss? I'm assuming we wont find out until a week or so?
Hope he is going to be ok.That was a dirty hit he took.
Here's that hit to those who missed it
BACKES OUT OF BRUINS LINEUP 'INDEFINITELY' WITH CONCUSSION
Instructed to not watch TV or use his phone. Sounds like he will be out for a long time.
He has the power of loved rescue dogs on his side, that's some awesome mojo.
Lets hope for a speedy and full recovery.
Any ideas how long he may be out for?
Nope. Too hard to gauge concussions.
Did he even get a phone call from nhl hq?
Sorry to hear about Backes, unfortunately he is reaching critical mass on concussions pretty quickly the last couple years
You could hear someone screaming from the bench " D, heads up! " before the hit. It's pretty obvious that Backes wasn't expecting the hit to come from behind him.
Injury thread ---should be pointed out that Carrier's hand "injury" only lasted the 1 game, which was the rematch against Boston where he would have to face McQuaid.
Amazing, I'm not sure I remember a hand injury only being 1 game before as it always seems to be weeks. Very convenient for Carrier.
Once the trembling in his hands subsided they figured he was healthy enough to play again.
Backes is backes to practice today in a white jersey with spooner and DK
It is that wimp injury....
That is good news
Bruins forward David Backes, diagnosed over the weekend with a concussion and told by doctors to remain home and to avoid texting, was back in uniform Wednesday for a late-morning practice in Brighton.
Backes, 34, was concussed last Thursday in Buffalo when felled by Sabres winger William Carrier with an illegal hit to the head late in the first period.
haha this morning I read the quote about him being told not to text or watch TV and my heart sunk. Then a couple hours later I see that he's practicing and cleared for contact. Concussions are weird. Anyway really glad to see him back.
