    Poppens suffers concussion, Fennelly calls her doubtful for Drake

    At Bill Fennelly's press conference right now.

    Chelsea Poppens indeed suffered a concussion on Friday. She is "doubtful" for tomorrow's game vs. Drake. I'll whip up a blog on this story later today.

    I was waiting to hear about Poppens. Thanks for this update. I hope she is well soon.

    The good news is we have a bench to support her recovery time.

    Wesley is right. without Pop our team will be pushed to contribute and appear to be able to do so.

    I fear that what we see in Pop's style is a continuing risk of trauma and accumulating brain injury. She may have to pick her floor battles wisely to avoid further head trauma which may lessen her effectiveness.

    And we have a favorable schedule with over a week off after the Drake game.

    Re: Poppens suffers concussion, Fennelly calls her doubtful for Drake

    Does anyone know if a player can work on the bike or other conditioning, lifting, or shooting during this time?

    Tpically their physical activity is limited due to the brain trauma. At my university, players are not allowed to compete until 7 days after all symptoms disappear.

    I hope Z gets a shot during this time. I've never understood why for the most part all she gets is garbage time minutes.

    Re: Poppens suffers concussion, Fennelly calls her doubtful for Drake

    I hope Pop can recover. These concussions can linger for so long with some people, plus the way she plays the game.....there has to be a lot of concern even when she does come back.


    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".

    Competition risks contact - I was hoping she could maintain conditioning on an exercise bike. I recall pics of the bike in the practice gym in the past.

    I have been pretty impressed with Z's play this year. You can tell she is concentrating on defense and rebounding which have always been her weaknesses and sticking closer to the paint. I hope she gets some time too. But they are going to have to get Baier time since they may be dependent on her next year.
