AFTER MATT READ missed four consecutive games, with little injury information and no skating, it was clear he was suffering from more than a standard "upper-body" injury. Turns out, where there is smoke, there is fire. Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren announced last night that Read has been suffering from "concussion-like symptoms. " Read attempted to practice during Saturday's morning skate in Phoenix but never felt quite right. Holmgren said the Flyers did not announce it as a concussion because their medical staff did not initially believe it to be one. "Initially, he passed all of the tests that are required by the protocol," Holmgren said.

Steve Young will miss at least a week and possibly more because of his latest concussion, though tests showed no signs of more serious brain trauma, the agent for the San Francisco 49ers quarterback said yesterday. Young took a frightening hit midway through Monday night's victory at Arizona and left with his fourth concussion since 1996. He underwent an MRI yesterday and then met with Dr. Gary Steinberg, the chief neurologist at Stanford Hospital, who treated Young when he suffered his last concussion two years ago. "The MRI did not show any of the so-called white spots, which are thought to be indicative of progressive brain trauma," said agent Leigh Steinberg, who is not related to the neurologist.

As if losing Eric Lindros for the playoffs wasn't enough, it now appears the Flyers may have lost Mark Recchi as well. Recchi suffered a possible concussion late in the second period of last night's 2-2 tie against Buffalo. "Right now, they think it's a concussion," a grim Flyers coach Roger Neilson said late last night. "He'll be checked out [today]. " This would be the third concussion for the Flyers right wing. More significantly, it would be his second since March 22, when he was injured in Toronto in a collision with Danil Markov along the boards.

Milwaukee Brewers rightfielder Geoff Jenkins suffered a mild concussion yesterday after colliding with first baseman Prince Fielder as they pursued a foul ball. Jenkins is listed as day-to-day. Both players were going after a foul pop by Brendan Harris in the fourth inning of an 8-4 loss to the Washington Nationals, and the 260-pounder Fielder never saw Jenkins as the rightfielder plowed into him. "I'm a little woozy," Jenkins said. "It's just one of those freak plays.

Malcolm Jenkins and Zach Ertz suffered concussions last season - the first, they said, of their NFL careers. In the Eagles' 10th game, Ertz, a tight end, caught a pass and tried to hurdle a defender for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He landed on his left shoulder, and his head snapped back as if he were the mannequin behind the wheel in an old driver's-ed video. He sat out the Eagles' next game, four days later on Thanksgiving in Detroit. In the Eagles' eighth game, Jenkins, one of the Eagles' starting safeties, lowered his head into the chest of Dallas Cowboys running back Darren McFadden as he tried to tackle him. He rose to his feet and felt his mind fog over but didn't tell anyone.

Former football players at Pennsylvania State University and five other schools filed suit this week alleging that the institutions and the NCAA failed to protect them from concussion and other head injury, putting them at risk of long-term cognitive decline. But within a day of the federal lawsuits being filed, two of the named plaintiffs in the Penn State complaint, former safety James Boyd and former linebacker Eric Ravotti, said they did not want to be involved. In emails quoted by Pennlive.com, Boyd said he asked to be removed from the complaint because he did not realize when he signed on that his alma mater would be named, while Ravotti said he did not suffer from any cognitive problems and did not realize he would be a named plaintiff.

A federal appeals court on Monday upheld the NFL's landmark class-action settlement aimed at compensating its former players for the long-term health effects of repeated concussions. The ruling by the Philadelphia-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit served as an endorsement of a deal worth potentially as much as $1 billion and fashioned to end one of the most protracted and publicly debated fights in the history of the football league. If no further appeals are filed, league retirees could begin receiving benefits within four months, lawyers for the plaintiffs said.

MIDWAY THROUGH the first period of the Flyers' 3-2 overtime victory Monday night, Winnipeg's 6-5, 260-pound defenseman, Dustin Byfuglien, pounded Brayden Schenn into the corner boards. Schenn crumpled to the ice, wobbled to his feet, and skated slowly to his bench. Two periods later, desperately trying to regain a lead lost, Jake Voracek drove hard to the net and collided with Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba, whose leg violently snapped back the head of his goaltender Ondrej Pavelec, who collapsed forward, holding his head.

Companies around the country are developing headbands, mouth guards, helmet padding, and skullcaps to try to protect athletes' heads during impacts. Medical experts warn that no product can prevent concussions or the repeated subconcussive hits that may also cause lasting brain damage.
