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.

WASHINGTON - Chicago's Elena Delle Donne suffered a concussion yesterday and is questionable for the All-Star game this weekend. Delle Donne fell to the court while going for a loose ball against Washington and left the game with about a minute left in the third quarter. She didn't return and the Sky lost, 82-78. "She's not nauseous now," said Sky coach Pokey Chatman, who confirmed the injury after the Mystics' team doctor examined Delle Donne. "She's groggy, headache . . . moving gingerly.

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.

Eric Lindros suffered the eighth concussion of his NHL career last night in the New York Rangers' 2-1 loss to the visiting Washington Capitals. Lindros took a hard hit along the boards from defenseman Jason Doig in the second period. On his next shift, Lindros took the faceoff and immediately dropped his gloves and stick and went after Doig. Lindros, who did not return for the third period, was unavailable for comment after the game. "We've spoken to the doctor, [concussion specialist]

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.

Calling it a "significant improvement" over an earlier proposal, a federal judge in Philadelphia granted preliminary approval Monday to the NFL's second settlement offer to former players who sued the league over concussion-related health problems. The move came six months after U.S. District Judge Anita Brody rejected the first deal put forth by the league. It opens the door for more than 20,000 of the NFL's potentially eligible retirees to pursue claims as part of the class-action settlement.

MILWAUKEE - The latest sign this summer is luckless for the Phillies came Sunday evening when Cliff Lee planned to throw about 70 pitches for single-A Clearwater at Space Coast Stadium in Viera, Fla. A Florida thunderstorm suspended the game in the third inning; Lee was limited to 24 pitches in two innings. The Phillies offered Lee the option of finishing his outing in an indoor batting cage. Lee declined. The 35-year-old pitcher wants to test his strained left elbow against hitters.

MIAMI - The immediate sensation from being struck in the head by a 78-m.p.h. curveball was not enough to prevent Carlos Ruiz from catching the final three innings of a 14-inning win over the Marlins on Thursday. But Ruiz suffered a concussion that night, and there has been no progress since. His injury "is maybe a little more serious than we originally thought, unfortunately," Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Tuesday. "He's had concussion issues in the past, so we have to be careful with him. " Ruiz did not travel with the team.

Catcher Carlos Ruiz was placed on the seven-day disabled list Friday night with concussion symptoms after being hit on the helmet by a pitch from Miami's A.J. Ramos in the 11th inning Thursday. Ruiz remained in the game during the Phillies' 14-inning win over the Marlins, but he was not in manager Ryne Sandberg's starting lineup Friday. Sandberg said Ruiz's condition was being monitored earlier in the day, but indicated that the catcher was just getting a day off following a 4-hour, 41-minute game.

The NFL agreed Wednesday to lift the $675 million cap on its settlement offer to former players suffering from concussion-related injuries - a move that league officials hoped would satisfy a federal judge who rejected an earlier plan over concerns that the money wouldn't last. Attorneys for the players and the NFL submitted their revised settlement proposal to Philadelphia-based U.S. District Judge Anita Brody six months after she refused to approve their first agreement. Even with the cap removed, both sides said they did not expect claims from the roughly 20,000 potentially eligible retirees to exceed their original $675 million target.

NFL COMMISSIONER Roger Goodell isn't going to like this: Variety reports that West Philly native Will Smith will star in a film about concussions in professional football. The news comes a week after another group of former NFL players filed a complaint in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia claiming the league knowingly failed to inform them there was a link between concussions and long-term health problems. That came on the heels of a class action - also filed in Philly - in which a $765 million settlement, reached by the league and former players last August, was declined by a judge who said it wasn't enough money to last over the 65-year span of the suit.

Less than an hour after Craig Berube had confirmed that the Flyers considered Steve Mason healthy enough to tend goal for them again, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman treated the topic of concussions with a smugness that belied his league's substandard policy. This was Tuesday, April 22, before Game 3 of the Flyers-Rangers series, and Bettman had come to town for a quick news conference, a chance to tout Philadelphia's hosting the NHL draft in June. He was asked once about the secrecy surrounding Mason's "upper-body injury" and once about the intrinsic viciousness of the NHL's postseason, and taken together, his two answers were a jumbled justification for a culture and a concussion protocol that still place a player's utility ahead of his health.

On the morning of what, to that point, would be the most important hockey game of his life, Steve Mason wasn't certain he would play until after they had removed the needles from his head. The headaches had returned the day before, that same dull throbbing that he'd lived with for a week after suffering a concussion against the Pittsburgh Penguins on April 12. Only now Game 4 of the Flyers' first-round series against the Rangers was less than 12 hours away, and Mason had expected to start in goal.
