Report: Danny Briere isn’t dealing with a concussion


Upon hearing the Philadelphia Flyers’ vague report that Danny Briere has an upper-body injury, it was natural to wonder if it was a concussion.*’s Sarah Baicker gives Flyers fans a reason to keep their glasses half-full: it’s a shoulder issue, not a head injury.

Briere already fought off a concussion earlier this season, so a recurring issue sounded awfully scary.

Of course, shoulder problems aren’t always a piece of cake, either. It’s not clear how serious that issue is, but much like Sidney Crosby’s neck issues, the bright side is that the problem isn’t shadowy and scary as a head ailment often can be.

* – It’s kind of nice to see that reveal-nothing strategy backfire a bit every now and then, right?
