What happened with Brandin Cooks? He showed up on the injury report?
"Yes, he came in Wednesday, felt good, practiced and I want to say at some point at the latter part of practice he felt some dizziness and some headaches. We held him out Thursday and kind of put him through the protocol. It wasn't anything specific from the game or during the game and yet he had some symptoms of a mild concussion. He felt better yesterday and he had his appointment with the doctors, went through that process and cleared him. He was full today and probable for the game. We just are trying to be overly conservative or cautious with him he'll be playing" You're not even aware of a hit he took to his head? He just had symptoms?
"It was on Wednesday once he got to exercising and moving around and running and participating and he went through practice and at some point we stopped him and then held him out Thursday."
