Concussion leaves Masoli’s Sat. status uncertain

“We’re watching him very closely and doing all we can to make sure of his situation,” trainer Tim Mullins said yesterday. “Concussions are serious issues, and it’s about how the symptoms are dissipating and going away. He has to pass a set of tests, balance test and then we’ll see how he handles an exertion test.”

Masoli, the Jackson Clarion-Ledger writes, is being tested daily on a variety of parameters, including headaches, nausea, sensitivity to light, irritability, changes in sleep habits and balance tests. While he’s improved somewhat, from vomiting on Sunday because of the injury to responding well to daily tests two days later, head coach Houston Nutt asserts he won’t see the field unless and until he’s fully healthy.
