This isnt the first time Todd McLellan has been concussed, but getting knocked out by an errant high-stick to the head during a Feb. Air Max 90 Rosse . 26 game against Minnesota has definitely altered the way the San Jose Shark head coach views concussions. "I guess you could say I was pretty old school when it came to concussions," McLellan told TSN yesterday. "You know, get a concussion, shake it off, get back in the game as soon as you can. This (being concussed) has really shown me you cant play through this. If I had to play a game right now, theres no just way, not even close. I would say I have a much better understanding of this (concussion) issue than before." As it is, McLellan expects to be behind the bench for the Sharks tonight when they take on the Edmonton Oilers. But until he actually gets behind the bench, absorbs the racous noise and bright lights of an NHL game and deals with the speed of the game unfolding before him, he still isnt 100 per cent certain how hell react. "I am feeling much better and I think Im good to go," he said, "but well have to see how it is during a game." McLellan was concussed a week ago Sunday. All last week, he experienced the classic symptoms of concussion -- headaches, nausea, motion sickness, a sense of detachment from his body and everything feeling as though it was moving really slowly or too quickly. "I told my kids its like when I was a kid driving in the car with my Dad and we would come up to a railway crossing and you would get stopped as the train whipped by," he said. "If you looked at the (rail) cars going by so fast, you would disoriented and you werent sure if the car was moving or not. Its been like that for me. Nothing is moving at the speed its supposed to be moving at." This isnt the first time McLellan has been concussed. He recalls having one in junior hockey when he wound up on the losing side of a fight. "But I dont recall the symptoms being as severe as they are this time," he said. McLellan thought last Friday he was well enough to run practice, so he did. He felt sick and disoriented after that. He wasnt able to be behind the bench on Saturday night. Yesterday, he gave practice another shot and felt much better in the wake of that, feeling encouraged enough to pronounce himself fit to be behind the bench tonight. Hes also been consulting with Edmonton Oiler head coach Tom Renney, who will be on the opposing team bench tonight. Renney was recently concussed when struck in the head by a puck during practice. Renney also missed some time. "Its good to talk to someone whos been through it," McLellan said. "Hopefully, the worst is behind me now." Nike Air Max 2016 Donna . The blockbuster trade that will send Kevin Love to team up with LeBron James in Cleveland will be completed on Saturday, making the Cavaliers an instant favourite in the Eastern Conference and turning Andrew Wiggins into something of an anomaly. Nike Air Max 2016 Saldi . -- Third baseman David Freese has been put on the 15-day disabled list by the Los Angeles Angels because of a broken right middle finger.FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Another week, another round of Gronk questions. And another few days before it becomes clearer whether the New England Patriots star tight end might make his 2013 debut Sunday. Rob Gronkowski has missed all five games while recovering from off-season surgeries on his left forearm and back. But hes getting closer to playing and that could happen against the unbeaten New Orleans Saints on Sunday, which should help the Patriots struggling offence. A person with knowledge of Gronkowskis health says doctors havent cleared him to play yet and wont know for a few days. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no official announcement was made. Gronkowski participated in practice on a limited basis on Wednesday. reported Tuesday that he is expected to be cleared to play this week and that its likely but not definite that hell play. Gronkowski has been asked about his status on Wednesdays throughout the season. But hes shed little light on when he might return, saying repeatedly hes taking it "day by day." He skipped this weeks media availability Wednesday and was expected to speak Thursday. Quarterback Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick also get peppered with questions about when Gronkowski will return but provide little insight. "Whenever that happens, who knows?" Brady said Wednesday. "I feel like Ive kind of talked about it a lot the past five weeks. If he is there, hes there. If hes not, hes not. Were going to try to win anyway." Belichick answered several questions about Gronkowski on Wednesday. His response to three of them: "day to day." And how did he look in practice? "He practiced," Belichick said. The interest in Gronkowski has intensified as Brady and the Patriots offence have been inconsistent. But the team is 4-1, so rushing Gronkowski back hasnt been imperative. And the Patriots are still favourites to win the AFC East even though Miami (3-2) and the New York Jets (3-2) are off to decent starts. That said, the Patriots are 24th in the NFL in scoring after leading the league last year. Brady is 22nd in passer rating after ranking sixth in 2012. So, clearly, Gronkowski, who has 187 catches in his 43 ggames with the Patriots, would help, especially in the red zone. Nike Air Max 2016 Blu. After all, this season, New England tight ends have five receptions -- total. "When you get down in the red zone, you want to score a touchdown," rookie receiver Kenbrell Thompkins said. "You dont want to score three points. Sometimes when you score three points, it can hurt you and, unfortunately, thats what cost us in the Cincinnati game." The Patriots reached the red zone just once in last Sundays 13-6 loss to the Bengals but settled for a field goal after getting a first down at the 1-yard line. "Whoever is out there, whatever personnel, every play is designed to make positive yards, and a lot of them are designed to score touchdowns," Brady said. "But they dont always do that, so were trying to figure out how to do that and do better than what weve done the first five weeks." The 6-foot-6 Gronkowski could make a huge difference with his strong hands, ability to shield the ball from defenders and skill at reaching for passes with his long arms. The Patriots didnt put him on the physically unable to perform list at the start of the season. That would have required him to miss the first six games and barred him from practice. He hasnt missed a practice since the season began and could be back for the sixth game on Sunday. He was listed as questionable for the past three games after being doubtful for the previous two. The final injury report comes out after Fridays practice. "Hes a beast, man. I cant wait to see him, whenever he gets backs," receiver Aaron Dobson said. "Being out there practicing with him kind of gives you a feel of being out there but in a game ... it could be different." Gronkowski is also a quality safety valve, a player Brady can dump the ball off to when pressured. "Hes got a lot of excitement and brings a lot of energy to the team. Hes a great player," Brady said. "Im just kind of waiting like everyone else. Whenever it is, it is. Were 4-1. Weve won four games without him. If he is not there this week, weve got to try to go 5-1 anyway. "Hopefully, when he does get back out there, we will be more productive."
