The Luke Stocker Mystery ContinuesAugust 21st, 2012
Luke Stocker didn’t “feel well.” Luke Stocker “felt funny.”
Those are a couple of ways Greg Schiano has described whatever has kept Stocker from significant practice time and last week’s Titans-Bucs preseason game. It’s a troubling mystery, since the Bucs need Stocker and he was on the sidelines with his mystery ailment today at One Buc Palace.
“He did stuff over the weekend. He did stuff Monday, and then he felt funny again,” Schiano said today. “We’ll just have him see the doctor.”
Last week, veteran Bucs beat scribe Woody Cummings, of The Tampa Tribune, noted Schiano refuted commentary that claimed Stocker was dealing with post-concussion symptoms. Though Schiano has never shared what “the doctor” has reported about Stocker.
At this point, Joe’s not sure what’s going on or what to believe. But the reality is that Stocker is not right, and if he’s still having lingering effects from a traumatic brain injury, aka a concussion, then that could sideline him for quite a while. Joe wishes Stocker well.
