Pat Phelan Update

New England Revolution midfielder Pat Phelan suffered a concussion on Wednesday night in a collision with a teammate late in the Revolution’s SuperLiga match with Pachuca at Gillette Stadium. He was momentarily unconscious, but regained consciousness before being stretchered off the field. He was taken by ambulance to Massachusetts General Hospital where he was further evaluated.

Phelan is expected to be out of action for at least one week.

    Thanks for that. Do you think we will be able to find out how the ‘further evaluations’ went? I know we all want to know out of concern for Pat. “…out of action for at least one week” just seems so vague. How severe was the concussion? What grade or level was it classified as?

    I really hope there were no other problems identified and no ‘permanent’ damage. Of course, any concussion carries with it some permanent damage including an increased risk for more concussions. Please keep us posted.

    Our prayers are with Pat and his family.

    Thanks for the update. It was terrible to see him lying prone on the ground, and it’s good to hear he wasn’t injured more seriously.

    Get well Paddy!

    Best wishes for Pat, he played very well to keep Pachuca’s strikers at bay. I hope to see him back in no time.

    Concussions are never good, but glad to hear he wasn’t injured more seriously. That was a pretty scary knock.

    Good to hear he came around on the field. I was surprised that an ambulance didn’t pull up next to the field by the light house…
