At the time, Frazier was dealing with persistent headaches. Some 10 days later (and longer than that since the concussion was suffered), he's still dealing with the residual effects of head trauma. Take a look at what some of the Yankees beat writers reported on Saturday:
Listening to Frazier describe his concussion symptoms is sobering. Says he had some “scary” moments driving, so now he has to be driven. Calling his cats the wrong names sometimes.— Marc Carig (@MarcCarig) March 10, 2018
Clint Frazier is still having concussion symptoms.— Bryan Hoch (@BryanHoch) March 10, 2018
"It's affecting my driving. I had a couple of scary moments driving. I'm calling my cats the wrong names at times. But they look the same, so it's hard."
As we noted in the original piece, most individuals see their symptoms clear within a week to 10 days. Frazier is beyond that window, which speaks to how everyone's brains react differently to trauma, highlighting the need for individualized care over a one-size-fits-all approach.
Here's hoping Frazier is nearing a full recovery sooner than later -- and that we all again recognize how serious concussions are, even if they're labeled "mild," like the one Frazier suffered.
