Taylor Twellman Out Indefinitely

According to MLSnet, Taylor Twellman is now out indefinitely with concussion-related symptoms. These issues all stem from a punch to Taylor Twellman’s head from LA Galaxy goalie Steve Cronin during an August 30 collision, giving Twellman a concussion. While Twellman headed in a goal in the first half of that game, he collided with Cronin. Twellman remained in the game, skipped the next one, and went on to play the final eight games. However, it seems that something just hasn’t been right with Twellman ever since that hit to the head.

According to Revolution Vice President of Player Personnel Michael Burns:

Concussions, especially repeated concussions, are very dangerous and the most important thing for Taylor and his future – both off the field and on – is to get the rest he needs so he can return to normal as quickly as possible.

This news does not bode well for one the Revolution’s finest players. Concussions and their aftermaths have ended many great professional sports careers. I’m reminded of Troy Aikman and Steve Young: both had their careers cut short due to lingering effects and potential dangers of playing contact sports after sustaining serious concussions.

Let’s hope Twellman is okay and can fully recover from this painful accident.

  1. For the short term, the MLS Cup is out of reach without Twellman. Adam Cristman is good enough to shoulder part of the load…but he will need to come up huge.

    As for Twellman…I doubt he’ll ever play in Europe now. It’s competitive enough as it is, and they won’t take damaged goods.
