Nolan Patrick has been out since October 24th with a concussion, and he may still have a while yet until he returns to game action.

He had recently returned to practice in a non-contact jersey, but doesn't appear to be able to participate in practice today, indicating a potential setback in his recovery.

Concussions are tricky business, and must be treated with extreme caution, as they've been known to seriously jeopardize players' careers.

Patrick remains on injured reserve for the foreseeable future. Radko Gudas' status also remains in question.

The second overall pick in 2017 has 3 points in 9 games this season.
