In the best news the West Virginia football team has received all week, running back CJ Donaldson has made it through the concussion protocol and is now eligible to return to play.
WVU head coach Neal Brown, who had previously said his freshman leading rusher was progressing well, went one step further on his radio show Tuesday night.
“CJ is doing well. He really is. He’s through the stages of the concussion protocol and doing well. He’s got a doctor’s appointment tomorrow (Wednesday) and, as long as everything checks out there, I think he will be back at practice when we start Texas Tech prep on Sunday. He’s doing well. I’m looking forward to getting him back,” said Brown.
West Virginia Football Clarifies Concussion Protocol Concerning CJ Donaldson

His status remains unknown, but a college player is not even able to get back out on the field until he passes the concussion protocol process. Brown also reiterated he goes “by the book” when it comes to concussions when he spoke to members of the media, including WVSN’s Mike Asti, Tuesday afternoon.
Donaldson has been ruled out for Thursday night against Baylor, but many are taking Brown’s comments to signify he is pointing to next Saturday in Lubbock, Texas when the Mountaineers face Texas Tech as a possibility for a return. He had to be carted off the field in Austin after sustaining a concussion following a knee to his head.
