The report I heard was that he was a little off-balance initially (which is to be expected), but fully lucid. Perhaps they need to adopt a different assessment protocol (like the NFL?), but it doesn't seem like they did anything irresponsible under the circumstances.

I wonder if they check for reactive pupils, they must. But do they check again after stage I wonder. Or do nothing unless further symptoms surface; headache, tunnel vision etc.

Protocols have got to be in place...

The do have protocols in place; the question is whether they're adequate. It sounds like they're probably not.
