Update: Jake Gardiner no longer "not in a concussion state"

This isn't too surprising. The Toronto Marlies have upgraded Jake Gardiner's status to "concussion-like symptoms" although the way this is progressing, I have to wonder why they're avoiding the term "concussion" altogether.

From what I understand, Jake Gardiner took a hit from Kevin Porter in Saturday's game against the Lake Erie Monsters, scored a goal on the ensuing powerplay, and then sat out the third period. After the game, Dallas Eakins said Gardiner "wasn't in a concussion state" and held him out of Sunday's game for "precautionary" reasons.

So, yes, this is a huge blow to Toronto, both Maple Leafs and Marlies. I can't find a video of the hit, so if anybody comes across one, please get it over to me somehow.
