Kevin Love suffers concussion during game

Minnesota Timberwolves power forward, Kevin Love, sustained a mild concussion and neck strain last week after he was elbowed in the face by Javale McGee in the first quarter  against the Denver Nuggets.

Love was kept overnight at a nearby hospital as a precaution and did not play in Thursday’s game against the LA Clippers due to his injuries. He has also missed games against the Indiana Pacers and Oklahoma City.

With only a handful of games left, Love may be out for the rest of the season. He will not be allowed to play until he is cleared by the league’s director of the concussion program.

Man gets staple lodged in brain, survives

Earlier this month, a 27 year-old construction worker got a two and a half inch staple lodged into his head while on the job. He says he was standing up quickly and hit the safety on an air-powered staple gun a coworker was holding.

The staple went through both halves of his brain and miraculously missed every major blood vessel. The man, who was conscious following the accident, said it did not hurt and didn’t know anything happened until his coworkers started to panic. He was even able to fill out his own paperwork at the hospital.

Surgeons were able to remove the staple and he is expected to return to work in a couple of weeks.
