For the sake of argument let's say he does return on day 1. How often do guys return after this kind of injury without it impacting their game play?
(I'm asking this because I really don't know the answer. It isn't meant to be rhetorical.)

I took the same position as you do when Bruschi was considering coming back after his stroke. I thought that it was a terrible decision on his part; but, of course, the decision was Bruschi's to make after doctors cleared him and he got many more medical opinions.
So it is with Mike Wright. The nfl is getting more and more serious and strict in its rules regarding concussions. If Wright is allowed to play and he seeks additional medical advice, then I still have the same position as I did when Bruschi was coming back. And again, as was the case then, the decision is Mike Wright's to make. Personally, playing seems very, very risky.

Mike Wright gets a hell of a lot more respect from opposing coaches than he does Pats fans. I think you'd be surprised at how many double teams the guy faces.
that may be. I haven't noticed it, nor do I have an eye for noticing that sort of thing. I guess I always think back to when we were facing Baltimore in the '09 playoffs and only Warren and Wilfork were holding their ground. I shouldn't fixate on one bad game.

Logan Mankins (6'4" 320 lbs)
Ryan Wendell (6'2" 300 lbs)
Marcus Cannon (6'5" 340 lbs)
One can only hope that he consults Bruschi and get additional medical opinions, as Bruschi did.
Personally, I would think that the organization would have the same advice.
FWIW, though, Bruschi's situation was very different, from a medical standpoint. Yes, he was rehabbing from a stroke, but aside from the risk of deconditioning, there was essentially zero risk of playing football, in and of itself, contributing to any sort of a "relapse" of his condition, especially after the surgical intervention for his PFO.
