Nathan Horton Still Experiencing Concussion Symptoms, According To Claude Julien

Boston Bruins head coach Claude Julien said after practice on Friday that forward Nathan Horton is still experiencing concussion symptoms (via WEEI.com).

Julien said that Horton rode a stationary bike last week and skated on Sunday. The concussion symptoms came back after the skate.

"He's been pulled back," Julien said. "He's got some symptoms, so we pulled him back. That's why I said as far as for me to come out every and [say there's a] step forward, a step backward. He's back to square one and we're giving him some time here. Those symptoms, once he got back on the ice, came back."

Horton has been out since taking a hit to the head from Philadelphia Flyers forward Tom Sestito on Jan. 22. The concussion Horton sustained from that hit was his second since last June. Horton has 17 goals and 15 assists this season.
