Wil Trapp opens up about MLS soccer about his long road back from concussion symptoms

Despite following the usual and customary concussion protocol and then being cleared by two doctors, Wil Trapp couldn’t make it all the way through his first game back… “That was the lowest point,” he told MLS soccer.com. “I’m sitting there and I just did the two weeks of protocol and I was cleared, so I should be fine.
