As long as he can swing, hit, run, catch, do anything that he needs to without feeling it in any way, he'll be cleared to play. Sometimes that can be a week. Sometimes that can be a couple of weeks. It really depends on how fast he progresses. From a medical standpoint, he will be safe to play as soon as his symptoms resolve."
