Bryan Namoff was involved in a collision near the end of last season that gave him a concussion. At the time, nobody knew the extent of the injury, but I do remember in the locker room after the game he said he was suffering from blurred vision. That was not a good sign. Bryan has been out of action since September.
Naturally it has been a very frustrating time for him, and for a number of reasons he has not wanted to speak publicly about his status. Now, after several months of rest, Bryan is making progress with his symptoms. He graciously decided to speak to us at dcunited.com to share what he has been going through, and what he expects moving forward.
Bryan has managed to keep a positive attitude, in spite of the circumstances. He also singled out two things that have been bright spots in an otherwise very dark period. The first is the attitude of D.C. United’s new coaching staff. He said he feels no pressure from the staff to rush back into action. The peace of mind from the head man Curt Onalfo has made his road to recovery a little easier.
The second thing that Byran emphasized was his gratitude for the D.C. United fans. The continuous thoughts and concerns from the best fans in MLS really touched Bryan. He is committed to repaying the fans in full once he returns to the field.
