Justin said, “Metaphorically, I could be ready tomorrow, but physically, I do want to take care of myself. I do think that repeated concussions, with me going to sleep like that, me receiving that shot. It would be foolish for me to jump back into training any time before 180 days.” 

“I could do cardio, I can stay in shape, that’s what I want to try and do. Especially the older I get, the harder it is to get back to the best shape of my life, so I want to stay active. Obviously, the physical contact is going to be limited for quite some time, just because I want to preserve myself. I think it will be six months, at least, before I get back to taking shots. But that doesn’t say that I won’t be training the whole time.”
