    There was a preseason game today between the Buffaloes and the Giants. Hessman wasn’t in the game, but the play-by-play guy reported this story and nothing more. I don’t think there is anything serious happening right now and the team is just taking all the precautions.

      Thanks for the heads up fighting ham.

      I also haven’t seen any updates in the news either. I’m guessing that means he’s doing alright.
