"He actually felt better today, and was actually talking about possibly playing tomorrow," trainer Barry Weinberg said after the Cardinals' 2-1 victory over the Reds on Thursday. "We just have to judge each day by his symptoms."
Edmonds underwent an MRI exam on Tuesday night and other medical tests on Wednesday. During Thursday's game he was examined by a neurologist as part of the team's ongoing search for answers. Results of blood work are not expected back for several days.
"We're just following the path of the post-concussion syndrome and just checking on all possibilities," Weinberg said.
Edmonds had a light workout earlier Thursday and reported no problems such as headaches, blurred vision and light-headedeness.
"That's a subjective thing and his input is very important, to tell us exactly how he feels and if any of the symptoms occur," Weinberg said.
Edmonds was removed before a pitch was thrown in the fifth inning on Tuesday night after complaining of dizziness and blurred vision to an assistant trainer before taking the field.
Edmonds had what was described as a slight concussion on June 21 when he crashed into the wall in Chicago trying to rob White Sox third baseman Joe Crede of a home run. Edmonds said he's had intermittent bouts of dizziness and blurred vision along with nausea since then, feelings that have intensified after a couple diving attempts in the last week or so.
Edmonds, an eight-time Gold Glove center fielder, was batting .261 with 18 home runs and 65 RBI.
