It’s been over a month and a half since we last saw John Saunders on ABC or ESPN. He has been off the air since September 10 after sustaining a concussion from a fall on the ESPN on ABC College Football set. During his time away, substitute hosts have been fulfilling his duties on ABC and ESPN for college football and The Sports Reporters, respectively.
However, John broke some news himself on Twitter on Wednesday evening, announcing that he will return to work this Sunday hosting The Sports Reporters.
John also explains what happened on the day he fell:
ESPN had a brief explanation of what happened on its Front Row blog last month, but did not go into detail on what happened.
John’s tweet is the first time we had heard about concussion although we got a hint last week from Saunders himself on the severity of his injuries.
I’m glad to see that John is able to return and look forward to seeing him back on The Sports Reporters this Sunday morning (10:30 East/7:30 West) on ESPN2.
