Spinal Cord Concussion for Big Ben

According to the Post Gazette via profootballtalk.com Ben suffered a spinal cord concussion as opposed to the original concussion that was reported for the last two weeks.  This seems to make sense with the extra care they took in putting him on the stretcher.  I kind of thought there was a bit more to this story when he was being carted off in the season finale.

This was the same type of concussion that former peice of crap  QB Tommy Maddox suffered in 2002 vs Tennesee.  Dawan Landry of the Raves also had this type of concussion earlier in the season and hasn't played since and was eventually put on IR.

As I am not a doctor does anyone on this site have more information about the long term effects of a spinal cord concussion vs a run of the mill concussion?  Just doing a standard google search I can't find a ton of information on the injury so I am not sure what to think about it.

I guess Ben might not be as big of a drama queen as Keshaywn Johnson likes to think he is.
