08:15 AM ET 12.26 | While the Orioles hope to see Brian Roberts in 2012, they are reportedly not counting on his return for the opener. There's no way to be certain that the headaches and dizziness will subside. Concussion specialists can speculate. They can't provide a guarantee. You see what's happened to NHL star Sidney Crosby. And you saw how Roberts' symptoms returned -- by simply diving into first base in a May 16 game at Fenway Park. Roberts didn't seem to be encouraged by his progress when interviewed earlier this month at Dave and Buster's at the Arundel Mills Mall. He didn't say much about his health beyond how he was taking it day by day. His lack of enthusiasm and his body language spoke the loudest.
