For the latter, the doctor has to attest that in their evaluation the player would not be able to play in a 12 day period.Only if it's a concussion will the player be ruled out for 12 days
If it's a non-concussion injury then they will be free to play if they are fit
There's punishments if the rule is found to be rorted, i.e. the doctor keeps signing notes saying a player would be out for over 12 days but then the players keep coming back the next week.
