It appears that Boston Bruins forward Nathan Horton won't be in the lineup for the foreseeable future.

According to Comcast Sports New England, Horton, who has missed the last six games with a concussion, has been shut down again.

"He's got some symptoms so he's been pulled back," Bruins head coach Claude Julien told the media on Friday.  "That's why I say that it's hard for me to stand up every day with steps forward or steps backward.

"So he's back to square one and we're giving him some time here."

Horton, who was injured by a hit from Flyers forward Tom Sestito on Jan. 22, tried to skate on his own last weekend, only to find that headaches and other symptoms had returned.

This is the second concussion that Horton has gone through in the last year.  In Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals in June, Horton was knocked out of the game, and the series by Vancouver Canucks defenceman Aaron Rome.
