Johan Franzen’s return to the Red Wings lineup lasted one game. Franzen woke up Tuesday with a reccurence of the concussion symptoms that kept him out of 16 games before returning to play Sunday against Florida. Franzen was put on the seven-day short-term injured list and the team activated forward Joakim Andersson, who played Tuesday in the 5-0 loss to the Flyers. “He woke up and didn’t feel right, so we have to do what is right,” general manager Ken Holland said. “He just has to have a lot of days being healthy before he plays.” Holland said Franzen has been in constant contact with specialists and will continue to be this week. Franzen collided with Tampa Bay’s Radko Gudas Dec. 15, which triggered the concussion. Returning to the ice Sunday against the Panthers, Franzen played 16:45 in Sunday’s game and had an assist. Franzen made the trip with the Red Wings to Philadelphia but stayed at the hotel during the morning skate. “I found out this morning,” coach Mike Babcock said. “I don’t know much about it, to be honest with you. Anytime it’s a head injury, we’ve been through it a number of times, they are hard things.
