If you were doing a group project that was worth 30% of you mark and you had to work with a guy who didn't do any work and who was really annoying, and then he got a concussion playing hockey, would you help him with his work so he doesn't fail or just ignore it because you have 1234701823 other things to do?

Have you spoken to your teacher about the fact he hasn't done anything?

Okay, that's kind of where I was going there - were you going to be marked on your contributions to the project or the whole thing.

If it won't affect you, let him fail. If he has got a concussion he should have a medical certificate or whatever to explain that, right? So if he wants to use it as an excuse he should do that. But other than that, not your fault.

Considering he didn't want to participate prior to his concussion, I'd say give him the thinnest slice possible and just do your best on the project in order to ensure you get your deserved mark. Unless he has changed his attitude about the project now post-concussion...

Something similar happened in my marketing class last semester. We were forced to take on a loafer, but luckily my instructor was cool and knew about him so marked him separately from the rest of us.
