New York Jets linebacker Lorenzo Mauldin has been released from the hospital, the team announced Monday.
Mauldin was diagnosed with a concussion on Sunday, after it was initially believed that he may have suffered a neck injury. The rookie went down while making a tackle in the third quarter of the Jets' game against the Browns after it appeared that a teammate made contact with the side of Mauldin's helmet.
Mauldin barely moved on the ground for several minutes before he was taken off the field on a stretcher.
After being released from the hospital, Mauldin thanked fans for their support in a tweet and said that he is ‘perfectly fine.’
Thanks to fans, family, friends prayers and Mount Sinai Hospital for their awesome TLC. I will be perfectly fine. The lord was with me. TY— Lorenzo Mauldin IV (@LozoIV) September 14, 2015
The Jets won their opening game of the season 31-10 against the Browns.
