Matt Kemp injury: Dodgers' CF leaves game after crashing into wall (VIDEO)

Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp left his team's game against the Colorado Rockies in the first inning after slamming straight into the outfield wall while chasing a Josh Rutledge triple.

MLB.com has the video:

Incredibly, Kemp stayed in the game for two more batters -- he had to dive for a bloop double by Jordan Pacheco and then field a single by Wilin Rosario -- before he was removed.

ESPN's Buster Olney tweeted that Kemp's neck seemed to be at issue.

Shane Victorino moved over from leftfield to replace Kemp in center, with Juan Rivera coming in to play left and slotting into the three-hole in the batting order.

UPDATE: Here's the official word from the Dodgers. Looks as if the neck is not a problem:
