Jaguars' Beachum released from hospital after concussion
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Jacksonville Jaguars left tackle Kelvin Beachum has been released from a hospital in San Diego and is on his way home.
Beachum sustained a concussion in the third quarter of Sunday's 38-14 loss to the Chargers. He was strapped to a backboard, carted off the field and taken to a local hospital, where he stayed overnight for observation.
The team says Beachum has been placed in the NFL's concussion protocol.
Coach Gus Bradley says he spoke to Beachum and ''he feels good and is excited to get back here.'' Bradley says he has not decided what he would do if Beachum can't play against Baltimore on Sunday. Guard Luke Joeckel likely would move back to left tackle, and either Tyler Shatley or Chris Reed would move into the starting lineup.
