Hull City have welcomed news revealing that Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink has suffered no long-term damage.
The Dutch striker was knocked unconscious after colliding with Richard Dunne during Wednesday's 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa, with the game delayed by seven minutes as he was treated on the field before being carried off.
Vennegoor of Hesselink was immediately rushed to Hull Royal Infirmary for scans, with it feared that he may have suffered major head trauma.
However, medical tests have come back all clear and he has subsequently been released to recuperate at home.
The 31-year-old frontman will definitely sit out the Tigers' home date with Sunderland on Saturday, but could figure again before the end of the season.
Vennegoor of Hesselink is expected to return to training some time late next week, meaning he may be considered for the club's final two games of the campaign against Wigan and Liverpool.
A statement on Hull's official website read: "We are pleased to report that the scan came back all clear.
"Vennegoor of Hesselink will now be monitored daily with the hope being that he will return to full training late next week."
