Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall revealed that Owen Farrell is 'fine' after a worrying-looking head injury led to the England fly-half bering stretchered off the field during the 49-10 victory over Leicester.
Farrell was carried off in the 67th minute with his neck in a brace after his head accidentally connected with the hip of Vereniki Goneva while making a tackle.
The 22-year-old was unconscious before hitting the ground and 10 minutes elapsed before he was carried from the pitch having kicked three penalties and two conversions in a fine performance.
"Owen has a bang on the head and will go through the normal protocols, but is fine," McCall said.
"We're really pleased with the performance in both halves. Overall every area of our game was very good."
Saracens' bonus-point victory produced two tries for Chris Ashton, one each for Jack Wilson, Billy Vunipola and Jackson Wray and a penalty try.
It kept the London club three points clear at the summit of the Aviva Premiership.
Despite leaking six tries in a club-record Premiership defeat, Leicester director of rugby Richard Cockerill viewed the 40th-minute sin-binning of Graham Kitchener for a spear-tackle on Farrell when the Leicester trailed only 13-10 as pivotal.
"I don't know why he was in the bin. He's committed to the tackle, he hits the guy and he lands on his back," Cockerill said.
"It's a penalty at worse so why's he in the bin? We conceded 15 points during that period.
"The yellow card was key because we were still in the game at that point. I'm not blaming (referee) Wayne Barnes because that's what he's told to do.
"But if that's a yellow card the lawmakers are kidding themselves. The game's soft. The lawmakers are having a laugh. It's a joke.
"Saracens played very well, they deserved to win and their power was key for them and we couldn't cope with it. We weren't good enough."
