Brighton striker Glenn Murray has been discharged from hospital after being knocked unconscious during his team's Premier League victory at Newcastle.
Murray underwent extensive treatment on the pitch at St James' Park after a clash of heads with defender Federico Fernandez, with worried team-mates immediately signalling for medics to come to his aid.
Seagulls boss Chris Hughton revealed after the game that the 35-year-old had been released from hospital following checks.
Hughton said: "He's okay. He's been discharged from hospital. As most saw, he was out and so what will happen is now, of course, we will do the appropriate things this week.
"But he's had everything that he's needed to have, the correct quick scans and so on, and everything is fine so it will just be a question now of recovering, but he'll obviously be sore for a while.
"From where we are, we had no idea. We knew what had happened, that there had been a collision, but we had no idea of any other details. But when you see the players as distressed as they were, then it makes you even a little bit more concerned."
Brighton scored the only goal of the game after 29 minutes when Beram Kayal deflected in Jose Izquierdo's goalbound effort.
Murray joined Brighton in July 2016 from Bournemouth. He started his career with Carlisle and has also played for Crystal Palace and Reading.
