(8/31/2014) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong underwent a series of tests that ruled out a possible concussion, MLB.com reports. Wong hits his head awkwardly on the turf while in pursuit of a pop fly in the eighth inning against the Cubs. His status remains up in the air for Monday's home against Pittsburgh.

"He went through a bunch of tests already," manager Mike Matheny said. "The doctors got to him. There were no signs of concussion. We've had a couple different doctors look at him already. I'm sure tomorrow he'll be a little sore. We'll probably bring the doctors back in tomorrow and re-evaluate. We got good news on the initial report."
