WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

The Detroit Tigers placed former Laney standout Jeff Ferrell in the Major League Baseball concussion protocol on Tuesday.

The decision came a day after Ferrell was hit in the back of the head by a line drive hit by Oakland’s Ryon Healy on Monday.

“I don’t remember it, honestly,” Ferrell said. “I knew what was going on. It’s just I was a little foggy at that point. Once I kind of stopped and kneeled down and tried to gather my thoughts, I thought about what was going on.”

A CT scan taken at the hospital Monday came back clean. There is a bruise behind his right ear.

“That area is real sore,” he said. “The swelling has gone down a lot. Hopefully, it continues to get better.”

Ferrell said he had never been hit in the head before.
