ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -Denver Broncos linebacker Warrick Holdman was released from the hospital Friday, 24 hours after being treated for a spinal cord concussion following a collision with a teammate at training camp.
``He did have some numbness this morning but not a lot,'' coach Mike Shanahan said.
The Broncos didn't say when Holdman, who spent the night at Sky Ridge Medical Center, would be able to practice again.
Holdman was injured Thursday when he tried to tackle running back Mike Bell, who lowered his left shoulder and struck the 243-pound linebacker in the crown of his helmet. Holdman crumpled to the grass and temporarily lost feeling in his extremities, although he could move his arms and legs by the time he was taken off the field to a waiting ambulance.
Holdman is a ninth-year pro in his first season in Denver after spending the last two years in Washington. He is among several veterans vying for the starting job at strong side linebacker.
D.J. Williams was the ``Sam'' linebacker last season, but moved to the middle when team captain Al Wilson, the Broncos' leading tackler, was waived for health and salary cap concerns.
Wilson injured his neck in a game against Seattle last December and failed a physical this spring that nixed a trade to the New York Giants before his release.
Holdman's injury was reminiscent of Wilson's, in part because he wears Wilson's old No. 56.
