Puig walked off field -- eventually -- leaning heavily on #Dodgers trainer Stan Conte. Replay draws “Ooohs” from #Marlins crowd — Bill Plunkett (@billplunkettocr) May 4, 2014

Mattingly said Puig was “pointing to multiple areas” when asked where it hurt. Including head. Sounds like possible concussion. #Dodgers

The Dodgers will run him through a range of tests before announcing an official diagnosis. Puig was 1-for-4 with a walk and a run scored in the 5-4 loss and he’s batting .309/.397/.500 on the season.
UPDATE, 5:05 p.m. ET: And now comes good news from Plunkett ...

#Dodgers say Puig was given a concussion test. Results negative. Will be monitored. Status day to day. Also hit lower left leg on wall.
