X-rays show no fracture for Falcons' Hageman

Monday - 8/4/2014, 1:38pm  ET

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) -- Falcons rookie defensive end Ra'Shede Hageman does not have a fractured wrist stemming from his fight with center Joe Hawley.

Coach Mike Smith said Monday that Hageman had X-rays but did not elaborate on the injury. Hageman left Sunday's practice after hurting his wrist. Smith has said he wants to stop the fighting during practice.

Hageman is cleared for Monday's combined practice against the Tennessee Titans.

Smith says backup offensive tackle Terren Jones was released from Northeast Georgia Medical Center on Monday night with a concussion. Jones was carted off the field and taken by ambulance to the hospital.

Jones spent most of last season on the practice squad. Smith says the second-year player is in the NFL's concussion protocol.
