KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Royals outfielder Alex Gordon told manager Ned Yost on Thursday that he was feeling better after sustaining a possible concussion the previous night against the Cleveland Indians.

Gordon was tracking a fly ball off the bat of Jason Kipnis when he got turned around near the fencing of the Royals bullpen. The Gold Glove outfielder banged into the fence and then landed hard on the warning track dirt, where he remained motionless for several minutes.

Gordon eventually walked off the field with what the team called a possible concussion and a bruised right hip. He said afterward that he didn't remember whether he lost consciousness.

Yost said before Thursday's series finale that Gordon was feeling better, but he wasn't sure whether he'll go on the seven-day concussion disabled list that was created two years ago.
