Vidic released from hospital following concussion

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Manchester United captain Nemanja was briefly hospitalized after being concussed during Sunday's Premier League game against Arsenal.

The Serbian defender left the field shortly before halftime of the 1-0 victory after colliding with United goalkeeper David de Gea. Vidic was sent to a hospital for examination, and United said Monday that the player had been released the previous evening.

Vidic is not due to play again until Nov. 24 when United plays Cardiff.
