ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Denver Broncos linebacker Warrick Holdman was released from the hospital today, 24 hours after he was treated for a spinal cord concussion.

Coach Mike Shanahan said Holdman had some numbness this morning but not a lot.

The team didn't say when Holdman would be able to practice again.

Holdman was injured yesterday when he tried to tackle running back Mike Bell.

Bell 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 had movement in 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 to start at strong side linebacker.
