[UPDATED 1:50 a.m.}

Bryce Harper left the Nationals' game on Monday night after colliding with the wall in right-center field at Dodger Stadium. He was examined by Washington's medical staff and determined to not have a concussion, but did need 11 stitches under his chin.

Harper stumbled down near the warning track and laid on the ground for several moments as teammates and medical personnel rushed to his aid. He eventually got up and left the field on his own, but was bleeding down his neck. He was replaced by Roger Bernadina and went to the locker room for medical attention.

Harper was 1-for-1 in the game with two runs and two walks. He is hitting .303 on the season with ten homers, 21 RBI, and 24 runs.
