Matt Kemp Injury: Kemp Expected To Miss At Least One Game

Los Angeles Dodges outfielder Matt Kemp is expected to miss at least one game after he left Tuesday's game in the first inning following a collision with the center field wall.

Kemp suffered a right knee contusion and a jaw injury, but he did not have concussion-like symptoms. He is expected to undergo an MRI on his knee and a CAT scan on his jaw Monday night. Those tests will determine how severe the injuries are and whether or not Kemp will miss significant time.

Neither injury appeared to be significant and while Kemp may be out Wednesday, he will likely be considered day-to-day and could be back in the lineup before the weekend.
