Linebacker Rolando McClain went through concussion protocol after Sunday’s game after being kicked in the head early in the fourth quarter by teammate Jeff Heath.

It happened on an 11-yard passing play from Aaron Rodgers to Randall Cobb, and McClain was visibly shaken up on the play. He vomited while surrounded by the team’s medical staff.

But McClain passed the concussion test on the sideline and returned four plays later – on a 30-yard touchdown run by James Starks. McClain said his injury had nothing to do with the Cowboys giving up the touchdown run.

During the game, McClain said he felt fine. But things worsened after the game.

“I have stronger symptoms right now,” said McClain, who had two concussions last season in playoff games against the Lions and Packers and knows of one other in his career.
