Nagy and Vyner updates

Ádám Nagy and Zak Vyner will go through return to play concussion protocols after suffering head injuries against Queens Park Rangers.

Manager Nigel Pearson has confirmed that "no risks" will be taken with the health of the two players and that they will undergo the six-day Football Association Graduated Return to Play Protocols for players in an Enhanced Care setting.

Nagy was released from hospital on Sunday (March 7th) after an overnight stay for observation while Vyner was monitored at home after treatment at Ashton Gate Stadium.

“I have spoken to both of them and they are feeling okay,” said Pearson. “It’s important that we go through the correct protocols and we do not take any risks with their health. We’ll assess all the medical information and then make the right decision for the player first and then the team.”

Pearson and his coaching staff will attend tomorrow’s Under-23s match against QPR (1pm KO) which will see Nathan Baker, Callum O’Dowda, Liam Walsh and Marley Watkins returning from injury.

“I’m looking forward to seeing them all play,” added Pearson. “With the last two results, people may feel there is an added pressure to rush these players back but my message is very clear – we want them back but only if they can stay back and not suffer any injury recurrence.”
