Crusaders have confirmed that prop Oli Jager has been cleared of serious neck injury following the recently concluded Super Rugby Aotearoa game against Highlanders.

The 25-year-old came off the bench in the 56th minute but was knocked out by Highlanders centre Sio Tomkinson with a off-the-ball shoulder charge nine minutes later.

Tomkinson was yellow-carded but Jager was forced off the field and was taken to the hospital following the game which was won by Crusaders with a 32-22 margin and along with it the Super Rugby Aotearoa title as well.

A statement released by the club revealed that Jager had a sore shoulder and was released from the hospital.

"Oli Jager was transferred to hospital following the game against the Highlanders," read the statement.

"He was subsequently cleared of a serious neck injury but did sustain a concussion and has a sore shoulder.

"He will be reviewed by the Crusaders medical team over the next couple of days, and he is currently at home recovering".
