Toronto Blue Jays starter Brandon Morrow left Wednesday night's game in the seventh inning after taking a line drive off of his right leg against the Baltimore Orioles.

He was unable to put any weight on his right leg and needed assistance to make it off of the field.

FOX Sport's Jon Morosi submitted a tweet on Wednesday night that should help to ease the minds of Jays fans worried about their young ace:

The fact that the X-rays were only precautionary and that he is listed as just day-to-day leads us to believe that there is nothing severely wrong with his shin and that he should be in line to make his next scheduled start.

He was pitching well yet again prior to suffering what has been diagnosed as a right shin contusion, allowing just one run over 6.1 innings while striking out eight Orioles.

He lowered his ERA to 3.28 in the victory.

We'll look to see how much this injury affects him in his next start, but all signs point to him being just fine.
