Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong has helped off of the field in the eighth inning of Sunday’s game against the Cubs when he hit his head on the ground after pursuing a ball hit by Chris Valaika. He was replaced by Pete Kozma. Wong had been 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the game.

Losing Wong, even for seven days, would hurt the Cardinals’ chances of overtaking the Brewers for first place in the NL Central. Though the 23-year-old has only mustered a .249/.291/.384 slash line with nine home runs and 34 RBI, he has stolen 19 bases in 21 attempts and played solid defense at a premium position.

Update: Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Cardinals were able to rule out a concussion. Wong will be reevaluated on Monday.
