CHICAGO -- Ten days after suffering a concussion on what became Jay Bruce's inside-the-park homer, Jason Bay has been cleared to begin physical activity.

Bay initially will ride a stationary bicycle to ensure concussion symptoms do not resurface. He should be involved in baseball activities by the weekend, Terry Collins said.

“The first few days I kind of felt a little groggy, a little headache and stuff,” Bay said Saturday about the aftereffects of the June 15 contact with the left-field wall. “But over the last probably two, three days, I feel astronomically better.”
