Rangers shortstop Jurickson Profar exits vs. Rays, in concussion protocol

Injuries continue to plague the Texas Rangers, who have seen many players sent to the disabled list early in the season.

The latest player to be bitten by the injury bug was shortstop Jurickson Profar, who exited Monday night's game against the Tampa Bay Rays in the second inning.

Profar collided with Rays center fielder Mallex Smith as Smith slid into second base. Profar is in the concussion protocol and will be re-evaluated on Tuesday.

Rangers medical staff tended to Profar before the shortstop left the field. He was replaced by Drew Robinson.

Texas has lost starters Delino DeShields, Rougned Odor, Elvis Andrus and Doug Fister to the DL with different injuries.
