Chris Rogers cleared of serious injury after ball blow

CHRIS Rogers has been cleared of any serious damage and could still feature in next week's third Ashes Test at Edgbaston.

Rogers, who was struck on the head by James Anderson in the first innings at Lord's, retired in his second innings after dizzy spells.

The opener had also been struck by a bowler in the nets and forced to miss two Tests in the West Indies.

Australian team doctor Peter Brukner said the dizziness was likely to be due to a delayed ear problem following the blow from Anderson.

Rogers (pictured) was not due to play in the tour match at Derbyshire starting tomorrow night, with Brukner adding: "Chris's condition is certainly improving. The initial scans have cleared him of any serious damage and we await the results of further tests."

Mitchell Johnson, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Steve Smith will also remain in London before rejoining the touring party.
