Graeme Swann has suffered no fracture to his bowling arm and is expected to return to the field later in England’s warm-up match against Essex at Chelmsford.
Northampton-born Swann was hit on his right forearm by Tymal Mills while batting on the second morning in England’s first-innings 413 for nine declared.
England’s frontline off-spinner continued his innings but then did not take the field during Essex’s reply and was instead sent to hospital for an X-ray.
The ECB have announced, however, that Swann was not seriously injured.
A spokesman said: “(The) X-ray showed no fracture. He is continuing to receive treatment for bruising and will return to the field later in the game.”
