Braves' Hanson back in camp, bruised but better

Posted: Updated:

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - Atlanta Braves pitcher Tommy Hanson is back in camp after his concussion from a car wreck.

Hanson said Thursday his headache is gone, but he's still sore and bruised. The one-car accident happened while he was on the way to the first workout for pitchers and catchers. He hopes to be back on the field within a week and says he doesn't expect the layoff to hamper his preparations for the season.

The right-hander was injured Monday when a tire blew, sending his car careening down an embankment. He's still a bit fuzzy about the details but says he may have hit his head on the roof of the vehicle. He was wearing his seatbelt, which left him with a bruise on his nonthrowing shoulder.
