CHICAGO -- Don't look for center fielder Alex Rios to start in the final series of the 2011 season against the Blue Jays, after suffering concussion-like symptoms when crashing into the U.S. Cellular Field outfield wall on Sunday to rob Kansas City's Billy Butler of an extra-base hit.

"There are some symptoms and I don't think there's a major concussion. That's what the doctor said," Rios said. "I thought I had a little room to work with the fence, but obviously I didn't and it got me pretty good."

Rios missed the padding on the post in right-center and caught the fence with the bill of his cap, his face and his knee. He isn't suffering from any headaches associated with the crash.

"It feels like it's sore," Rios said. "It feels like somebody shook my head real hard, but that's it."
