Shane Victorino emerged relatively unharmed from his collision with the bullpen wall Sunday, according to the Boston Herald.

The Herald's John Tomase, quoting a major league source, reported Monday that Victorino -- who was on the ground for several minutes after crashing into the fence while chasing a home-run ball by Toronto's Emilio Bonifacio in the fourth inning, and came out of the game in the sixth -- "did not suffer any damage to his back or ribs" in the incident. He was examined at Massachusetts General Hospital after the game.

Victorino, however, is still sore and may not play Tuesday when the Sox open a nine-game road trip with a game at Tampa Bay.
