Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, who left Saturday's win at Kentucky after a second-half blow to the head, suffered a concussion.

Here's the official release from Florida's sports information department.

Gainesville, Fla. -- University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow was released from University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center Sunday morning after being held overnight for precautionary reasons.

"Tim is doing fine this morning," said head coach Urban Meyer. "His CT scans came back and indicated that Tim suffered a concussion. Our medical and athletic training staff will continue to monitor him to determine how much rest and recovery he needs. We will have additional information and updates this week."

Top-ranked Florida has a bye this week. The Gators' next game is Oct. 10 at Louisiana State.
