Kansas City Royals outfielder Alex Gordon managed to get a bloody nose on Thursday, even though Game 6 of the ALCS against the Toronto Blue Jays isn't until Friday.

However, and fortunately for K.C., manager Ned Yost said it's no big deal (quote shared to Twitter by ESPN's Marly Rivera):

Obviously, it'd take quite a lot more than a bloodied nose to prevent Gordon from playing in Game 6 on Friday, when the Royals have a chance to punch their ticket to a World Series matchup with the New York Mets.
