St. Louis Rams right tackle Barry Richardson was cleared of a concussion after leaving the game against the New England Patriots.

Richardson was hurt in the fourth quarter and was cleared to return to Sunday's game.

Earlier, St. Louis receiver Chris Givens left the game with a toe injury but later returned.

The rookie caught a 50-yard touchdown pass from Sam Bradford early in the game to put the Rams ahead 7-0, but limped off later in the first quarter.

New England cornerback Kyle Arrington also left the game in the first quarter with what was described as a head injury, and Rams tight end Lance Kendricks left the game with cramps.
