The Spain international spent the night in hospital after falling heavily in an aerial battle with Alex Bergantinos.
And the club confirmed that scans showed he has “no traumatic alterations or injuries” and will need to rest for 48 hours.
Afterwards, the 32-year-old was reported to have said: “Thank you all for caring for me. It was only a scare.”
When the former Liverpool and Chelsea striker sustained the injury, players from both teams immediately rushed to him and called for medical help.
He was then assisted for some minutes by doctors before being taken off on a stretcher and transferred to a hospital.
