NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Vanderbilt's Jordan Matthews says he's just fine and he never had any concussion symptoms.

The received said Tuesday that he vomited in last week's season opener because he had been hit in the stomach.

Cameras showed Matthews being ill late in the game, leading to questions whether he suffered a concussion when hit hard by Ole Miss safety Cody Prewitt.

Matthews says people thought he went back into the game too fast, but that he wasn't going to let a little “throw-up” sideline him. The senior had 10 catches for a career-high 178 yards.

Vanderbilt coach James Franklin says concussions have been a hot topic all year and that medical staff decide whether a player returns.
