Atlanta Braves pitcher Tommy Hanson suffered a concussion after his Infiniti M45 blew out a tire and was wrecked last Monday, but may be ready to get back to full workouts Tuesday, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Hanson ran a little bit and spent about five minutes playing catch Sunday, the first time the Braves pitcher suited up and got on the field since suffering the Grade 1 concussion, the paper reports.

Hanson will likely take the concussion tests on Monday or Tuesday, manager Fredi Gonzalez said, according to the paper, marking Hanson's second time taking it since the accident. If everything checks out, he could be involved in full workouts on Tuesday, the Journal-Constitution notes.

"It's like holding a thoroughbred back, he's ready to get going," Gonzalez said, the paper reports. "Which is a good sign."

The 25-year-old went 11-7 with a 3.60 ERA last year.
