The 21-year old Canadian was felled late in the contest when he collided with Fulham keeper Mark Schwarzer on the edge of the penalty area and had to be stretchered off in a neck brace but Rovers boss Steve Kean said after the match that he would be fine.
“He’s got three or four stitches on the side of his head and quite a nasty bang on his eye,” he told Sky Sports.
“Looking at it again it’s not a great challenge. He’s going to have a bit of concussion and we will see how he is but it’s not a great one.
“It could have been worse. I think he was (knocked) out for a little bit of time so he probably is concussed and that might affect the next game but the good thing is he was going for the challenge.
“That’s the most important thing (that he’s ok). He’ll get stitched up and he’ll be fine.”
Hoilett decided against taking an ambulance to hospital and instead will travel back to Blackburn with the rest of the players indicating that he is alright.
