Jozy Altidore has a bruised back for his trouble, but the U.S. men's national team striker is not expected to miss much time after being given the all-clear following the nasty crash into a video board during a match on Wednesday.

Altidore left AZ Alkmaar's match against NEC Breda after being pushed into a hard surface near the edge of the playing field. He avoided any head injuries, but did come away with a back bruise.

Altidore has already tweeted out that he should be fine, and any concerns about Altidore potentially missing time with the U.S. national team have been put to rest.

Here is the video of the incident (at the 1:12 mark).
