    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) was released from the hospital Monday afternoon and is recovering from a concussion.

    Communications Director David Popp said in a statement that McConnell’s medical team discovered he suffered a “minor rib fracture” after his fall at a D.C. hotel last week, for which he’s also receiving treatment. But the Kentucky Republican’s concussion recovery was “proceeding well.”


    “At the advice of his physician, the next step will be a period of physical therapy at an inpatient rehabilitation facility before he returns home,” Popp said.

    The statement did not disclose when McConnell will return to the Senate.

    McConnell was taken to the hospital last week after falling at a dinner for the Senate Leadership Fund, a Super PAC he is closely aligned. (RELATED: Mitch McConnell’s Office Provides Update Following Hospitalization)

    “Leader McConnell tripped at a dinner event Wednesday evening and has been admitted to the hospital and is being treated for a concussion. He is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days of observation and treatment,” his office announced last Thursday.
