England batsman Jason Roy has passed a concussion test after being hit in the nets ahead of the third Ashes contest at Headingley.

The 29-year-old was struck by a throw-down from former international Marcus Trescothick, who is working with the team in a temporary capacity, during practice on Tuesday.

Roy was assessed after impact and was able to continue batting, but also required a follow-up check on the eve of the match to determine any delayed symptoms.
