Matt Hoffman took a line drive off his right knee during Sunday's spring game against the Braves.

Hoffman was sporting a nasty bruise on Monday morning but shouldn't be sidetracked whatsoever by the minor incident. The 23-year-old left-hander is trying to win a spot in the Tigers' Opening Day bullpen this spring.
