The 30-year-old was knocked out in a sickening collision with Hawthorn’s Ryan Burton on Sunday, just hours after his wife gave birth to their first child.

A motionless Higgins was taken from Etihad Stadium on a motorised stretcher after a nasty head clash during the third quarter of the 28-point win.

But he was coherent and in good spirits after the incident and was transported to Epworth Hospital.

He underwent cosmetic surgery to repair facial damage and was released on Monday afternoon.

“Shaun Higgins has had successful surgery to repair his lip and is now resting happily with his wife and baby girl,” Roos communications chief Heath O’Loughlin tweeted.

Ed Vickers-Willis was also concussed in a third-quarter collision, but was able to jog from the field.

The pair will go into the club’s concussion protocol and haven’t been ruled out of Saturday’s clash against Port Adelaide.

Burton was found to have no case to answer for his part in the collision by AFL match review officer Michael Christian.

“Contact was made from Burton’s shoulder to the chest of Higgins,” Christian said.

“I think it’s really important to understand that he took reasonable care to execute the bump fairly.

“He couldn’t reasonably foresee that there was going to be an accidental clash of heads.

“It was unfortunate for Higgins, but I just want to emphasise that when we’re assessing incidents we look at the conduct first and foremost.”

Speaking before the verdict was announced, North skipper Jack Ziebell harboured no ill will toward Burton.

“It’s a tough one … I’ve been in that situation before where you have to choose to bump or tackle,” Ziebell said.

“It’s a split-second decision and it’s a really tough one to make.

“I’m not going to sit here and judge anyone on that one act.”
