John Hickey, who covers the A's for the Bay Area News Group, tweeted the following confirming Crisp's status for yesterday's game.
Coco Crisp gets day off; neck problem still an issue. #AthleticsCrisp suffered the injury nearly a month ago in the game against the Seattle Mariners, as our own Raymond Bureau reported. Crisp crashed into the wall while making a sensational running catch. He stayed on the ground for over five minutes according to MLB.com's Jane Lee, but he then walked off the field on his own power. Since returning to the lineup, Crisp has played in 17 straight games before missing yesterday's game.
