SYDNEY, Sept 29 AAP - Danny Buderus has been released from hospital after scans cleared the retiring Newcastle hooker of any serious head or neck injuries.

Playing what would prove to be his 257th and final game in the NRL, Buderus was taken from the field just 17 minutes into Saturday night's preliminary final loss to Sydney Roosters after being knocked unconscious attempting to tackle Roosters prop Jared Waerea-Hargreaves.

The 35-year-old was rushed to hospital and kept there overnight as a precaution.

He was discharged on Sunday to return home.

A statement on the Knights website confirmed there were still some concerns over Buderus' lower back, the former NSW and Test representative having undergone two back operations earlier this year.

"No one wants to finish their career this way but I have been fortunate to play the game I love for this long and for us to finish in the top four this season," Buderus said.

"Thank you to everyone for their well wishes and support, not just last night but throughout my career.

"I love this club and have said on a number of occasions I am forever indebted to it."
