SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- San Francisco Giants shortstop Miguel Tejada has left Monday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers with a possible groin injury.

Tejada had attempted to field Rafael Furcal's sharp grounder in the third inning, but bobbled it for an error then slid to the turf.

A team trainer came out to check on Tejada, as did San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy, before the three walked off the field together.

Tejada, who was replaced by rookie Brandon Crawford, struck out in his only at-bat against the Dodgers' Chad Billingsley.
