Fox News reported that the press release, which was read during a conference after the crash, mentioned the lack of any internal organ damage or broken bones.
The unfortunate crash had occurred after the race car driver got sent into a wall and then hit in the driver-side door by another car.
He had subsequently become trapped in his upside-down Ford while rescue workers tried to free him.
Until Ryan's return to the competition, Ross Chastain, who made his debut in the No. 6 Ford Mustang is expected to fill his place.
Ryan's time away from the sport has brought his streak of 659 consecutive starts since 2002, to a halt.
