Weaver out 4-6 weeks with fractured elbow
By Stephania Bell
When initial X-rays came back negative on Los Angeles Angels ace Jered Weaver's left elbow Sunday night, we still prepared for the possibility that he could miss a start. It turns out he will miss several.
Weaver's awkward landing on his left forearm when he fell while dodging a line drive did in fact result in a fracture. Weaver suffered a non-displaced fracture of the radial head. These fractures are often difficult to see on an X-ray, and it was not until Weaver underwent further imaging tests that the severity of the injury was discovered.
