Wil Myers may miss 2-6 weeks
An MRI showed bruising and swelling, according to the Tampa Tribune, but doctors are still checking for the possibility of a small fracture. Myers could be out anywhere from two to six weeks, depending on the severity of the injury.
"It could be not so bad, it could be worse," manager Joe Maddon told reporters. "We just have to wait for the doctor to tell us."
Maddon says surgery has not been mentioned at all.
"I'm not hearing surgery," Maddon said. "I haven't heard that word at all. Just length of rehab seems to be the prominent concern or the discussion."
Myers, the American League Rookie of the Year in 2013, has struggled this season, batting .227 with five home runs and 25 RBIs in just 53 games.
