Jimmy Rollins is sitting out tonight's game with a foot injury

Jul 27, 2010, 4:15 PM EDT

Jimmy Rollins is out of the Phillies’ lineup tonight after limping through yesterday’s game and while X-rays came back negative on his bruised foot David Murphy of the Philadelphia Daily News reports that “someone who saw Jimmy Rollins today said he came in on crutches.”
On the other hand, Ryan Lawrence of the Delaware County Daily Times reported later that Rollins was “not on crutches” when he walked into the clubhouse. So … who knows.
It’s certainly possible he showed up to the ballpark on crutches and then ditched them before going in front of reporters, just as it’s possible doctors told him to use the crutches for a while even if the injury is relatively minor.
Either way, he has a foot injury and Wilson Valdez is starting at shortstop tonight.
UPDATE: Todd Zolecki of MLB.com chimes in: Jimmy Rollins is limping badly, but said he did not arrive to the ballpark on crutches. “Segway,” he said.

    I hope it’s nothing serious. The well-oiled machine was just starting to rev again. 2 back in the loss column in the Wild Card race. Phillies need to take Wild Card lead, and get it up to 2-3 games to take off pressure. Then gear up to catch the cowards.
