So much for Ike Davis‘ speedy recovery.

The Mets just announced that he’ll wear a walking boot on his injured ankle/foot for at least the next three weeks, meaning he’s likely more than a month away from potentially returning from the disabled list.

Davis was unable to run three weeks after suffering the injury on May 10, so after getting a second opinion and an MRI exam he’s been shut down with what manager Terry Collins called an “inverted sprain.” Previously the Mets have called it a “bone bruise.”

Whatever the case, the news isn’t good and Daniel Murphy will get an extended look as the Mets’ primary first baseman.

    I read “walking boot” and got this image of the Simpsons episode where Bart had to go to Australia to be booted.

    That’s the first I’ve ever heard of an inverted sprain.

    With the Mets medical staff, we can only assume Ike has actually died, but it was misdiagnosed as an inverted sprain.

    Seriously, if I was a Met, I would have my own doctor to confirm everything! How many ‘day-to-day’s have turned into ‘out for the season’ with them? David Wright has probably already been cremated.

    Inverted ankle sprain is what 90% of all sprained ankles are. I don’t know why they decided to add the word inverted to it.
