New York feared for the worst when David Robertson injured his right foot while falling down the stairs, but the Yankees got some good news after further testing.

According to manager Joe Girardi the reliever has been diagnosed with a bone bruise and will be in a walking boot through the weekend, but may be able to start throwing again soon after that if he can tolerate some discomfort.

Less than 24 hours ago Girardi called Robertson’s status “cause for concern.” Today he called the news “a huge relief.”

    Probably the best possible news the Yankees and us fans could have gotten about Robertson’s injury. Now if he will just learn how to walk up and down stairs everything will be good.

      Indeed. Maybe he was chewing gum.

        it’s not the going up & down the stairs that’s his problem…. it’s the moving boxes up and down stairs. Hire a couple college kids that need some legit $$$ for their 12oz curling exercises in the evenings…..

        He didn’t “fall down the stairs”, and he wasn’t carrying heavy moving boxes. He was carrying an empty box out to the recycling bin and just missed a step and stumbled down one stair.

    He was also diagnosed with being an idiot.

    A bone bruise, you say? Dr. Francessa here in New York had it diagnosed as a pulverized appendage.
