While he has yet to meet with the specialist in North Carolina who will make that final determination, Matthews is reporting that Jeter suffered ligament damage making surgery necessary. The surgery should not affect his availability for spring training.
The stuff further down in Matthews article is what I find most interesting: the speculation that the bone bruise Jeter had already been suffering from was painful enough that it messed with his footwork, which in turn made the awkward steps which led to the broken ankle happen. It’s hard to really know the causation in play there, but it seems plausible.
