Jacoby Ellsbury Re-Injures Ribs In Loss To Rangers

Adding literal injury to insult in Friday nights brutal Red Sox' loss to the Rangers, outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury re-injured his ribs and will go to Boston to have an MRI taken on Saturday.

Ellsbury, leading off in the game's first at-bat, ran into Rangers pitcher Tommy Hunter at first base and fell to the ground, landing on the same spot where he had five broken ribs earlier this season. He stayed in the game, but eventually was pulled in the bottom of the fourth.

After the game, Terry Francona did little to calm the fears of Red Sox fans.

"It's very concerning. The exam that [trainer Mike Reinold] gave him is very concerning. So we'll get him looked at as quickly as we can so we can make a decision going forward.''
