Ryan Howard Achilles Tendon

What a heart breaker to end the season with a Phillie's loss. What may be even more of a heart breaker is that Ryan Howard may have torn his Achilles tendon. If that is the case, he may not return until August of next year. He recently had cortisone injections around the tendon prior to the playoffs. Some Dr's do not like to give this type of injection near the Achilles Tendon for fear that it may rupture the tendon. We will not know until later today if the tendon was torn. He is scheduled to undergo an MRI. Stay tuned for more info.
