BREAKING NEWS: Ellsbury dancing days are over?

The news was not good today.

Jacoby Ellsbury injured his right foot stealing second base on Thursday, but appeared Saturday with a boot on it to immobilize the foot after an examination by Dr. George Theodore and Dr. Peter Asnis. They took an MRI and found "...swelling and inflammation in there to the point where he's been put in a boot."

The news broke online and could mean something really bad has been found, more than the original 'bone bruise' that was announced this week.

As if this news was not bad enough, our leadoff hitter is going for second opinions, which does not bode well for his future this year as the Red Sox make a postseason run.

It will be awhile before we see Ellsbury dancing around Fenway.

The question is, will he make it back to help the Red Sox down the road and on into the playoffs?
