Back in May, Chipper Jones spent a short time on the disabled list after he took a B.J. Upton one-hopper directly to the lower leg. The injury was described as a “left leg contusion,” which is a fancy phrase for a bruise. If you criticized Chipper at the time for missing games because of a bruise, you take it back. You take it back right now. Jones tweeted the photo you see above on Tuesday with the following caption: “Y’all remember that line drive from B.J. Upton I took off the ankle this year? Be glad I left the bandage on!!! Yuck!” Any points Chipper lost for wearing an Affliction shirt during an interview in the playoffs have officially been earned back. We have shown you some horrible leg bruises in the past, but this one is easily the most gnarly we have ever featured. Injuries like this one will likely make Chipper glad he has decided to call it a career. H/T Eye on Baseball
