Baltimore fans can breathe a collective sigh of relief, as the knee injury first baseman Chris Davis sustained in Friday's game against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim does not appear to be as severe as initially thought. Davis did some running on the field. Said everything felt good. Is wearing brace on that right knee. — Brittany Ghiroli (@Britt_Ghiroli) May 5, 2013 Davis will be back in action today for the rubber match of the Orioles-Angels series, in his customary fifth spot in the lineup. Results from the MRI performed on Davis Saturday morning revealed no severe structural damage to the right knee and was diagnosed with tendinosis of the patellar tendon. Tendinosis is a chronic condition that arises from small microtears of the tendon and the surrounding tissue that can cause degeneration and pain in the area in the absence of inflammation. Slow to mend on their own, expect Davis to continue to wear the aforementioned knee brace while also pursuing therapies such as physical therapy, nutritional supplementation (including Vitamin E), eccentric contraction exercises, as well as the occasional day off to rest the knee. Anatomically, the patellar tendon extends down from the quadricep muscles of the thigh to the tibia bone and plays a large role in the extension of the knee in activities such as running and jumping. It is also considered a ligament, as it also attaches the patella bone (commonly referred to as the 'kneecap') to the tibia. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
