From Mark Hale:There is a major question about Derek Jeter’s health right now. In the third inning of the Yankees’ 3-2, 12-inning victory over the Orioles last night, Jeter, who has been battling a late season, left-ankle bone bruise, fouled a ball off his left foot. Jeter was badly limping and hobbling during the game, an alarming development. It became more alarming for the Yankees as he exited the game for defense before the ninth inning. Jeter was replaced by Jayson Nix, and there’s a chance the Yankees will have to use Nix at shortstop tonight while using Jeter as DH. After the game, manager Joe Girardi said he wasn’t sure if Jeter will play tonight.Girardi also mentioned in the post game that it's a bone bruise on the top of his foot that he got by fouling a ball off his foot early in game 3. He's day-to-day, but Jeter, as always, played the injury down and said he expects to play on Thursday. Here's Jeter's post game: Your browser does not support iframes.
