Plenty of Contusion On This Issue

I don't know about you, but a big red flag went up when I heard the Red Sox medical prognosis on Jacoby Ellsbury's back. One press report went as follows:

"The injury was diagnosed as a contusion and is not expected to be a lingering issue."

Back on May 27th, 2010, Ellsbury told reporters this about his rib injury of that year:

"I think they downplay it because they misdiagnosed it. They said you treat it all the same way. Remember that comment? How do you treat a bruise the same as a break?”

Calling Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard.
