Bryce Harper Carried Off Field After Suffering Left Knee Injury Vs. Giants

However, general manager Mike Rizzo announced Sunday that Harper had no ligament or tendon damage, but a bone bruise, leaving the team optimistic of a return in the regular season.
Washington is a head-turning 14.5 games ahead of the Miami Marlins in the National League East and appears comfortably on its way to the postseason. While running out a ground ball to the right side of the infield, Harper avoided contract with first baseman Ryder Jones before his left foot slipped on the base.
BASEBALL star Bryce Harper WILL play again this season after he escaped with just a bruised bone following his horrific knee scare.

"He's definitely one of those guys that you can't replace on a team". Given injuries to Harper, Stephen Strasburg - who has a rehab assignment Monday - and others, the Nationals' focus is getting healthy for the playoffs. "I think it's best that he doesn't start", Baker said Thursday.
As per usual with the WashingtonNationals, no injury news is usually given until after the game and its unlikely we will know the full diagnosis until some point during the doubleheader tomorrow. Should the knee injury necessitate a trip to the disabled list, it'll be his first stint on the DL since undergoing thumb surgery in 2014.
