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.

As per usual with the Washington Nationals, 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.
