The New York Daily News has more on the Joba Chamberlain injury, and while trampoline-related injuries sound like things that would be narrated by Bob Saget, this particular one was was incredibly awful.
Joba Chamberlain lost so much blood Thursday when he hurt his ankle while playing with his son that there initially was concern for his life, a Yankees' source said.
At the very least, the gruesome open dislocation of Chamberlain's right ankle could be career-threatening and probably will preclude Chamberlain from pitching for the Yankees this season.
Chamberlain underwent surgery on Friday morning to repair the ankle. The Daily News quoted a Dr. Stephen Weinfeld in the article who brought up the dreaded Joe Theismann comparison, long the standard for a gruesome, bone-revealing sports injury.
Yankees GM Brian Cashman said that he'd "like to say" it wasn't a career-ending injury, but he didn't have enough information or expertise to say for sure. Dr. Weinfeld says that the injury isn't just career-threatening, but "limb-threatening," though that's an unlikely scenario. Horrific stuff, to be sure.
