Cubs News: Kris Bryant injury update


by - Senior Writer -

SAN FRANCISCO — During Wednesday's contest at Oracle Park between the Chicago Cubs and the San Francisco Giants, Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant departed due to soreness that he felt in his right knee. Bryant was caught on camera wincing in pain after striking out swinging in the top of the fifth, and he was subsequently removed from the game.

The Cubs revealed soon afterward that the cause of Bryant's departure was right-knee soreness, and, following the game, Bryant elaborated to reporters, saying that it was lingering soreness that he has been dealing with since the All-Star break. Furthermore, Bryant told the media that a mishap suffered during batting practice on Wednesday, which involved Bryant getting his cleat stuck in a turf mat, exacerbated the soreness.

Thankfully, the injury is not expected to be a long-term issue, as Bryant stated that he underwent helpful treatment after being taken out of the game and expects to play in the Cubs' next game on Friday. Telling the press that he is not at all concerned by the knee issue, Bryant expressed confidence that he would totally fine and ready to go by Friday.
