Chipper Jones Injury Update: Braves Veteran To Miss Rest Of Braves Vs. Rays Series

Atlanta Braves star veteran Chipper Jones was injured in the team's victory against the Tampa Bay Rays Friday night when ball ricocheted off his left shin in the third inning of the game.

Jones stayed in the game until a pinch hitter came in for him in the eighth inning, but the damage was done. Still, he kept it light-hearted with the media following the game.

As noted at the Talking Chop blog, the Rays should breathe a sigh of relief if this is truly Jones' last visit there. Chipper has hit .352/.400/.685 in Tampa for his career.
