Howard Coming Back to Philly

2 Aug


Ryan Howard was with the team in Florida getting ready to face off with the Florida Marlins, but according to

Salisbury of he’s headed back to Philly to be examined by team Dr. Michael Ciccotti.

This is not good news.

Just 24 hours earlier Charlie Manuel had addressed the media saying that “He’s going to be OK. I don’t expect him to miss very much time.” 

Apparently that’s no longer the case.  If needed Howard would retroactively be placed on the teams 15 day Disabled List. He would join teammates Chase Utley and Shane Victorino who are currently riding the Phillies injury train.

Raul Ibanez, who injured his wrist on Saturday expects to be able to play by Tuesday.  As for Howard it’s just a waiting game.
