Yankees' Robertson: Foot better, tests precaution

RONALD BLUM AP Sports Writer Published:

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- David Robertson says his injured foot is feeling better and a second round of tests was a precaution to ensure there wasn't significant damage.

Robertson limped into the Yankees clubhouse Friday, still using crutches and wearing a large protective boot on his right foot. The All-Star reliever stumbled on the stairs of his St. Petersburg home on Wednesday night while carrying boxes for recycling, sustaining what the Yankees have termed a mid-foot sprain.

The second round of tests Thursday was sent to doctors in New York for evaluation. Robertson had not heard back.

Robertson says he was told the first MRI "looked fine" but the doctors also said "let's just go ahead and check it out and make sure that nothing's wrong."
