By report Bryce Harper sustained a bone bruise without any ligament damage. Good news, but recovery may still take time. Read our report on isolated bone bruise recovery which was the first study analyzing this in the medical literature. See it HERE. We showed average time to full activity was 3.1 months so reports the team feels he may miss the rest of the regular season are probably accurate.
