    I wonder if he will make it back. I broke my ankle last September (2011), and I'm just now getting to the point where it's not affecting my movement. I don't know how serious his break is (mine was pretty bad), but ankles are notoriously slow in healing, and he isn't that much younger than I am.

    I remember wincing when I saw it happen, and wondering if his career was over.

    They said he will be back in 3 months, but he basically has a solid 5-6 months before he needs to even be close to 100% He will be back, and also he is a professional athlete (and a remarkably healthy one at that!) who has top dollar trainers with him at all times, better then any of us can afford/get when we are injured

    I agree though, the injury at the time did look a lot worse (I thought ACL or Achillies tear off the bat)

    I'm guessing Jeter will be back next year for a farewell tour/final shot at glory. But that will probably be it for him, Rivera and Petitte, and the Yankees will truly be facing the dawn of a new era.
