NIH: Francieboy sidelines NJ, claims accident

The only reason I believe that Jeff Francouer ran into Nick Johnson accidentally is that it's too risky of a proposition to do something like that on purpose. Though it did look like shoulder-to-face contact, which would have been slightly better news for the Braves right fielder who has given us such fits with his bat since joining Atlanta. Guess he wasn't satisfied with just beating us with his hitting, he wanted to show off his tackling skills.

Anyway, the result is that Johnson is day-to-day with a left cervical strain. This is somethign akin to whiplash, which is never a good thing. He could be back today, he could be back in a week, he could need longer. I'll be keeping an eye out for news on his recovery.
