From the FOX video, it appears that Morales landed awkwardly on his left ankle. The ankle was later placed in an aircast and Morales was carted off the field.
The ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER reports on Morales’ condition:
… and five minutes later he was carted off the field because of a broken left leg.
Surgery will be required to repair the fracture and will be performed by Dr. Phil Kwong, a foot and ankle specialist at the Kerlan-Jobe Clinic, on Sunday in Los Angeles.
It is too early to set a return date for Morales, but the recovery is likely to take months, not weeks and Morales could miss the remainder of the 2010 season.
