Allen Craig met with the media on Friday to discuss his sprained left foot that is keeping him out of the lineup. Craig was grateful that his foot was not broken when he reached on an infield single and twisted his left foot while trying to avoid running into first base umpire Laz Diaz in Cincinnati. Craig will have his foot looked at early next week and hopes to resume playing as soon as the swelling in his foot goes down and the pain subsides. Manager Mike Matheny comments on other doctors coming in next week to look at Craig's injury and hoping to speed up the healing process.
