Dustin Pedroia fouled a ball off of his left foot on Friday night, leaving the game with a limp and a walking boot. Initial xrays did not show a break, but later studies showed a break or fracture of the navicular bone of the foot. The good news is that the fracture is non-displaced (did not shift), but the bad news is the fact that this bone, the navicular broke.
