A fourth examination of Chuck Finley's left foot Wednesday ruled out the possibility of a stress fracture, which means the Angel pitcher may resume throwing off the mound as early as next week. Finley, placed on the 15-day disabled list last Thursday after a bone scan of his foot failed to conclusively indicate a stress fracture, underwent further X-rays Wednesday by the Angel physician, Dr. Lewis Yocum, at Centinela Hospital Medical Center in Inglewood.

Vitamin D may be helpful in protecting highly active pre-teen and teen girls, such as those who play sports, from stress fractures, researchers reported Monday. The study was surprising because calcium has long been considered the nutrient most vital to bone health in children. But, in developing children, vitamin D intake may matter more. Researchers analyzed data from 6,721 girls ages 9 to 15 at the start of the study. The girls' intake of calcium, vitamin D and dairy products was recorded along with stress fractures, which are common sports-related injuries.

But after being examined Nov. 11 by Dr. Philip Kwong, a foot-and-ankle specialist, Trumbo was told to rest the foot for at least another month.

A series of tests Monday revealed a stress fracture of the navicular bone in the right foot of the rookie first baseman, an injury that will not require surgery but will keep Trumbo out of the lineup for the last games of the season. "Of course I'm disappointed, but it's one of those things," said Trumbo, who arrived at Angel Stadium as his teammates took the field for batting practice before Monday night's game against Texas.

Lakers rookie Devin Ebanks will miss at least three weeks with what the team called a stress fracture in his left tibia. It was the chair that ate Devin Ebanks .

He felt pain in his lower left leg but pushed through it, continuing to play in games and take part in practices. But his leg took a turn for the worse Thursday, and he was limping badly at practice.

Brett Favre missed his second straight day of practice for the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday, but he walked around the team's facility without the oversized boot that had been protecting an injury that is putting his league-record streak of 291 consecutive starts streak in jeopardy. The 41-year-old quarterback limped through the locker room with a heavy wrap on his ankle, which was injured in a loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night. Asked if he thought he could play against New England, Favre said, "I wouldn't put anything past me, to be honest with you. " Favre has a stress fracture in the ankle as well as an avulsion fracture in the heel bone, where a fragment has been torn away by a tendon or ligament.
