NEW YORK — Center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury has what the Red Sox fear could be a significant injury to his right foot.

Ellsbury was sent back to Boston to be examined by a specialist, Dr. George Theodore, and team orthopedist Dr. Peter Asnis. According to manager John Farrell, an MRI taken Saturday morning showed swelling and inflammation.

The area of concern is a navicular bone. Ellsbury has been outfitted with a walking boot and is out indefinitely. The Sox are trying to determine whether Ellsbury has a bone bruise that can be managed, or a slight fracture.

Ellsbury traveled to Colorado Saturday afternoon and will be examined by Dr. Thomas Clanton at the Steadman Clinic in Vail on Sunday.
