Finally, some good news for the Braves. Sort of.

Chipper Jones has been diagnosed with a bone bruise in his right knee after undergoing an MRI exam today and as expected plans to play through the injury for the final two games of the season.

Jones made it pretty clear that he was willing to play through just about anything short of a broken leg and last night he doubled and homered despite saying afterward that he probably shouldn’t have even been in the lineup.

For all the wreckage around him, Jones has hit .294 with four homers, seven doubles, and an .872 OPS in 24 games this month.
