Ross was carted off the field Sunday after injuring his right leg while running to first. The team later revealed Ross suffered a dislocated right hip that was reduced (realigned) at a nearby hospital. While the outfielder's season is likely over, his long-term recovery depends on how much damage was done to the surrounding structures of the hip. When the head of the femur becomes dislocated from the acetabulum of the pevis, multiple injuries are possible, including ligament, cartilage, and soft tissue damage. The most serious of these ailments would be damage to the labrum, the cartilaginous rim that aids in stability. Surgery would be required following a significant tear of the labrum and Ross would have a busy offseason of rehab. If the injury is primarily to the soft tissue then Ross could avoid going under the knife and would instead focus on strengthening the injured musculature.
