BOSTON - Boston Red Sox ace Curt Schilling will have surgery on his injured right ankle as long as an MRI shows no problems with infection, the team's doctor said before the World Series victory parade on Saturday.
Dr. Bill Morgan checked Schilling before the parade and said "he looked improved." An MRI is planned for Monday, with surgery possible on Wednesday.
"He wants to have it done yesterday, but we have to make sure that everything's where it has to be for right now," Morgan said. "Right now everything looks good but it's still a little red where the tissues are."
Schilling, who was walking with crutches and a cast on Saturday, has a torn tendon sheath in his right ankle.
