UPDATE (6:01 p.m.): We spoke with Rollins and he said his bruised left foot is still in a considerable amount of pain, but it's feeling better than it did Monday night. At least, Rollins said, he could walk today.

"That's progress," Rollins said.

He had reserve infielder Cody Ransom wheel him from the clubhouse into the trainer's room after the game.

Rollins isn't concerned about the injury keeping him out for long. But hours after the injury, Rollins said he wondered if he had broken the foot.

"It's like, 'Dang, something else?'" Rollins said.

Luckily for the Phillies, it's not that serious.

Wilson Valdez is starting at short on Tuesday. More to come...
