Agent says Jacoby Ellsbury may be back before playoffs

Scott Boras, the agent for Jacoby Ellsbury, expects the injured Red Sox center fielder to be back in time for the postseason, likely earlier.

According to Boras, the biggest issue for Ellsbury is the edema, or swelling, in his right foot and not the small fracture on the surface of the navicular bone. The swelling is affecting the movement of a tendon coming from the tibia.
