Pedroia and Francona said there was no additional damage found with the injury.
"I knew it was going to be chance if I came back at played and it didn't do well I would be out," Pedroia said. "I knew that. They told me that. It just sucked that it happened. I figured I would play a couple days and if I would be sore I would have a day of two off and be fine. But that's really not the way it's working out right now."
Pedroia said he understands the reason for the cautious approach going forward, considering what could happen if the bone that's healing now breaks.
"Whenever they clear me, I'm going to go," Pedroia said. "Since it was getting worse, risk comes back. If a break happens, it's a big surgery. I have to make sure I'm OK."
