This is Bryce Harper, spotted in the Atlanta airport Monday evening, after he had visited with Dr. James Andrews. Adam Kilgore’s brief report on Harper’s trip cited “one person familiar with the visit” who “said the injury that has sidelined Harper since May 27 will not lead to long-term damage.” That seemed promising.

And Harper’s “All good!” tweet Monday night certainly seemed encouraging, too.

So there’s not much point to staring at this image, other than to note that there have been way too many images of D.C. athletes wearing large knee braces in recent years.

Update: Harper’s agent, Scott Boras, told Kilgore that Harper underwent “no operative procedures” during his visit to Andrews.
