All indications are that Jacoby Ellsbury will be back for playoffs, but on "Uno Sports Tonight," Michael Felger is skeptical.

Ellsbury and manager John Farrell say despite a fracture in the center fielder's right foot he'll be ready before the end of the regular season, which now has nine games to go.

"John Farrell says he has 'yet to initiate baseball activity' whatever that means," Said Felger. "Everyone says he'll be ready so I guess I've got to take it at its word."

Felger said he's naturally cynical and Ellsbury's injury history isn't making him confident he'll be back.

co-host Gary Tanguay thinks too big a deal is being made of it. "He'll be fine," Tanguay said. "It's not like he's missed the whole season."
