Those fearing the worst for John Lackey . . . exhale.

The "prognosis is good" for him after a second opinion, according to WEEI.com.

Lackey left Saturday's game against the Orioles after throwing a pitch and immediately grabbing his right arm.

It was initially feared that it could be his surgically repaired elbow, but it has since been deemed a bicep injury - and not a tear, either.

The report also has Lackey most likely missing his scheduled Saturday start vs. the Rays.
