From a MLB.com report about Derek Jeter’s season ending injury.
As Jeter lay on the infield dirt writhing in pain, he told Girardi not to carry him off the field. Unable to put pressure on his left leg, Jeter eventually needed help from Girardi and head athletic trainer Steve Donohue to get back to the dugout. But Girardi said Jeter would have preferred to do it on his own.
“Because that’s who he is,” Girardi said. “He sends messages through the way he plays a lot of times, the way he goes about his business. He’s going to have his conversations one on one with people, but he sends a message every day by the way he goes about his life. He was sending a message, ‘We’re going to be fine.'”
