Tiger Woods Injury: Woods Not Sure Whether Injury Will Keep Him Out Of 2011 U.S. Open

Tiger Woods withdrew from the 2011 Players Championship after just nine holes because of pain in his knee and achilles tendon, two injuries that have lingered with him since his performance in the 2011 Masters. Prior to the Players Championship, Woods said he was absolutely going to be healthy in time for the 2011 U.S. Open at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md. next month, but this recent news may throw that into question.

When he was asked about the severity of his injuries, Woods said he really didn't know how long he would be sidelined.

When Woods will return from this latest injury remains unknown.

"I don't know," Woods said. "I just finished nine holes. Give me a few days to see what the docs say and we'll take a look at it."

He has over a month to heal, so one would think he would be OK to play, but he also admitted that he was having trouble walking. Stay tuned.
