Josh Willingham Denies Report That He Has A Torn Meniscus

Earlier today, Mark Zuckerman reported that Josh Willingham was hoping to play through a torn meniscus in his left knee for the rest of the season. Josh Willigham, however, disagrees with this report. Via Bill Ladson of MLB.com:

#Nats LF Josh Willingham said he does not have a torn meniscus in his left knee.    

I do have to admit, it was surprising to hear the news that he was going to play through that kind of injury. I guess we'll have to see how this plays out.
