Andrelton Simmons ankle fine
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The ankle injury that Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons aggrevated Wednesday night is not severe enough to keep him out of the lineup going forward, per MLB.com.

Though he was removed from the game in the fourth inning against Washington and was walking with a noticeable limp after the game, Simmons said it wasn't hurting him.

"It's not a sprained ankle," Fredi Gonzalez said. "It's more of an Achilles thing, up high, that bites him every once in a while. I didn't want to take a chance with it."

Simmons ended his six-game hitting streak with a 0-for-2 performance and now owns a stat line of .251/.297/.374.
