The Yankees' captain left Game 3 in the ninth after suffering an ankle injury.

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has been diagnosed with a bone bruise in his left foot and has been listed as day-to-day. Despite the diagnosis, the veteran has stated he will play in Game 4 on Thursday, reports Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com:

If Derek Jeter has his way, there's no chance he'll be left out of the Yankees' starting lineup for Game 4 of the American League Division Series on Thursday night...

"I'll be all right," Jeter said after the Yankees' 3-2 victory. "It's not going to be a big deal."

The 38-year-old Jeter started visibly limping after fouling a ball off his left ankle in the third inning of Game 3 Wednesday night. The veteran still managed to leg out a triple in the at bat and remained in the game until the ninth when he was lifted for Jayson Nix.

Jeter struggled with a left ankle injury for most of the month of September but was adamant that last night's injury was unrelated. If Jeter cannot get around quickly enough to play shortstop Thursday, manager Joe Girardi says there is still a chance he could start Game 4 at DH.
