Also, given how the injury came with no contact, and resulted from a play Rose frequently attempts, I think there was potential for some part of his leg to give way at any time in the series. If not today, maybe a few days from now. He's just been really injured this year without a lot of time to rest. Due to the way he plays, he was probably an injury waiting to happen, until he gets proper rest.
