So far there is only one source reporting this...
Plus the one source is WHDH Channel 7. They're not the most reputable source for breaking news, especially in sports. The discussions on Sons of Sam Horn, one of the best places for insider news for the Sox, are saying that nothing has been confirmed and there hasn't even been any x-rays. They report that Crisp is still able to close his fist, which usually is a sign that it's not broken. Furthermore, WEEI Sports Radio reportedly called Crisp himself this morning and he said that he was fine.
My take is that the O's doctor said there is a possibility that it's broken since they haven't seen any x-rays. They have to take every precaution on these thing for liability purposes since there is so much at stake w/ a professional athlete. This info was probably leaked and blown WAY out of proportion by changing slight possibilities into reported fact.
