3-Month Recovery Slated After Season

There's a possibility Curt Schilling has pitched for the final time in 2004.

Red Sox team doctor Bill Morgan said today that Schilling has a dislocated tendon in his right ankle, and said he's "relatively optimistic" they can find a way to stabilize it enough for the Sox ace to make his scheduled Game 5 start. However, if the ankle cannot be stabilized, Sox general manager Theo Epstein said Schilling will not start Game 5. Sox docs optimistic they can use a new brace, however, if he does not pass his next test, he will be shut down.
