Whitaker, who first shared the news on her Instagram account, was injured Sunday night after hosting the Rays on the Runway charity event at a downtown St. Pete hotel. In what she called "a freak accident,'' Whitaker said she stepped on an uneven curb and her foot "buckled and broke,'' leaving her in fierce pain.

Whitaker is on crutches and likely will use a scooter, hoping to get back to the Trop by Tuesday or Wednesday and waiting for word if she will be able to join the team on the upcoming road trip to Toronto and Boston.

Here is the Instagram post with the details. [Instagram]
