'I will be just fine': Christian Yelich thanks fans for support after season-ending injury

MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers' MVP outfielder Christian Yelich made his first public comments since his season-ending injury Thursday afternoon, thanking fans for their support on social media.

"Thank You to all those who have reached out over the last couple days it means a lot," Yelich said.

Yelich's season ended when he fouled a baseball off his kneecap Tuesday night in a costly victory against the Marlins.

"Frustrating way for a season to end but these things happen in sports," the outfielder continued. "I will be just fine and am looking forward to making a full recovery and supporting the boys the rest of the season."

Thankfully, the injury will not require surgery, according to reports . GM David Stearns says the slugger is expected to take 8-10 weeks to fully recover.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers wished Yelich and his Brewers teammates good luck after their star was sidelined.
