Anyone Worried About Pedroia?

Because I have to say I'm starting to...

"Pedroia slipped while rounding second base in the eighth inning of last night’s 3-2 loss against the Indians and fell face-first on the rain-soaked infield at Progressive Field. Pedroia did not immediately try to get up. He struggled to his feet, then left the game escorted by a trainer, walking cautiously (Boston.com)."

This is the 2nd time Pedroia has had a scare with that foot that he has a screw in. What made me more nervous this time was his comment "“When I do something like that, my leg goes kind of like a stinger like you get in football. It took a little while to get the feeling back in it,’’ he said. “Anaheim was perfect, I got the feeling back in a minute. It took five this time.’’ Maybe I am reading into too much, but when they were playing in on WEEI and he kept saying how he loses feeling it just made me nervous. The Sox can't afford to lose him, and for this team to hit on all cylinders they are going to not only need him to be healthy but hitting a lot better then .246 (2 HRs 11 RBIs).

They are saying he will get tonight's game off (which they say was scheduled anyways), and be out there the next game. Still at what point to be start getting worried that he isn't 100% after looking at his stats this year?
