Rory McIlroy says tests show no new injury to his back

World number two Rory McIlroy has not suffered a fresh injury to his ribs, a scan has confirmed.
The 28-year-old, whose season was disrupted by a stress fracture to his ribs earlier in the year, felt discomfort during the Players Championship over the weekend.
However, scans have shown that the pain he felt at Sawgrass was a “low-grade response” to his previous injury and is not set to keep him out for any length of time.

McIlroy will now rest and decide early next week whether he is fit enough to compete in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, which starts on May 25.

The European Tour tweeted on Monday night: “Rory McIlroy has confirmed an MRI today showed no new injury but a “low grade response” to previous injury.”
The four-time major champion had a hairline rib fracture in January and missed seven weeks.
McIlroy played four times in six weeks through the Masters before taking a three-week break to get married. He says he might have aggravated the injury by practicing three days in a row to get ready for The Players.
