PHILADELPHIA — Jayson Werth suffered a contusion on his right elbow Tuesday night, iced it and said while it was certainly a painful issue at the time he didn’t think it’d be anything all too serious. He did admit that he might need some time.

Looks like he’s going to get it as he is absent from the Nationals’ lineup for Wednesday night’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies and right-hander Vance Worley.
