Cincinnati Reds outfielder Eric Davis, injured in the final game of the World Series, suffered a more serious kidney injury than originally thought but will not require surgery. Davis was in stable condition Monday in the intensive care ward of Merritt Hospital, in Oakland, said Dr. Robert Smith, who examined Davis.

Davis' injury was initially reported as a severely bruised kidney, but a written statement issued by the Reds on Monday said the outfielder also suffered a kidney laceration.All tests have shown the kidney to be functioning properly. Smith said Davis will remain in bed for the next few days and will require prolonged bed rest and limited activity for several weeks.
