Guillen still experiencing pain in bruised knee

DETROIT -- Carlos Guillen said Monday that his bruised left knee is still sore, and indicated he'll miss at least two more weeks before he resume activities. However, he still expects to return to action in September.

Asked how his knee is feeling, Guillen said, "Right now, it's not good."

Guillen suffered a deep contusion in his knee last week when Yankees speedster Brett Gardner collided with him sliding into second base on a game-ending double play. The Tigers medical staff said Guillen's knee would feel worse before it feels better, so the fact that Guillen is still feeling what he called "sharp pain" isn't altogether a surprise.

The original timetable for Guillen was set at him missing 2-3 weeks, and it's looking like the long end of that prognosis is the best-case scenario.
