WASHINGTON (AP) Chicago Cubs third baseman and 2016 NL MVP Kris Bryant exited Wednesday's game against the Washington Nationals with a "mild-to-moderate" right ankle sprain.

The Cubs announced X-rays on the injured ankle were negative and that a potential DL stint remains uncertain. Manager Joe Maddon said Bryant would sit out at least the next two games including Thursday's series finale.

Bryant, steps away from the third base bag in foul territory, camped under a pop-up off the bat of Nationals catcher Matt Wieters in the bottom of the sixth. He drifted slightly back toward the third base line when making the catch. In the process, Bryant clipped the base with his right foot.
