Miguel Angel Jimenez broke his tibia in his right leg and will be out of action for up to 5 months.

According to multiple reports, Miguel Angel Jimenez will be sidelined for up to five months after breaking his right leg in a skiing accident in the Sierra Nevada range of Andalucia in southern Spain.

Jimenez, 48, was rushed to a nearby hospital and underwent successful surgery.
