Striker Charlie Davies Faces Long Recovery
US Men’s National Team forward Charlie Davies has finally been released from a Washington D.C. hospital following a fatal car crash in which he was a passenger. Davies has been in the hospital recovering from his injuries for nearly a month after the October 13 accident.
The accident which left one passenger dead, happened the night before Davies was supposed to join his US Men’s National Team colleagues in their battle with Costa Rica. The driver of the vehicle lost control and crashed leaving the car split in half and one person dead.
Davies suffered several serious injuries including a lacerated bladder, facial fractures and a two broken bones in his leg (including his femur).
After being released from the hospital, Davies will rehabilitate with the US soccer team’s staff in his attempt to return to professional soccer. Unfortunately for the great young player, his dream of playing in the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ in South Africa is all but shattered. Recovery time from his injuries is slated at six to twelve months leaving him very little chance of gaining full fitness and holding down a place on the team.
