Charlie Davies Injured In Car Accident: Open Thread

charlie-daviesCharlie Davies, one of the most promising US soccer players, was badly injured in a car accident on Tuesday morning and is now listed in serious condition after lengthy surgery this afternoon.

“Obviously, as a team we were saddened to learn this news,” said U.S. Men’s National Team head coach Bob Bradley. “Our thoughts and prayers are with Charlie and his family, as well as the people in the car and the families of the others involved. As a team, we are relying on each other in a moment that has for sure hit us all hard.”

UPDATE: Grant Wahl is reporting that Davies’s injuries are fractures to right tibia/femur, left elbow, facial fractures, and lacerated bladder. The USSF doctor says that Davies’ injuries usually require 6-12 months recovery & long rehab. Due to Davies’s fitness, chance to play high level again improved.

Based on that news, it appears very unlikely that Davies will play any role in the 2010 World Cup. His future as a soccer player is more hopeful, but you have to question whether Davies will be able to bounce back from such severe injuries. Let’s sure hope so.
