U.S. Soccer Player Davies Released from Hospital

By  | 

WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. national team forward Charlie Davies has
been released from a Washington hospital nearly a month after a car
accident.

The 23-year-old Davis was released Tuesday. He underwent several
surgeries after the Oct. 13 car crash, which killed a 22-year-old
passenger.

Doctors say he will continue his rehabilitation with the soccer team's medical staff.

In a statement, Dr. James DeBritz of Washington Hospital Center says Davies faces a long recovery. He says it will take extensive physical therapy for Davies to recover from several broken bones, including two in his right leg, and a lacerated bladder.

Davies is expected to need six to 12 months to recover, essentially ruling him out for the World Cup, which begins in South Africa in June.
