Report: Charlie Davies Out At Least 6-12 Months

Davies-101309

Former B.C. Eagle In Serious Condition After One-Car Accident

Update 10:15pm: Information has finally been released about the extent of US Soccer striker Charlie Davies’ injuries, and it’s not good news. According to Grant Wahl of CNNSI.com, Davies fractured his right tibia, right femur, left elbow and suffered possible facial fractures. He will be in the hospital for at least one week and may need more surgery. Wahl said Davies had titanium rods inserted into his femur/right leg and someone who suffers these types of injuries usually needs between six and 12 months to recover from, not to mention rehab. Of course the first concern is for the 23-year-old’s health, but it looks like he will not be on the field for the US in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa…

Update 9:23pm: Grant Wahl of SI.com confirms Davies was not the driver of the car and the fatality was someone who was also a passenger. Davies was out after curfew. More updates later…

Former B.C. Eagle and current U.S. Soccer striker Charlie Davies was injured in a one-car accident 3:15 a.m. Tuesday in suburban Washington, D.C., in which another person was killed. A U.S. Soccer Federation spokesman said Davies was in surgery Tuesday afternoon and in stable condition. He said he did not suffer life-threatening injuries.

Davies was expected to be in surgery for five hours, but the extent of his injuries are unknown. Through his Twitter account, Sports Illustrated’s Grant Wahl said a US Soccer spokesman originally said Davies’ injury is possibly career-threatening, but later retracted that to wait for the facts to come out to release any more information.

A police officer on the scene of the crash said the car “was pretty much split in half.”
