After a scary week in the intensive care unit, Charlie Davies is finally starting to recover.
The U.S. national team forward suffered serious injuries in the aftermath of a car accident last week while the team was in Washington for a World Cup qualifying game. According to ESPN.com, he suffered several broken bones — including two in his right leg — and a lacerated bladder. He will undergo surgery next week to repair a broken left elbow and may require additional surgeries to repair facial fractures.
Davies is now listed in fair condition and is able to receive visitors at Washington Hospital Center Medstar.
The former Boston College soccer standout will need six to 12 months to recover and thus will not be able to participate in the World Cup, which begins in June.
