Horrible news as I got back into the swing of things from a little mini-vacation: Charlie Davies was involved in a one-car crash in which another passenger was killed. He underwent surgery for a broken right femur and tibia, a broken left elbow, facial fractures and a lacerated bladder. The recovery time is between 6 and 12 months, though it might be decresaed by his excellent fitness level.
On another level, this means Davies probably won’t be playing in the World Cup next summer. It also means he’s likely out for the rest of the French league season (he plays for Socheaux). He is a huge loss for both club and country.
Get well soon, Charlie. I can’t wait to see you on your feet again.
