Wahl Confirms: Fractures to Tibia, Femur, Face

Grant Wahl confirms Charlie Davies’ injuries:

USSF on Charlie Davies: fractures to right tibia/femur, left elbow, facial fractures. Lacerated bladder.

Turns out that's not all, though. From Wahl's Twitter page:

Davies hospitalized at least 1 week. Added surgery will be required for left elbow, possibly facial fractures.

USSF: Titanium rods inserted in Charlie Davies' right femur/tibia.

USSF doc: Davies' injuries usually require 6-12 months recovery & long rehab. Due to CD fitness, chance to play hi level again improved.

Considering the seriousness of the crash -- the post-crash images are terrifying -- that's a pretty solid prognosis for Davies. Not only is he not at serious long-term health risk, but his soccer career isn't necessarily over, either, two positives to end an otherwise very negative day.
