USA Forward Charlie Davies Released From Hospital

Charlie Davies is out of the hospital and looking to work with national team doctors to rehabilitate from injuries suffered in an Oct. 13 car accident.A month after his involvement in a car accident, United States forward Charlie Davies has been released from the hospital.

The Oct. 16 accident killed one 22-year-old passenger and left Davies, 23, badly broken. Following several surgeries at Washington Hospital Center, Davies moved to National Rehabilitation Center, from which he was released Tuesday.

"I would like to take the time to thank everyone who has dealt with me in the Hospital Center and NRH for really putting in the time to help me get better as a person and as an athlete," said Davies in a statement.

"I continue to improve every day, and I look forward to getting back on my feet and attacking rehabilitation."

The estimated recovery time falls between six and 12 months for injuries that include two broken bones in his right leg, facial fractures, a lacerated bladder, and a broken left elbow. Working with that time frame, the Sochaux striker is unlikely to be fit for the World Cup in June.
