Charlie Davies Out Of Surgery And Stabalized

Charlie Davies is stable after several hours of surgery. The United States forward was involved in a one car accident late last night and suffered a lacerated bladder and fractures to to the tibia and femur of his right leg, as well as facial fractures and a left elbow fracture.

His condition remains serious, but the injuries are not life threatening.

Following the accident, Davies was air-lifted to the hospital. Doctors repaired the ruptured bladder and placed titanium rods in both the tibia and femur. The 23-year-old will remain in the hospital for at least a week to undergo surgery for his elbow fracture and possibly the facial fractures.

"Injuries of this nature usually require a recovery period of six to 12 months and extensive rehabilitation," said U.S. Soccer physician Dr. Dan Kalbac. "Due to Charlie’s fitness level, his prognosis for recovery and his ability to resume high-level competition is substantially improved."

The U.S. national team is in Washington D.C. to face Costa Rica in the final CONCACAF World Cup qualifier on Wednesday, Oct. 14.

The accident happened roughly at 3:15 a.m. Tuesday morning, Oct. 13. Ashley J. Roberta, 22, from Phoenix, Md., died on site. Davies was not driving, though the identity of the driver remains unknown.
