Davies walking on his own
Slowly, but surely U.S. international forward Charlie Davies is making improvement after being involved as a passenger in a near fatal car accident in northern Virginia in October.

He visited the U.S. National Team at its hotel near its training camp in Carson, Calif. Thursday afternoon to say hello to his friends on the team, according to the U.S. Soccer blog.
"Charlie is looking great and walking on his own," the blog said. "He is returning to Delaware to continue rehabilitation; right now he is in great spirits and taking things one day at a time."
He suffered a ruptured bladder was repaired before doctors, a fractured elbow, broken tibia and femur and facial injuries.
Davies is expected to take from six to 12 months to return, although he wants to play in the World Cup. If he does, that would be considered in some circles a medical miracle.
