It was one of the lowlights of the American soccer weekend: US youth international and Birmingham City defender Will Packwood suffered a leg fracture vs. Leeds United, which will rule him out for the foreseeable future. The video of the incident follows at the end of this post (warning: video is graphic).
The player himself gave an update on the surgery and his current condition via Twitter:
For those asking, it appears I have a double tib+fib fracture. Broken in as many as four places. Long road to recover...but not impossible!— William Packwood (@WPackwood) January 6, 2013
Surgery went well this morning! Need to head back to Birmingham for another op tomorrow. My leg looks like bionic man!— William Packwood (@WPackwood) January 6, 2013
