Davies seems to get better by the day

MOST COMMENTED

Steven Goff reports that just five-plus months since being severely injured in an auto accident near U.S. national team forward Charlie Davies began light jogging Monday with his French club, Sochaux. He will continue to work with a physiotherapist for two to four weeks, and if all goes well, participate in full sessions.

As Davies' outlook continues to improve, his place in Coach Bob Bradley's plans will, undoubtedly, become one of the most closely followed storylines in the build-up to the World Cup. But Davies must not only regain his fitness, but earn his way back into Sochaux's rotation and show that his speed, touch and finishing ability have not been lost. The club has 10 league matches remaining, with the finale May 15.

The extent of Davies' injuries (ranging from a fractured tibia and femur in his right leg to a lacerated bladder), no one really knows what to expect. Being able to run is one thing; being able to play at a World Cup level is another. Based on his rapid recovery from what was career-threatening trauma, he has given everyone reason to believe that he will be in the mix when Bradley begins trimming his player pool and making plans for the start of training camp on May 16.
