Charlie Davies survived a car crash that killed another passenger on Oct. 13. Davies, 23, sustained multiple serious injuries (a broken right femur and tibia, a broken left elbow, facial fractures and a lacerated bladder). The prognosis was that he would face an arduous six- to 12-month recovery and extensive rehabilitation.

But now, it looks like he could be ready to roll as early as April.

Barring any setbacks, Davies could be back on the field with club team FC Sochaux by April, meaning his chances of playing for the United States in June's World Cup look more possible than ever. In fact, Davies EXPECTS to play in the World Cup.

And that's great news for team USA, which desperately needs some offense to do some damage in South Africa.
