Tiger Woods' Twitter account released a statement on Wednesday morning updating everyone on the injuries he suffered in Tuesday's car accident. The tweet includes a statement from the chief medical officer and interim CEO of Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.
From FOX News:
Dr. Anish Mahajan, chief medical officer and interim CEO of Harbor-UCLA Medical Center said Woods is recovering from a long surgical procedure to repair "significant orthopedic injuries to his right lower extremity"
"Comminuted open fractures affecting both the upper and lower portions of the tibia and fibula bones were stabilized by inserting a rod into the tibia," said Mahajan. "Additional injuries to the bones of the foot and ankle were stabilized with a combination of screws and pins."
"Trauma to the muscle and soft-tissue of the leg required surgical release of the covering of the muscles to relieve pressure due to swelling," he continued.

The fact that only one of his legs was injured is a little bit of good news. That said, it's safe to say we won't be seeing Tiger Woods on the golf course anytime soon.
He has a long recovery ahead of him. Sorry Tiger Stans, but your wet dream of him winning another major might have just come to an end.
