Ryan Mason Update: Hull Midfielder Is Back Speaking After Suffering A Skull Fracture Against Chelsea
It is never a good sight when professional athletes suffer severe injuries playing the sport they love so much.
So it was not easy to see Hull City midfielder Ryan Mason stretchered off at the weekend in the game against Chelsea.
The Tigers are currently struggling at the bottom of the table but they are just a couple of points away from safety and will know that a decent run of form can get them out of the drop zone.
Their trip to Stamford Bridge did not give them a point but it could have potentially left the game, and the whole competition with a bitter memory.
In what looked like a painful incident straight away, Ryan Mason clashed with Gary Cahill in the penalty box which resulted in a clash of heads.
The duo hit the ground in pain as help was called for straight away. Chelsea’s Cahill did not seem to be too badly hurt but Hull’s midfielder suffered a severe concussion and was not able to continue.
He was stretched off the field in the 14th minute of the game, while the medical staff took quick measures, and gave him oxygen to get him back to normal.
It was later revealed that the former Tottenham Hotspur star suffered a skull fracture. Though it sounds dangerous, the 25-year old is now able to talk and was visited by a few players at the hospital.
He successfully had surgery at St Mary’s Hospital in London on Sunday evening and was visited by the Hull captain, Michael Dawson, and three club officials on Monday.
The English outfit released a press statement that read: “Ryan has been visited this morning at St Mary’s Hospital by club captain Michael Dawson, club doctor Mark Waller, head of medical Rob Price and club secretary Matt Wild.
“Ryan has been speaking of the incident yesterday and will continue to be monitored at the hospital over the coming days where the club will remain in close contact with Ryan, his family and the staff at St Mary’s.”
“Ryan and his family have also been extremely touched by the overwhelming support they have received and would very much like to thank all of those who have posted such positive comments both on social media and in the press over the last 24 hours.”
In a gesture of sportsmanship, Cahill, along with Chelsea’s skipper John Terry visited the player at the hospital and spent some time with him.
They also spent time with the player’s family and were accompanied by assistant manager Steve Holland on their visit.
Let’s hope that he is back fit and playing the sport he loves soon enough!
