Indiana sophomore forward Devin Davis remains in the hospital, now nearly five full days after his accident early Saturday morning. Davis was struck by a car driven by teammate Emmitt Holt and suffered a hairline skull fracture in the accident.
Indiana coach Tom Crean updated Davis' status on Wednesday afternoon as he addressed the media for the first time since the accident.
Crean said Davis was able to sit upright in a chair for the first time this morning and also went for a walk. Davis played teammate Stanford Robinson in the card game "Uno" twice last night, and was able to beat him, according to Crean.
“This is a long road with his injury," Crean said. "This is going to be a long process.”
On Tuesday, we provided an exclusive update on Davis, including that the injury he sustained was a skull fracture. Davis still had swelling in his brain as of Tuesday, but he was moved out of the ICU on Monday night and attempted to eat solid food for the first time on Tuesday.
