LOS ANGELES -- U.S. forward Charlie Davies has undergone elbow surgery as part of his recuperation from injuries sustained in a car crash last October.

"Can't wait to be able to bend my arm again!" he said on his Twitter account before the operation in Los Angeles.

Davies, who has four goals in 17 international appearances, broke several bones and injured his bladder during the Oct. 13 accident in the Washington, D.C., area. A former Boston College player in his first season with France's Sochaux, he is expected to miss the World Cup because of his injuries.
