Midfielder returns to Huddersfield after hospital stay
- Update issued on Jonathan Hogg's injury
- Scans reveal fracture in Jonathan's neck
- 'Hoggy' returning to Huddersfield to continue recovery
Huddersfield Town has today issued an update on the injury that Jonathan Hogg sustained in last night’s Sky Bet Championship game at Bristol City.
Jonathan was removed from the field of play in the eighth minute yesterday evening due to concerns of a potential neck injury after an accidental collision with teammate Mark Hudson.
Jonathan was subsequently referred onwards to Bristol Royal Infirmary, where he underwent further investigations yesterday evening and early this morning (18 March).
The results have detailed a fracture within his cervical spine (neck).
He remained in hospital throughout this morning for ongoing observations and underwent further investigations concerning the associated soft tissues within his injured area. The results of this scan have confirmed no significant trauma to any of the soft tissues.
He was discharged from hospital on Saturday afternoon and will now continue with his aftercare in Yorkshire concerning his fracture management.
Throughout both days, Jonathan has been conscious and completely aware of his situation.
Although he is expected to miss the rest of the 2016/17 season, the Club is happy that Jonathan is in no immediate danger and looks forward to seeing ‘Hoggy’ back out on the pitch as soon as is safely possible.
Alongside Jonathan, everyone at the Club would like to thank the medical staff at Bristol City and the NHS staff at Bristol Royal Infirmary for ensuring Jonathan was looked after and received appropriate care.
