We all at Brace The Hammer want to extend our prayers and well wishes for Hull City midfielder Ryan Mason.
As you all likely know by now, Mason suffered a debilitating head injury when he collided with Chelsea centerback Gary Cahill in their contest on Sunday. After initial thoughts of a concussion, it sadly turned out to be a fractured skull reminiscent of then Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech’s frightening blow from over 10 years ago.
It has put the former Tottenham midfielder’s life in danger, but thankfully he is currently listed in stable condition after having surgery at St Mary’s Hospital in the Paddington part of central London.
Hull City released a statement on their traumatized player.
“The Club can confirm that Ryan Mason sustained a skull fracture in our fixture at Chelsea this afternoon, “ the club said. “He was taken to St Mary’s Hospital where he has undergone surgery. Ryan is in a stable condition and is expected to remain in hospital for the next few days. Everyone at the Club would like to express their sincere thanks for the excellent and swift care given to Ryan by both the Accident and Emergency department and Neurosurgery Unit at St Mary’s Hospital.”
The great outpouring of support for Mason has been both domestic and global, including from West Ham’s Twitter page.
