McGrath will have to spend 8 to 10 weeks in a full neck brace and is able to recover at home with orders to maintain very limited activity for the more than 2-month period. He is however, expected to make a complete recovery and plans to resume normal activity by the end of the year.
McGrath had this to say about the crash that had him hospitalized during the second night of the Jeremy McGrath Invitational, "First of all, I know I am a very lucky guy right now--an injury like this could of course been so much worse. Second, although I can't believe I missed the second night of the invitational, I am so proud to hear all the great feedback I've been getting. Friends and family sent me pictures, text messages, emails and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves."
