Jimmy Albertson – Back, Bruising, Sternum, Chest, Lungs, and Hand 

Comment: Albertson had an awful crash during practice in Daytona, sustaining compressions and fractures to some thoracic vertebrae, an epidural hematoma, a broken/displaced sternum, a clot in his chest, lung contusions, and a broken hand. Albertson said his doctors told him his back and lungs are now stable enough for surgery, which he’ll have today [Thursday] to reattach his sternum. After surgery he’ll get to work on rehabilitating his back. A fund to assist Albertson with medical costs has been set up through Road 2 Recovery. If you wish to make a contribution, go here.
