UPDATE: Tiger Woods recovering after leg surgery following SUV rollover

What's the 814

Tiger Woods is recovering after his SUV rolled over down an embankment yesterday in Rancho Palos Verde, California.

A statement posted to the golfer’s Twitter page says doctors put a rod in his right tibia and used screws and pins to stabilize his ankle and foot.

Woods is 45-years-old, and was already recovering from his 5th back surgery — hoping to be back for the Masters Golf Tournament in April.

A CBS News Medical Contributor says these injuries require “at least 6 months of recovery to get to some semblance of walking — to playing a sport like golf.”
