As we all continue to keep Robert Wickens in our thoughts, IndyCar provided another medical update on the Canadian driver this morning. This via Jim Ayello of the IndyStar:
Wickens had surgery to "stabilize a thoracic spinal fracture associated with a spinal cord injury. Titanium rods & screws were placed successfully in Wickens' spine during the surgery, which was performed without complication."— Jim Ayello (@jimayello) August 21, 2018
Obviously, spinal surgery is very serious, so we continue to hope the best for Wickens in his recovery. Keep him and his family in your thoughts.
