(Newser) – "Back to my brothers I go," tweeted Louisville basketball player Kevin Ware today. He's on crutches and out of an Indianapolis hospital two days after snapping his leg in a gruesome mid-game injury, reports AP. Ware is headed back to campus and hopes to accompany the team to Atlanta—where he moved prior to high school—for its semifinal game this weekend. "This is a minor setback for a major comeback," Ware tells the New York Daily News. The sophomore intends to play basketball again, but he's expected to be out for a year.
