Manchester United defender Luke Shaw is expected to have a second operation on his broken leg on Friday, Press Association Sport understands. ”He will not play in the group phase I think. I hope he can play again this season.” Former Coventry defender David Busst suffered a horrific leg break against United at Old Trafford in 1996 after colliding with Denis Irwin and Brian McClair and retired from the game a few months later. Busst needed 26 operations and contracted the MRSA virus but he is confident Shaw will make a full recovery. He told The Sun: ”It wasn’t the actual fractures that stopped me from playing, it was the infections. ”But so long as it’s a clean break and there is no infection, there shouldn’t be a major issue for Luke.” Two orthopaedic surgeons and a trauma specialist conducted an operation on Shaw’s leg on the night of the match. United declined to comment any further on the matter, but it is understood that Shaw will have a second operation at the Dutch hospital as part of his recovery on Friday. Shaw will remain in Eindhoven until United’s medical staff are happy for him to come home. United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward visited Shaw the morning after the match and the player’s parents are understood to be with him now. Shaw is said to have suffered a “clean break” of the right leg, which makes it more likely his recovery will be quicker. The player himself has not set a target for his comeback date, but Louis van Gaal said after the match that he could return by March. ”I am not a doctor so I cannot say that, but when you have a double fracture it is I think until six months,” the United manager said. ”It is about how it develops. You can never say that in advance. Shaw was taken to the St Anna Ziekenhuis hospital on the outskirts of Eindhoven on Tuesday night after breaking his right leg in two places during United’s 2-1 defeat to PSV . The England left-back broke his tibia and fibula following a challenge by PSV defender Hector Moreno in the 15th minute. Press Association
BRYAN FAUST/Herald PhotoOffensive MVP (tie): QB John Stocco, WR Paul HubbardDefensive MVP: LB Mark ZalewskiSpecial Teams MVP: LS Dave PeckOffensive Scout Team MVP: RB Jerry ButlerDefensive Scout Team MVP: LB Culmer St. Jean Seeing as he played out just one drive in the second half against Indiana Saturday, one could only imagine just how many yards John Stocco could have accumulated had he remained in the game.It didn’t matter, however, to the powers that be in the Big Ten, who awarded Stocco his third career Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week honor for his efforts in the 52-17 victory.UW head coach Bret Bielema credited his quarterback’s consistency in explaining the 304 yards and three touchdowns Stocco racked up in an abbreviated stint against the Hoosiers.”I walked down the hallway yesterday when we found out John had gotten that MVP award and told Paul (Chryst, UW offensive coordinator), and he goes, ‘That’s pretty good considering he only played really two quarters and a series,'” Bielema said at his press conference Monday. “The amazing part [was] just the consistency he was able to deliver the football, [and] also making the correct calls.”Bielema rejected any notions that Stocco’s improved statistics are a reflection of better play, saying that the fifth-year senior takes the same attitude into every game and simply happened to shine in a more obvious manner against the lowly Hoosiers.”He carries over a mentality that he just lives every play for what it is, probably a 1-0 mentality to the finest,” Bielema said, referring to Wisconsin’s No. 1 team goal. “He isn’t going to let one play adversely affect the next, not only in his game, but … if he throws the ball to someone and maybe they don’t come up with the play that he was looking for, he doesn’t just turn and go the other way. He continues to come back if he believes there’s that ability in someone.”Pertaining to Bielema’s weekly selections, Stocco earned co-Offensive MVP honors for the Badgers along with Paul Hubbard, the player largely responsible for Stocco’s success. Hubbard tallied six receptions for 122 yards and a touchdown Saturday. Bielema said Hubbard had been itching for a big game and finally cashed in against a stunned IU secondary.”He just took a little bit more of a personal urgency,” Bielema said. “Last year when entering spring ball, he was kind of thrust into the role of a potential go-to guy without ever really having to work to get there. I thought he was into it during the course of the summer and every game leading up to this past weekend.”Stocco becomes the third Badger to receive Player of the Week accolades from the Big Ten. LB Jonathan Casillas was honored on Sept. 4 after the Badgers’ victory at Bowling Green, and punter Ken DeBauche made the list in defeat against Michigan — with both players representing special teams.On the defensive side of the ball, Mark Zalewski was Bielema’s player of the week for Wisconsin. Zalewski, who made six tackles, and the defense’s fine effort was outshined by the offense, although Indiana failed to score a point until many of UW’s starters had left the game.Rounding out Bielema’s MVP list, long snapper Dave Peck was the Special Teams representative for nine perfect snaps — seven PATs and two field goal attempts. Jamil Walker was Offensive Scout Team Player of the Week for the second consecutive time, and safety-converted-linebacker Culmer St. Jean was his Defensive Scout Team counterpart.Return game struggling earlyDespite being asked about potential changes on kickoff returns, Bielema gave no clear answer as to whether current returners Josh Nettles or Jarvis Minton would be replaced.On the unit labeled by Bielema as UW’s “Achilles heel,” Nettles has struggled out of the early going, failing to give Wisconsin any kind of good field position and making poor choices, namely taking the ball out of the end zone when most would take a knee for a touchback.”That is the one unit that I don’t believe we’ve had a winning effort to this point,” Bielema said. “I brought it up yesterday in our staff meeting as well as to our players and definitely have to make a huge step forward in that regard.”The eternal optimist, Bielema said a lack of experience has contributed to a return game in the doldrums, and that means Wisconsin’s defense hasn’t allowed many scores in the year’s first five games.”Fortunately, if you want to turn negatives to positives, the reason we haven’t had much work on kickoff returns is because there hasn’t been that many touchdowns scored against us,” Bielema said. “Obviously the returners are different, but as many as eight guys on that unit hadn’t had any previous reps other than this year, and we just haven’t had that many opportunities.”Badgers help in searchOn the sadder side of events, three Badgers lost a high school friend and teammate Friday night, when Luke Homan drowned after attending Oktoberfest U.S.A.Homan, a student at UW-La Crosse, attended high school and played on the basketball team at Brookfield Central with Badger football players Joe Thomas, Ben Strickland and Steve Johnson. The trio was released Sunday by Bielema to search for Homan, but their friend was found dead in a river Monday.”I told them, they were relieved of Sunday’s obligations, no questions asked, and they went up there and tried to take part in the search,” Bielema said. “I touched base with them again last night as well as this morning, and we don’t have any structured things today.”Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family, to Luke Homan’s family, and everybody associated with their friends as well.”
