    Ryan Mason remains patient in recovery from fractured skull

    Joe Jones

    Hull City midfielder Ryan Mason has provided an update on his recovery from a life-threatening head injury.

    Mason suffered a fractured skull in a collision with Chelsea defender Gary Cahill in January, with the former Tottenham player suffering bleeding on the brain.

    The 26-year-old is well on the road to recovery but he will have to wait for a second CT scan to determine when he can return to football.

    "I am just waiting for my skull to fuse together," he told Sky Sports.

    "I had a CT scan a month ago and it isn't quite there yet. We are going to repeat that scan in the near future and measure the rate of healing and go from there.

    "Physically I am ready to go back in when it is safe and sensible.

    "It's just a case of a bone healing now, there's no brain damage or anything like that. I am in a positive way."

    When asked what the next stage in his recovery would be, Mason said: "Joining in with the boys, jumping for headers and being involved in that contact type of training.

    "I feel fine, I wouldn't put myself in a position that could possibly be dangerous. I am just being patient, respecting my body and letting it heal.

    "It was a dangerous collision but credit to the medical team that was there and acted so quickly that I am here now and in a physical condition to return to playing once the skull has healed."
