(CNN) - Kevin Ware, the Louisville guard whose devastating leg break was seen by millions of TV viewers on Sunday, was released from an Indianapolis hospital on Tuesday.
Basketball fans across America averted their eyes in horror Sunday night as Ware, 20, came down wrong on his leg during an NCAA tournament game in Indianapolis, causing a gruesome break. His right tibia, or shinbone, broke through the skin in what's called an open or compound fracture.

(CNN) - Olympic champion Lindsey Vonn suffered a "complex knee injury" when she crashed during the opening day super-G at the Alpine Ski World Championships in Austria on Tuesday, doctors said.
The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association said the four-time Alpine World Cup champion was airlifted from the race course in Schladming, Austria, to a hospital. She was evaluated and released, according to the U.S. Ski Team.
Vonn, 28, does not need immediate surgery on the "complex torn ligament" in her right knee, said Dr. Christian Kaulfersch, who is treating her at the Schladming Hospital.
U.S. team officials are considering whether she should fly back to the United States or remain in Europe for treatment, he said.
