Jedd Ebanks Cayman Islands National Senior and Under-23 men’s team received serious injuries last Wednesday evening at the North Side playing field during a CIFA Fosters National League game between Elite and Roma.
Ebanks and Omar Stewart of Roma collided head on in a one and one on the ball situation. Both were rushed by ambulance to the George Town Hospital.
Ebanks it was reported suffered a blow to the head which resulted in a blood clot in his brain. He was placed in the critical ward at the hospital and then flown to the Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami where he is still undergoing tests and treatment for his injury.
Mary Ebanks, Jedd’s mother, who is presently by his bedside has reported that he is recuperating expeditiously in the Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami and based on the results of his next CT scan it will be decided if he will be released today.
‘He is doing much better now and eating,’ she said cheerfully. ‘The clot is getting smaller. Jedd will be doing another CT scan on his brain soon after which depending on the results he might be released from the hospital on Monday.
‘He will be out of the game for a while as the doctors have advised him not to participate in any football games during the next two months.’
Meanwhile, Stewart who received a cut on his head received treatment at the George Town Hospital and sent home the following day.
Ebanks and Gabriel Godet both national football representatives returned from Ireland last Wednesday morning where they had been training with Glenavon Football Club who play in the Irish Premier league and home of the Cayman Islands national goal keeper Tuda Murphy.
