The New York Red Bulls' center back has announced he is OK.

Since Saturday, there has been a lot of talk about Karl Ouimette. Mostly, it has been concern for his health and outrage at the brutal kick to the back that jeopardized his career.

Though there has been encouraging news about his subsequent recovery, we have not heard directly from Ouimette himself, nor have we heard any conclusive report that he is likely to pull through without any long-term effects on his ability to play soccer.

The latter may be a long time coming, since a back injury will likely be handled with some care and attention by the New York Red Bulls. But the former - word on his condition from the mam himself - has now been addressed.

Great news! Get well soon, Karl.
