Morales completes five-month recovery

It's been nearly five months since Javier Morales suffered the gruesome ankle injury that threatened to end his season, but the Real Salt Lake midfielder completed his comeback with a substitute appearance on Wednesday night.

Overshadowed by CONCACAF Champions League action, Morales made his first appearance since May 7 by coming off the bench and playing the final 30 minutes in Real Salt Lake's 3-0 defeat to Chicago. The result was not one Morales would have hoped for in his return match, but he did complete his recovery at Rio Tinto Stadium in front of a record crowd that has been supporting him all the way through.

Here's a video of Morales talking about his recovery as well as his return to the field:
