BERLIN (AP) — Bundesliga club Hoffenheim says midfielder Boris Vukcevic has awoken from a coma, 1½ months after he was injured in a car accident.

Vukcevic was put into an induced coma after operations following the accident on Sept. 28, when his car collided head-on with a truck.

Hoffenheim says the 22-year-old German is conscious a few hours a day and able to communicate with his relatives.

But the club says that in view of the head injuries he suffered it's still not possible to make any "serious forecast" about prospects for a full recovery.
