Watch: Kevin Ware is walking again!!

Louisville Cardinals basketball player Kevin Ware was released from IU (Indiana University) Methodist hospital Tuesday, proving that his brave spirit will not be slowed down by a broken leg (or anything else, for that matter).

Ware was on the court during the NCAA Midwest Regional Finals when he landed at a bad angle and suffered a severe break, leaving his shin protruding through the skin of his leg. His teammates rallied around him, reacting visibly to his injury, but making it a point to support Ware. Louisville won the game after he urged them to "Do it (for me), y'all."

Ware will return to Kentucky on Tuesday and hopes to see his team in Atlanta at the Final Four. He tweeted about his departure as he left the hospital on crutches, summing up his positive spirit in just a few succinct words.
