Morgan Freeman is a free man once again.
The 71-year-old Oscar winner has been released from Memphis' Regional Medical Center, just four days after his car-flipping crash and three days after undergoing four-and-a-half-hour surgery for his injuries, hospital spokeswoman Kathy Stringer confirmed.
The Dark Knight star, who was said to be "doing well" and "in good spirits" while recovering earlier this week, will likely have to wear a neck brace for the next six to eight months, according to Freeman's attorney and business partner, and ad hoc spokesman of recent days, Bill Luckett.
"The doctors have said it will be six months to a year before he plays golf again," Luckett quipped to USA Today. "He hates that."
