TEGUCIGALPA, HONDURAS (AP) - Midfielder Jorge Claros of Honduran first-division team Motagua is being treated for gunshot wounds after being attacked in an apparent robbery attempt.

Dr. Oscar Benitez, who is treating Claros, said Wednesday that the player’s wounds are not life-threatening. Benitez said Claros sustained a grazing wound to the head and could recover within three weeks.

The gunmen attacked Claros‘ vehicle in an apparent failed robbery attempt Wednesday at a petrol station near Honduras‘ Atlantic coast.

Police said Claros‘ wife and her unnamed friend, who were also in the vehicle, were uninjured. Claros was able to drive himself to a hospital.

Claros, 25, represented Honduras in its three first-round matches at the 2008 Olympics.
