(AP) -- Injured Louisville guard Kevin Ware returned to campus on Tuesday afternoon after he was released from Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.

Ware underwent surgery on Sunday to repair a compound fracture in his right leg that shocked and saddened players and spectators during the first half of Louisville's 85-63 Midwest Regional victory over Duke on Sunday. The horrific injury occurred when Ware landed after a leaping attempt to block a shot.

When he arrived home Tuesday in Louisville carrying the regional championship trophy that coach Rick Pitino left in his hospital room, his first stop was the team's practice center.

The Cardinals are preparing to face Wichita State in the Final Four on Saturday in Atlanta without Ware, one of their top reserves.

Ware is an Atlanta-area native and hopes to travel with the team to the Final Four on Wednesday. He's awaiting final clearance from doctors to make the trip.

Before leaving the hospital on crutches, Ware posted a picture on Twitter and wrote: "Back to my brothers I go."
