Manchester United midfielder Anderson was treated in hospital after being involved in a car crash in Portugal, according to reports.
Portuguese newspaper Jornal de Noticias reports the 22-year-old had to be dragged from a flaming Audi R8 on Saturday morning after spending the evening at a nightclub, but suffered only minor injuries.
The newspaper quotes the Gestifute agency, Anderson's representatives, as saying: "It was an almighty fright. Anderson will return soon to Manchester."
The Brazilian had been recovering from the knee ligament injury which forced him to miss both the end of last season and the World Cup.
Following the crash, Anderson was treated at Braga Hospital alongside two other people, one man and one woman, according to reports.
"They had only minor injuries," Roman Fresco, a hospital spokesman, was quoted as saying in Jornal de Noticias. "The girl needed more care, but for little things."
