Rob Wearne in an 'induced coma' following collision with Elburton keeper
The match was abandoned after 75 minutes following the injury, which saw an accidental clash between Elburton Villa's keeper Simon May and Wearne.
An ambulance was called for Wearne, who was taken to hospital around 30 minutes after the incident.
At that time Falmouth Town manager Alan Carey said the player was semi-conscious, but following a transfer to Derriford Hospital, from Treliske, it was revealed that the player has been put into an induced coma.
A spokesperson for Falmouth Town, said the player has had a bolt fitted to relieve pressure and that doctors are going to operate in order to see the fracture and possibly to fit a plate.
They added that doctors are confident the player has not suffered any brain damage.
Wearne joined Falmouth Town this summer, from Penryn Athletic. He has enjoyed a good start to his playing days at Bickland Park, winning praise from his manager for a number of substitute and starting performances.
Wearne, last season, also had a spell at Torquay United's academy.
The Falmouth Town players, who don't have a game next Saturday, are going to all visit Rob Wearne in hospital that day instead.
