Philadelphia Union midfielder Roger Torres sprained his MCL and is expected to miss 8-10 weeks.
Philadelphia Union manager Peter Nowak announced Wednesday that midfielder Roger Torres has a torn medial collateral ligament in his left knee and is expected to miss between 8 to 10 weeks.
"It doesn't look good," said Nowak according to the team's press release. "His knee went completely to the side. I knew from the beginning there was something wrong. They will try and determine today and tomorrow what's going to be the procedure from this but the MCL sprain is pretty bad.
"He's going to specialists and getting everything checked out, but Roger will be without us for quite some time. It appears his injury is a lot more serious than we imagined."
