Ralston out for season with torn ACL

New England Revolution midfielder Steve Ralston is out for the season with a torn ACL suffered during the Revs' 2-1 win vs. Seattle on Saturday at Gillette Stadium.

Ralston suffered the injury after planting his right leg upon landing following an aerial challenge vs. Osvaldo Alonso. His ACL gave way as he planted the leg on the Gillette Stadium turf.

Losing Ralston is a big blow to a New England team still fighting for a playoff berth. The Revs currently hold the eighth and final playoff spot, and have five matches remaining this season.

Think the Revs can still make the playoffs without Ralston? Who do you see stepping up in his absence? Are you praying for the day when no MLS games are played on artificial turf?
