A U.S. Men’s National Team defender is set for an extended absence after suffering an injury in training.
Fullback Edgar Castillo will miss at least eight weeks with a fractured kneecap, his club Monterrey announced on Thursday.
According to the team, Castillo was injured in training Sunday and did not travel to Haiti for Monterrey’s CONCACAF Champions League win over Don Bosco FC on Wednesday. The injury turned out to be a fractured patella, or knee cap. While it will not require surgery, the club said it expects Castillo to miss at least eight weeks.
The left back had previously appeared in all three of Monterrey’s games thus far in the 2016 Apertura season. Monterrey is set to face Leon on Saturday in Liga MX action.
