Bad news simply got worse for Robbie Rogers and the LA Galaxy.

According to the Galaxy, Rogers has been placed on the MLS Season Ending Injury list. The defender has undergone three foot surgeries in the past 16 months but sustained nerve damage due to an injection used in the latest operation.

Due to the freak nature of the injury, there was no timetable for recovery and the Galaxy hoped that Rogers would feature this season. With no progress in his recovery from February to now, the team had to add Rogers to the Season Ending Injury list.

The defender has undergone eight operations in his soccer career which has spanned 10 seasons with the LA Galaxy and Columbus Crew as well as a stint in England.

    Dude, that sucks. He’s still fairly young right? Could he still comeback? Would he want to comeback?

      Definitely never want to hear “season ending”. I’m sure he still has a few years left in MLS if he wants them.

    I’ve battled back from nerve damage in both feet, and both times it took 6 months of no weight bearing to heal the nerve, and 6-8 months of rehabilitation to get my muscles back. Poor man. I’m hoping that he has no other setbacks.

    He’s going to retire at the end of the season, but by doing this they save some money due to MLS and the silly rules in place.
