New England Revolution forward Taylor Twellman’s unhappy year got a touch more miserable this week as test revealed that Twellman will need arthroscopic knee surgery on his right knee to repair a torn medial meniscus suffered during training. The surgery could sideline him between four to six weeks.
The Revs will also be without midfielder Steve Ralston, who suffered a dislocated shoulder in the second half of New England’s 3-0 win against Houston on Saturday. He is also expected to miss extended time. Just how long will be determined by an examination on Wednesday.
The injuries put a damper on the Revs impressive start to the current season and cuts deeply into the modest depth New England was enjoying.
