The injury bug has hit Chris Albright again.
The New York Red Bulls right back underwent surgery for a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee and will miss the next 4-6 weeks, the team announced on Tuesday.
It's not the first time Albright has suffered this injury. He tore his left lateral meniscus in 2009 and missed almost all of the season. He became a fixture at right back for the Red Bulls after regaining fitness last season and moving to the club from New England. He made 18 starts in the regular season and two more in the playoffs and was a finalist for 2010 MLS Comeback Player of the Year.
New signing Teemu Tainio figures to slot into Albright's right back position for the time being, though fellow offseason signing Jan Gunnar Solli could also play there.
What do you think about the news? Do you see the Red Bulls' defense suffering with Albright out?
