A disappointing, injury-plagued season has come to an apparent early end for Steve Lenhart.
Lenhart suffered a foot injury while riding his bike last week and is expected to miss the remainder of the San Jose Earthquakes’ regular season, according to a report from CenterlineSoccer.com. The incident occurred on Thursday, with the gash the 28-year-old forward sustained requiring stitches and a few weeks of rest in order to properly heal.
The Earthquakes’ campaign ends on Oct. 26, making a potential return this year doubtful.
The injury comes just weeks after Lenhart made his way back from a knee injury that forced him to miss most of the summer. In total, he has made just 11 appearances this season and recorded just one goal and one assist.
What do you make of this news? Do you see Lenhart playing again for San Jose this season? How disappointed have you been with his injury-plagued season?
