Report: Alex Zendejas to miss three-to-four weeks with hamstring injury


Club America has been trying to move its way up the Liga MX Clausura table after a slow start and will have to do so without the services of one of its rising offensive talents.

Alex Zendejas will reportedly miss three-to-four weeks due to a torn hamstring, TUDN reported Monday. Zendejas was carted off in Club America’s 2-2 draw with Santos Laguna on Saturday, being forced off the field in the 19th minute.

Fernando Ortiz is not expecting to have Zendejas for the entire month of February, according to the report.

The 24-year-old had scored one goal and added one assist in five Clausura matches this winter before making his USMNT senior debut in a 2-1 friendly loss to Serbia in January.

Zendejas has scored 13 goals and added three assists in 42 appearances for Club America to date. Club America’s latest draw on Saturday has it sitting 1-4-0 to start the Clausura season.

Club America hosts Necaxa next on Feb. 11 before visiting Atletico San Luis, hosting Club Tijuana, and visiting Atlas later this month.


  1. Torn hamstring. He will be out for a few months. That’s a nasty injury to get over physically and mentally. Was hoping to see him for the March window, but I doubt he will be good to go by then.

    • I was thinking the same thing. 3-4 weeks for a “torn” hamstring? That means Grade 2, which has a healing time of 3-8 weeks,. If it was a completely torn hamstring he’d be out for three months. If his injury is just a Grade 2 he certainly lucked out because it looked worse than that on the field, especially the way he had to be carted off.
