[MLS INJURY REPORT] FC Dallas star David Ferreira's bad luck continues. The 2010 MLS MVP will be out 6-8 weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a small fracture in his right foot on Tuesday.

"David injured his right foot during a training match in Florida,” FC Dallas team doctor James C. Walter II said in a statement. “This is an unfortunate, unrelated injury to the one he suffered last season. This fracture is in a bone in the back of the foot that is prone to injury in soccer players and dancers. It causes pain with both running and kicking. While the pain usually resolves with rest and rehab, David has failed to progress satisfactorily with conservative, non-surgical treatment.  He and the team have elected to proceed with surgical excision of the problematic bone."

Ferreira led FC Dallas to the 2010 Western Conference championship with eight goals and 13 assists. In 2011, he had three goals and one assist in six games before a broken right ankle sidelined him at the end of April.

“David’s injury hasn’t responded to treatment the way we expected,” FC Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman said in a statement. “He went back to the doctor for additional tests and got second and third opinions to be sure he chose the best path to recovery for him. We feel confident this is the best way to get David 100 percent back to the field.”

    foot an ankle injuries are more common now as cleats become lighter, less protection from tackles that are catching more feet than ball, referees not calling them closely enough, also,drs are more alert to the injuries that do not show up on x-rays, but, do on mri's. WHAT TO DO??, well, for one, the soccer cleat mfg. can concentrate on a better cleat, instead of just lightness, a 5.6oz cleat is nothing more than a house slipper with studs...my fist can injure a foot inside of them...think what a tackle can do with a cleated boot. Either the referees are going to have to put a stop to bad tackles that make contact with the feet an ankles or soccer cleat mfg's are going to have to make better cleats with the player protection in mind....mho, BOTH....put a stop to players "taking out a player" too..

    Right on. They didn't used to call them "Boots" for nothing. And Kudos to MLS for finally starting to crack down on the "demolition derby" character of the league. Refs can't see all the dirty play that goes on. Review the tapes and get the criminals off the field and out of the league.
