[MLS INJURY REPORT] Toronto FC can't win for losing. Its 2-0 win at New England on Saturday night was marred by a knee injury that will sideline Designated Player Danny Koevermans for the rest of the 2012 MLS season. Meanwhile, Chivas USA midfielder Oswaldo Minda is out indefinitely after he dislocated his shoulder in training on Saturday.

Koevermans, 33, will undergo surgery to address a torn ACL in his left knee. The date of the surgery has yet to be determined.

The Dutchman sustained the injury in the first half of the match against the Revs, going down after a collision with New England defender A.J. Soares.

Koevermans was on a roll in recent weeks for TFC and had nine goals in 16 games this season. He had 10 goals in 2011, his first season in MLS.

His age and the severity of the injury have prompted speculation that Koevermans may be forced to retire.

Minda, a key acqusition for Chivas USA in midfield, landed awkwardly and his shoulder came out.

    It does not surprise me at all that it was Soares that put Koevermans. Whenever I have watched Soares play, he gets away with some pretty dirty tactics. I played and I also refereed, I can honestly say that he would have gotten many yellow and red cards that he deserves. the officiating in the MLS really stinks. To me the referees are either really stupid or they have an agenda.

    GS, I'm in agreement...it is obvious that the majority of MLS refs let chippy play get out of control and they are delinquent in letting many hard fouls go unpunished, especially when a player has been already booked...it looked like Soares clipped his man.
