MOST COMMENTED

[MLS INJURY REPORT] Sporting Kansas City forward Teal Bunbury is out for the season after suffering a torn ACL and damaged LCL in his left knee during Sunday's 1-1 draw against the New York Red Bulls. Bunbury will undergo surgery and is expected to miss six to eight months.

The injury occurred in the fourth minute of last night's match in a collision with Red Bulls goalkeeper Bill Gaudette as Bunbury set up Kei Kamara's goal.

Bunbury, 22, has five goals and one assist this season in 22 matches to increase his career totals to 21 goals and six assists in three MLS seasons (including playoffs) since being selected fourth overall in the 2010 MLS SuperDraft out of Akron.

His 21 goals in MLS competition (including playoffs) are the most among all active MLS players 23 years of age or younger.

After contributing five goals and two assists in his rookie campaign, Bunbury led Sporting KC in scoring last season with 11 goals in MLS competition (including playoffs).

Bunbury debuted for the U.S. national team in November 2010 and scored in his second appearance in January 2011. He most recently started a pair of U.S. international friendlies in January, assisting on Graham Zusi's game-winning goal in a 1-0 win at Panama, and represented the USA in Olympic qualifying.
