Toronto loses Frings for season with hip injury

MOST COMMENTED

[MLS INJURY REPORT] First, Danny Koevermans. Now, Torsten Frings. Toronto FC has sure had bad luck this season with its Designated Players. Following the loss of Koevermans, out for the season with a torn ACL, Frings, the TFC captain, will require arthroscopic surgery on his hip and will be out for the remainder of the 2012 season.

Capped 79 times for Germany, Frings arrived from Werder Bremen last summer and helped Toronto reach the semifinals of the 2012 Concacaf Champions League.

But he has only played in 13 of 27 league games this season after playing 20 games in 2011. Toronto ranks last among MLS's 19 teams with 21 points.

It is expected that Frings will return for the 2013 preseason but how much longer he can play remains to be seen. He will be 36 in November.
