[AMERICANS ABROAD] U.S. national team captain Carlos Bocanegra, will be out six weeks with a torn hamstring, according to Racing Santander, the Spanish second division he joined in the summer.

Bocanegra suffered the injury in the opening minutes of the USA’s 2-2 tie with Russia Wednesday. He left the friendly, played in Krasnodar, in the 18th minute. Testing Friday morning conducted by Racing diagnosed the injury, which was specified by the club as a Grade II tear.

A timely recovery would return him to action for the start of the Hexagonal against Honduras Feb. 6. He earned his 110th cap against Russia.

The 33-year-old Bocangera joined the Spanish club on loan in late August following a financial meltdown at his previous team, Glasgow Rangers. Bocanegra has been starting regularly for Racing, which is just above the relegation zone in 17th place (of 22 teams) with a 3-5-5 record.
