[MLS INJURY REPORT] About six weeks is the projected time frame of recovery for D.C. United forward Lionard Pajoy, who underwent hernia surgery on Wednesday.

The surgery to repair his left inguinal hernia was performed by Dr. Glenn Sandler of Advanced Surgery PC in Rockville, Md.

Pajoy, 32, came to D.C. last season from Philadelphia in a trade. He has scored five goals and registered one assist in 30 games for United, including two goals in 18 appearances (10 starts) this season. His MLS lifetime stats are 10 goals and three assists in 50 games.

He started his MLS career in 2012 with Philly after playing in his native Colombia for six clubs since his pro debut with Cortula in 2004.

Attackers Dwayne De Rosario (hip flexor strain) and Chris Pontius (leg neural tension) have been bothered by injuries during a dismal season for D.C. A league-low 10 goals in 21 games puts it on pace to score the fewest goals in league history. No other team has scored fewer than 19 this season. United set the all-time low mark of 21 goals in 30 games in 2010.

    This is not a loss for DC United. The loss will be if he returns to the club.
