MOST COMMENTED

Ghanaian midfielder Nana Boateng, who was expected to step in for departed Jermaine Jones in the Colorado midfield, will miss 8-10 weeks after injuring his back in the Rapids' 2-1 loss to Real Salt Lake.

Boateng, who joined the Rapids from Manchester City, fractured three lumbar vertebrae while landing on his back in a challenge with RSL midfielder Luke Mulholland. No surgery will be required.

“This is unfortunate timing for Nana,” said Rapids sporting director Padraig Smith. “He has acclimated quickly to the team and the altitude, and was beginning to show the talent and forward drive we identified when bringing him to the club.”

Adjei-Boateng joined the Rapids after spending the past four seasons on loan at Norwegian club Stromsgodset. He has made two starts for Colorado in midfield.
