Montreal's Porter sidelined 9-12 months with knee injury

Montreal forward Cameron Porter, whose miracle goal propelled the Impact into the semifinals of the Concacaf Champions League, will miss the remainder of the MLS season after suffering an ACL tear in his first league start. The Princeton product will be out 9-12 months.

Porter suffered the injury after landing awkwardly on the turf during the first half of Saturday's game at the New England Revolution. The injury was confirmed after meeting with Montreal doctors Tuesday afternoon. He is scheduled for surgery next week.

Porter came on late in the second leg of the Concacaf Champions League quarterfinal series against Pachuca and scored the stoppage-time goal that sent the Impact into the semifinals against Alajuelense.

Porter assisted on the first goal in the 2-0 Montreal win over Alajuelense.

    Disappointing setback for a tremendous young man and excellent player. I covered Cam for ESPN last fall and immediately recognized his talent. Princeton and the other Ivies do produce some quality players. Pulling for him to have a complete recovery and pick up where he left off in an excellent start to his career.
