MLS Injuries: Galaxy's Husidic out 6-8 weeks

LA Galaxy midfielder Baggio Husidic will be out 6-8 weeks after fracturing his left fibula in the first half of Sunday's 2-1 victory at Minnesota United. He will require a procedure to repair the injury, the latest to sideline the Galaxy's central midfield corps.

It followed the foot injury suffered by Sebastian Lletget in March and knee injury Jermaine Jones suffered two weeks ago. Lletget is out for most of the summer, while Jones should remain out for a couple of more weeks.

Portuguese Joao Pedro, the only established central midfielder, left the Minnesota game with a hamstring issue though he is expected to play in the Galaxy's game at San Jose on Saturday.

Husidic broke his right leg sliding in attempt to tackle Adu Danladi in midfield and immediately went down the ground in the 5th minute. He was stretchered off two minutes later.

Husidic didn't start the first seven games of the 2017 season, but the Galaxy is unbeaten in the four games he started.

Rafael Garcia, who replaced Husidic on Sunday, has started just 10 games in his six seasons with the Galaxy. Pedro's replacement, Jaime Villarreal, made his MLS debut at Minnesota.

Two weeks ago, the Galaxy placed defender Robbie Rogers on their season-ending injury list due to complications from his offseason surgery to repair nerve damage in his left ankle.
