Kelyn Rowe will be sidelined 6-8 weeks

Kelyn Rowe, who made his U.S. debut in July, will miss 6-8 weeks after injuring his knee in stoppage time of Sunday's 2-1 loss to NYCFC.

Jeff Lemieux, the RevolutionSoccer.net editor, tweeted that Rowe, who had to helped off the field by two Revs' staff members, sprained his right knee but will not need surgery.

Rowe has been one of the bright spots for the Revs, playing all but two of their 25 games. Those two games came when he was away on national team duty. He started two games in the group stage at the Gold Cup and then returned to the Revs.

Rowe played for the national team in midfield -- where the Revs are deep -- but New England coach Jay Heaps has used him this season at outside back.

During the summer transfer window, the Revs signed Hungarian midfielder Krisztian Nemeth and French defender Claude Dielna.

    I sure hope Arena keeps Rowe in mind going forward. I thought his quality at the Gold Cup was impressive and exactly what we need as we start to play a more sophisticated game. Couldn't believe he chose Zardes over him after group. So tired of seeing players at the senior level that don't have the requisite touch on the ball.
