Toronto FC's Moor sidelined 2-3 months

Toronto FC center back Drew Moor, a key former on its 2016 MLS Cup runner-up team and 2017 MLS Cup championship team, is expected to miss 2-3 months after sustaining a quad tear two days before TFC's second leg of the Concacaf Champions League final at Guadalajara.

TFC coach Greg Vanney confirmed the news to Toronto reporters at practice on Monday.

The Reds were without four center backs for the second leg of the CCL final against Chivas: Chris Mavinga, Nick Hagglund, Jason Hernandez and Moor. (Eriq Zavaleta dressed but did not play.)

Dutch right back Gregory van der Wiel slid into the middle alongside captain Michael Bradley for the 2-1 win over Chivas in Guadalajara. Van der Wiel and Bradley started in the 2-2 tie with Chicago on Saturday while Hernandez came off the bench.

Also sidelined, for at least a few weeks, is forward Jozy Altidore with a mild hamstring strain picked up late in the second leg against Chivas. He had to leave the game and missed the shootout Chivas won.
