3. Houston Dynamo defender Jose Bizama underwent surgery on Monday to repair a broken leg. The Chilean, considered one of the most tenacious outside backs in MLS, suffered the fibular spiral fracture on his right leg in training on Friday morning. He is expected to make a full recovery and return to action this season.

    Jose Bizama "considered one of the most tenacious outside backs in MLS."  

    WTF?    Bizama has a grand total of 354 minutes on the field in MLS.  He has not played enough to even be considered an MLS player yet -- let alone "one of the most tenacious outside backs."   Where did that come from?  

    BTW .. as a Dynamo fan I love the guy.  Have great hopes for him and hate to hear about this injury.  But whoever wrote that is completely out-of-touch with reality.
