Rapids’ Wallace to miss 6-9 months with leg injury
The Colorado Rapids say defender Anthony Wallace is expected to
miss six to nine months after tearing the Achilles tendon in his
left leg during practice Sunday.
He is scheduled to have surgery Thursday.
Wallace had only recently recovered from microfracture surgery
on his right knee.
FC Dallas traded the 23-year-old defender to the Rapids in 2010
for a fourth-round pick in the 2011 draft and a conditional pick in
Wallace was part of the Rapids team that captured the club’s
first MLS Cup in 2010.
