Revolution keeper Reis has surgery on left knee
New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis has had surgery on
his left knee.
Reis had a procedure to fix his quadriceps tendon Thursday at
Massachusetts General Hospital.
The 34-year-old had rotator cuff surgery in December and has
been rehabilitating since then. The shoulder injury is expected to
keep him out 12-16 weeks. He should be recovered from the knee
injury before then.

posting eight shutouts in 2009.
Recently acquired veteran Preston Burpo is expected to be the
team’s opening-day goalkeeper while Reis recovers.
The Revolution’s season starts March 27 at the Los Angeles
