Three Earthquakes players have surgery
Three members of the San Jose Earthquakes have undergone surgery.
The Earthquakes said Friday that midfielder Andre Luiz had a procedure on his left knee Wednesday to repair the medial collateral ligament and a reconstruction of his posterior cruciate ligament.
Defender Ike Opara on Thursday had surgery on his broken left foot, which he injured July 31 against the Seattle Sounders FC. Steven Beitashour underwent surgery Thursday to repair a fractured right hand that he sustained at practice on Monday.
Luiz is out for the season after appearing in nine games, having last played June 5 against FC Dallas. Opara and Beitashour had their surgeries performed by Dr. Michael Oberlander at Sequoia Surgical Pavilion in Walnut Creek.
