Rozeboom tears ACL, Out 6-9 Months

11

In what can only be termed terrible news, D.C. United rookie midfielder Lance Rozeboom has suffered a torn ACL. Rozeboom, who made the gameday squad for the 3-1 loss to the LA Galaxy, will have surgery on April 5th and miss at least 6 months (and almost certainly the entire season). Rozeboom had shown some promise in the preseason, including outplaying Marcelo Saragosa in defensive midfield against the Chicago Fire. He had also spent time in a more attack-minded, box-to-box role, and appeared to be another in a string of good Supplemental Draft picks for United.
