The Philadelphia Union announced on Friday afternoon that Roger Torres underwent successful surgery to repair injuries to his left knee sustained in Monday’s Reserve League match against New England.

The press release reads in part:

“Chester, PA (April 13, 2012) – Philadelphia Union midfielder Roger Torres underwent successful surgery on Friday morning after sustaining an MCL sprain and minor meniscus damage in a 4-2 reserve league win against the New England Revolution on Monday. The 20-year-old is expected to miss 6-8 weeks.”

Union coach Peter Nowak said at a press conference on Wednesday that Torres had strained his MCL and that damage to his meniscus was possible but couldn’t be determined at that time.

We’ll keep you updated with more information as it becomes available.
