LA Galaxy's Gyasi Zardes injures left foot, undergoes surgery

Troy Taormina-US PRESSWIRE

The LA Galaxy's homegrown signing Gyasi Zardes will miss a few weeks with a left foot injury. He joins a handful of young Galaxy players dealing with preseason injuries.

The LA Galaxy have had bad luck with their youth this preseason, with Gyasi Zardes having to undergo foot surgery. He's expected to be out six to eight weeks according to a report by LA Galaxy Insider after cracking his fifth metatarsal in his left foot. (link)

The first injury of the preseason was suffered by Kenney Walker underwent surgery to repair the same injury on his right foot. (link) The metatarsal is the long bone on the outside of the foot, easy enough to see how a soccer player would suffer that injury.

The Galaxy did get back one of their draft picks at today's practice, Charlie Rugg did a limited workout as he tries to come back from a nagging groin injury. (link)

All three players should be back in time for late March, early April, but while there was opportunity for Zardes to push for a starting role, it looks like he'll have to join his young rehabbing teammates on the reserve squad making his case all over again.
