It was reported yesterday that Lletget avoided serious injury, but as it turns out, the news took a turn for the worst...

After additional tests Monday, it has been determined that LA Galaxy midfielder Sebastian Lletget sustained a Lisfranc injury during U.S. Men’s National Team World Cup Qualifier against Honduras Friday, March 24 at Avaya Stadium in San Jose, Calif.

It was originally thought that the injury was a left foot strain, however, the medical team of U.S. Soccer and LA Galaxy, headed by foot and ankle specialist Dr. Rachel Triche, determined that Lletget will require surgery next week when the swelling comes down.

Lletget will be sidelined for the next 4-6 months.

The LA Galaxy will face Vancouver Whitecaps FC on the road at BC Place this Saturday, April 1 at 7 p.m. PT live on Spectrum SportsNet and Spectrum Deportes.

This is bad. As Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes used to say, things could be worse, but they could be a lot better too.
