Daniel Steres out for rest of 2017 MLS season

Defender to miss 6-8 weeks with stress fracture

MLS: Los Angeles Galaxy at New England Revolution Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Daniel Steres is one tough cookie.

After gutting out a 90 minute performance despite noticeable back pain, it has been revealed the starting defender suffered worse damage than originally feared.

LA Galaxy defender Daniel Steres will miss 6-8 weeks after suffering a L2-4 transverse process fracture, the club announced today.

Steres suffered the fracture in the second half of the Galaxy’s match against Seattle Sounders FC on Sept. 10. Steres has made 21 starts in 2017, recording three goals along the way. The Galaxy signed Steres from LA Galaxy II in December 2015. All-time, The 26-year-old has made 52 appearances for LA Galaxy.

At this point, what else can you do but throw your hands up? It’s been a season of curses at the StubHub Center.

In the meantime, an injury-ravaged LA head to Atlanta for a mid-week match up vs. a red-hot United team who have mercilessly destroyed their opponents at gleaming new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Sigi and Dom have their work cut out for them.
