Red Bull Defender Tears ACL, Surgery Next

New York Red Bulls defender Kyle Duncan suffered a torn Anterior Cruciate Ligament in his right knee during the Red Bulls match against Orlando City SC, the club announced today. Duncan will have surgery to repair the tear in the coming weeks.

Duncan, 20, is a product of the Red Bulls Academy. He returned to New York and signed an MLS contract in February after spending two years with FC Valenciennes in France. Duncan appeared in all four MLS games this season, recording his first MLS assist in the 3-0 home win over Minnesota United FC.

A timetable for return will be established after surgery.
