Jhon Kennedy Hurtado injury is ACL related, IR move is a near certainty

Sounders FC stalwart defender Jhon Kennedy Hurtado strolled into training on crutches this morning. I say stroll, because he was more walking with crutches under his arms than anything else.

He’s been walking gingerly on the side, so his left knee not completely immobilized.

We’ve been told his injury is ACL related, but the team won’t know the extent of the injury until surgery. He’s almost certainly headed to the injured reserve, however.

We’re expecting a release with more information to come sometime later today. More information to come, but this is definitely a big blow.
