It appears Andrew Duran just can't catch a break. The Seattle Sounders rookie, who was their top pick in the most recent SuperDraft, could be done for the season after tearing his ACL while on loan to the Atlanta Silverbacks. Duran has rejoined the Sounders, but only so he can get the surgery done here, which will likely happen next week.

"He was doing well," Sounders coach Sigi Schmid said of Duran's loan. "He was playing, getting 90 minutes all the time. He was getting some play at outside back, which we wanted to see. But with the injury now, he has to deal with that. He’s been through an ACL injury before, this is the other knee. We’ll see how he comes through it."

Duran only played one full season at Creighton as he was forced to deal with several injuries, including another ACL tear, and was ultimately given a fifth year due to medical redshirt. This is the second injury he's suffered since joining the Sounders and he has yet to make an appearance for the senior team outside of Reserve League play.
