Jaqua and Boss undergo surgery - join walking wounded

 Accoring to a team release Nate Jaqua and Terry Boss have undergone surgeries. They join Pat Noonan, Jhon Kennedy Hurtado, and Brad Evans as injured players who will spend the off-season recovering.

Jaqua's surgery and recovery will be added to the already complicated off-season player mix with 5 Drafts coming up over the next few months.

Certainly the health of certain players, how [Nate] Jaqua recovers from his surgery, so maybe some additional help up front is something that is important for us

Evans and Hurtado were also mentioned in Sigi's quote sheet as essentially new players that will be added to the team this year.

But certainly having those guys [Nkufo, Fernandez] around for preseason, having [Brad] Evans back into the fold, having [Jhon] Kennedy [Hurtado] back into the fold, to a certain extent it’s almost like picking up four new guys."

Nate Jaqua, Terry Boss Undergo Surgery


RENTON, WASH. - The Seattle Sounders FC announced today that forward Nate Jaqua and goalkeeper Terry Boss have undergone surgery during the past few days.


Jaqua underwent a hip arthroscopy procedure in Vail, Colo., on Friday. He is expected to re-join training with the team in 12-16 weeks.


An eight-year MLS veteran, Jaqua is an original member of Sounders FC. After missing the first 14 games this season due to a lower abdominal injury, Jaqua, 29, returned in late June and totaled six goals and six assists in all competitions. He was named the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup player of the tournament after scoring five goals in four matches and also had three assists in 15 league appearances.


Boss, 29, had reconstructive toe surgery in Seattle last Thursday. He made his MLS debut this season and started four Open Cup and CONCACAF Champions League matches. Boss is expected to join the team for 2011 preseason training in late January.
