Houston Dynamo midfielder Tony Cascio underwent potential season ending reconstructive right knee surgery.
The surgery to repair a torn ACL was performed by team physician Dr. Timothy Sitter at Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital.
Just two weeks ago, the Gilbert, Arizona native was optimistic about his contribution to the team this season.
"It's been a rollercoaster ride I thought I played pretty well in the preseason and worked my way into the starting lineup and then the injury it stunk," said Cascio. To hear it would only be two weeks was good, those 57 minutes went by fast. I can't wait to be back on the field helping the guys."
Unfortunately for Cascio and the Dynamo, things went south and the 24 year old is likely done for the season.
With Servando, Carrasco, Andrew Driver, Alex,Giles Barnes and more, head coach Dominic Kinnear has a variety of options to help fill the void left by Cascio and later this spring the possible losses of Brad Davis and Oscar Boniek-Garcia
