Sporting Kansas City central defender Daneil Cyrus will miss the remainder of the 2011 season after suffering a broken fifth metatarsal in his left foot during the team’s Reserve League match on Monday.
The injury, also commonly referred to as a Jones fracture, will require surgery and Cyrus is expected to be out for four months, the club announced Tuesday.
Cyrus, a Trinidad and Tobago international, was signed by Sporting Kansas City in July and made five appearances in all competition, including two MLS matches and the club’s international friendly against Newcastle United FC.
The injury came in the final moments of Sporting Kansas City's 1-0 win over the Colorado Rapids on Monday at the Sporting Club Training Center in Swope Park.
Cyrus, who was immediately replaced following the injury, was making his second appearance in the MLS Reserve League, after earning an assist in Sporting Kansas City's 2-1 loss to the Chicago Fire at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park.
