Colorado Rapids striker Conor Casey will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a torn Achilles tendon.
Casey suffered the injury during the Rapids' 4-3 loss to the Seattle Sounders on Saturday. The star forward will miss between 8-to-10 months after tearing his Achilles tendon on a play that didn't actually involve any contact.
Casey's injury is a major blow for the Rapids, who have been battling injuries all season. Having just recently gotten its forward tandem of Casey and Omar Cummings back and healthy, the Rapids will now have to lean on striker Maccoumba Kandji, who just recently returned to the team after recovering from a torn ACL suffered in the 2010 MLS Cup Final.
What do you think of this development? Think the Rapids can recover from this, or do you think losing Casey will be too much to overcome?
