Terrence Boyd’s season debut with RB Leipzig has been pushed back at least two months.
The U.S. Men’s National Team forward suffered a partially torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee on Saturday during RB Leipzig’s friendly match against English Premier League club Queens Park Rangers. According to RB Leipzig, Boyd will miss at least 10 weeks with the injury.
The injury means that Boyd likely won’t make his full Leipzig debut until October, and will also rule him out of the USMNT match against the Czech Republic in September and any other USMNT matches that month and in October.
Boyd only recently completed a transfer to Leipzig from Rapid Vienna, where he starred as a forward for two seasons, scoring 36 goals in all competitions. Boyd scored his first goal for RB Leipzig in a friendly match against Paris Saint-Germain on July 12.
What do you think of this news? Disappointed to hear about the injury? How do you think this can affect USMNT call-ups this fall?
