Barklage Out For Season, Wallace For Six Weeks For DC United

Major League Soccer's DC United announced Monday midfielder Brandon Barklage underwent reconstructive surgery in Herndon, VA on an anterior cruciate ligament injured in a friendly game with Italy's AC Milan May 26 and is done for the rest of the 2010 season.

Barklage, who suffered a second torn ACL injury since he was acquired January 15, 2009, also underwent a lateral meniscectomy to repair his medial meniscus.

The team also lost the services, albeit for six weeks, of defender Rodney Wallace, due to a fratcured left fibula suffered in a scoreless draw Saturday at RFK Stadium against the defending league champion Real Salt Lake.

He had played every minute of all 10 league fixtures before Saturday's injury.
